Editorial Reviews

Unlike most acts of their vintage, The Legendary Pink Dots look forward. After more than 25 years, they continue tto make compelling new music that is demanded by fans and maintains a high level of quality. Led by Edward Ka- Spel and Phil 'Silverman' Knight, the band continues to create their singular brand of modern psychedelia. This album features pulsing Krautrock, dark and sinister pop and epic post-industrial sound-scapes that the band are known for

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Few Greats I Still shell out $ For.. November 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Even with the departure of longtime members this band still has it. While not as genius as their prime era it still offers everything we've come to love. Gods and Machines is one of the highlights, the end will leave you motionless and shocked. No Star too Far is probably the catchiest song here (had it on repeat for days) Russian Roulette is always great and Radiation Day is excellent experimentation even tho' it's so washed out sounding (intentional) Ending all this is a 13 minute epic Ascension which builds and builds closing the album perfectly. Well it's been 30 years and even though crucial members have left I'll still say 4 stars easily. Cheers!!

May very well be the band's best work since 'Nemesis On-Line' ('98), at least in my humble opinion. Even though longtime LPD member - Niels Van Hoornblower (sax, flute, clarinet) has currently left the band 'Seconds Late For The Brighton Line' is still clearly borderline brilliant. Tunes I simply could not get enough of are "Russian Roulette", "Leap Of Faith", the (almost) industrial space rock "God And Machines", "Someday" and the thirteen-minute power-house of a piece - the ambient gem "Ascension" [possibly the CD's best cut]. Line-up: Edward Ka-Spel - keyboard, synthesizer, devices & vocals, Silverman - keyboard, synthesizer & processing and Erik Drost - guitar & bass. Essential.

What is there to say about the Legendary Pink Dots? They're about as un-rock and un-commercial as you can get. They're horrendously prolific (well over 20 albums since 1980 more than counts as "prolific"). They're not for the casual music listener at all. Not even a little. Their music is more than a little strange. Their Wikipedia page lists their music under the following genres: Avant-Garde rock, Experimental, Neo-Psychedelia, Ambient, Post-Punk, Industrial, Noise, Synthpop, Industrial rock, and Noise rock. Chances are they'd decline being aligned with any of those terms.

I'm a big, big fan of the music released by New York indie label ROIR, and I jumped at the chance to buy this album at a mere $5 in May 2011. Did I have any idea as to what I was getting myself into? Heavens, no! Did I care? Not a bit! I'm someone who constantly craves new music, and I got more than I bargained for when I bought 'Seconds Late for the Brighton Line'. Lots more.

The 'Dots are a band that grow on you over time. If at first you don't like their music, try, try again! The secret is to shed all expectations when pressing "play"; they neither have nor ever will play the music you want them to play. My personal favorite tracks are "Russian Roulette," "Leap of Faith," "Radiation Day," "No Star Too Far," "Ascension" and the vinyl-and-digital-only bonus track "Torchsong/Cubic Caesar (Live in Germany 2009)," but for a variety of reasons. Some of it is the intricate keyboard work, some of it is Edward Ka-Spel's lyrics, some of it is just the groove of the song. It's all in how it moves you, y'know?
