Start out with Mandylion.   It's amazing and is generally considered to be their masterpiece.  And  if you enjoy that, you will definitely enjoy Nighttime Birds.  After that, go with Home, which I think is their best of their recent releases.  And after that, well, just post again and me or someone else will figure out how to advise you next :)

My first was How to Measure a Planet?.  It's their most "epic" of the ones I've heard in terms of length, but it covers a lot of ground and it was the perfect start for me.  I know a lot of people recommend Mandylion for starters but I don't think I would have pursued the band further had I started with that one.  It's a good album, but it took time to grow on me.  Opinions are bound to differ.

"Century Media is about to release 'Sand and Mercury', a 10-CD [!] box with all our Century Media releases gathered in a nice box for a fair price (around 30/35 euros). I wrote liner notes for every album. The box set is limited to 3,000 copies.

"This year it's 10 years ago we released 'How To Measure A Planet?', so you figure out what will be Century Media's next special release.

"Another special release: Vic Records will re-release 'Downfall - The Early Years' this spring. It contains the 'Downfall' CD as well as an interesting six-track demo we did for 'Almost A Dance' with former vocalist Bart Smits. Recorded at the beginning of 1992, this demo was the last recording we did with Bart. Very interesting material.

"The owner of Vic Records, Roel, is an old school mate of me and Bart and kindly asked us to do a re-release, as the original 'Downfall' CD isn't available anymore.

"This release is a true revival of the old-school demo tape days. More info at www.vicrecords.com.

"And back into the present: We were asked by ProductieHuis & MusicLab Brabant to write music for a dance ensemble. This cross-over combination of music and dance will be called 'Arr. 2'.

"And yes, we are working on new material. Trust us and don't worry. You will hear new GATHERING songs in 2008."

/o/
wanna hear that!

OMFG, Almost a Dance material with Bart, that is something I definatly want to check out, even if the most probable is a very bad production.

I wonder how expansive will be the box.

Oh and I also wonder how different is the new "Downfall" from the "Downfall the early years (2001)". The old one was very intresting even with the rough production, but if this new one will have the same production, then its useless....

Maybe she should pick Mandylion first since its more alike Nighttime Birds. Souvenires is almost a new style...
