Alan Parsons

Dodici, quattordici anni fa circa, cominciava il mio approccio alla musica.
Il primissimo gruppo che incontrai sul mio "percorso" fu l'Alan
Parsons Project
di Alan Parsons ed Eric Woolfson.
Il loro suono puo' essere sintetizzato cosi': una miscela di suoni elettronici ed acustici, orchestrazioni sinfoniche, cori, testi surrealistici, vocalist d'eccezione, l'idea del concept-album e la presenza di brani strumentali.

Uno dei primi esempi di post rock, datato 1991.
Gli Slint con l'album "Spiderland".
La recensione su Amazon.com e' sufficientemente esaustiva:

Editorial Reviews
Amazon.com
Although this Kentucky combo had a short lifespan, its influence has been extraordinary, presaging the underground "math-rock" revolution and spawning spinoffs such as Tortoise and Gastr Del Sol. But don't go thinking that the foursome is a mere footnote: The bracingly dense, dizzyingly complex songs that vein this, their second full-length release, perfectly capture the smarter face of early-'90s thug-rock. Yes, Slint's sound is descended from punk, but its members--particularly guitarist Brian McMahan--never subscribed to the "keep it simple, stupid" philosophy. Spiderland is so rife with breakneck tempo changes, off-kilter chord progressions, and bizarro-world themes, you'd be hard-pressed to go a listen without
discovering something new. --David Sprague
