Casey Campbell I have been an LPD fan for ages. There are countless albums that mean so much to me - but this may very well be the best thing they have ever done! Pure genius.

Sergio Olavarrieta A more interesting and cohesive album than Aquarius and Angel. Really atmospheric, melting and spacey. Welcome to the post Covid LPD. Favorite track: Nightingale.

Rob Jadczak I'm never lacking amazement from LPD releases. Their sound is ever evolving, riding the waves of time. "And once again... it's... youuuuuuuu..." Favorite track: Postcards From Home.

Robert Wallace IMMENSE!...that's the first word I thought of after my first listen. The Dots have created another gem of an album. I'm not sure where it comes from but I hope it never stops...Everything about this album is absolutely spot on. This is a 'Must Have' in anyone's collection...now for my second listen... Favorite track: This is The Museum.

Michael Weeks I have loved the LPD's for decades, they have been the perennial soundtrack to my life, and the last few albums have shown that they are just as vital, creative, moving, captivating and awe inspiring as ever. The main sequence albums are always a beautiful distillation of the material presented in the alternates (Chemical Playschools/EKS solo works) and this newest album is no exception. The combined work of the now three piece band is honed into 12 perfect pieces of sound. Favorite track: There Be Monsters.

about

“A cubicle for you, a cubicle for me….but not together…”
The Year 2020 was not a year for a band to 'get things together in the country', or gather in a room to write songs. This statement certainly applied to the Legendary Pink Dots with two members in The Netherlands and one in the UK.
The pandemic reared its ugly head as the Dots’ criss-crossed Europe on the second stage of their 40th Anniversary Tour.
Just a few days before much of Italy locked down the band was in Milan. A few days later, the destination was Cologne where they opted for a hotel in the countryside…it turned out that the resting place was one village away from the most lethal outbreak of the virus in Germany.
The tour eventually finished in a sold-out club with a worryingly low ceiling in London. There were hugs, a real feeling of togetherness with a truly lovely audience.
Then the World stopped.
It was the last time The Dots were in the same room.
Song writing and recording were necessarily deemed to happen in cyberspace for the rest of 2020 and 2021.
As a result, the lyrics are utterly poignant, desperate, yet sometimes bearing a flash of gallows humour. The soundtrack is a purging fire. It’s a fire that still burns, and as I type this I can say I have never been so excited about the impending release of a new Dots’ album.
Never mind the distance, there is a single-mindedness about “The Museum Of Human Happiness.” It’s 2022. We’ll meet again….EK
