If only Brad from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" knew who he was trying to seduce while wearing his Long John Silver's uniform on a delivery drive.
EDIT: OMDFB I had no idea based on the Heart canon that Nancy could challenge her sister on the "grit" needed to make these tunes speak to the soul. I never knew that Nancy harbored an inner Sass Jordan or Beth Orton.

This I learned today: Circadian Rhythm Disorder is one of several recordings which all fall under the umbrella of Marco Minnemann's Normalizer II project. Several other musicians have also based recordings on the same drum track over roughly the past decade.
Now for the funny part. It turns out that I owned two of the others already -- Trey Gunn's Modulator, and Alex Machacek's 24 Tales. But all three of them took it in such different directions in terms of musical composition, choice of overdubbed instruments, how high the drums are in the mix at any given point, and where to place the track breaks (plus I bought them spread out over a number of years) that I didn't notice that all three albums utilize the exact same percussion track!
OK, now I need to listen to all three of them back-to-back.

Haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but initial impression is that it is jazzier than Circadian Rhythm Disorder (reminds me a bit of Zappa's Shut Up... recordings at times), but not as "out there" as 24 Tales.

Side Note: Later Monster Magnet seems to be straight-up Metal, not very psychedelic at all. Not bad, but also not good. Is there another group out there with a sound vaguely similar to Space Lord / Temple of Your Dreams? My Google-Fu is weak, as is my in-depth knowledge of Metal in general.
