    You should hear it all. There's not a lot of it.

    Check out "The Manual" if you don't hate reading on computer screens. The specifics are a bit dated at this point, but the general idea is more accurate than ever.

    No, I didn't even know there were real copies. I just read it online forever ago.

    I've never held a copy of it in my life but I get the impression that it's become quite collectable and hard to find over the years, just seems like the sort of thing that you would have for some reason.

    chill-out is one of my absolute favorite albums ever, and my go-to album when nap time comes.

    dont really like the white room except for that justified & ancient track, not a fan of this kind of house i guess

    I can't fall asleep to this and I've tried.

    I love "3 AM Eternal," I hope everyone else does too.

    Basically, I had listened to Chill Out a couple of years ago, and it grew from mildly entertaining to an obsessive listen for a summer. It's unusual, imaginative and eerie. A really fascinating piece of music to release, and I thought these guys are a bit weird, but never researched them then. Also I never bothered to listen to any more of their stuff because I thought they were just "house" music, which I don't really listen to much at all.

    I downloaded White Room the other day and was blown away. So much poppy weirdness. I did not expect some light house with vague Marky Mark type raps and amazing female vocal samples. The whole thing runs like one track, but it also has so many twists and turns just like Chill Out. All of the weird themes I noticed that were on Chill Out (3 a.m., Eternal, Justified and Ancient, etc), were on this one too. I was thinking hey there must be something weird going on with these guys, something mystical or philosophical, and sure enough, wikipedia paints them as kind of subversive pranksters, anarchist artists.

    Their discography is murky, they stopped rereleasing all of their material in the early 90's. Looks like these are the two albums as KLF, but they have a Timelords album as well. Is that any good?

    I have a hard time figuring out what they actually did release. Is the "Black Room" a true legit album out there? I see it on torrents.

    Also I do not expect to download another house album from that period and like it as much as White Room. I'm assuming it's a deviation from the standard? Like if I downloaded an 808 State album or something I'd just be bored.

    The Timelords single and "Stand by the JAMs" are probably the best things they did.

    For anybody wanting more KLF sounding stuff from this era, I highly recommend the Utah Saints' first album.
