We discussed Torn albums the last time. David Torn himself apparently does 
not consider "Cloud About Mercury" to be a looping album. So it doesn't 
make much sense to include it on the essential listening page.

Since we couldn't decide which of "what means solid traveller" and 
"tripping over god" to put on there, we opted to put up both albums. 
However, despite repeated pleading and begging, nobody wrote any review 
either one explaining the importance of those albums to looping. I'm still 

You guys mention these all the time, surely one of you Torn fans can 
to come up with a couple paragraphs for each explaining why the looping on 
these recordings is interesting, how it fits in the historical context, 
what made it influential, etc. Give it a shot!
