no sign of a new album and this forum is irrelevant

Post by Picnic »

There is still no sign of a new album to be released on a short notice, say somewhere this year!! Nor that Vanessa-Mae is planning recording or composing, or teaming up with someone.

Moreover, this forum is virtually irrelevant these days. There is only posting by one or two persons, and there is no communication between memberes whatsoever.

Doing a google news search gives more information on her olympic fraud than on recent musical achievements. Not to mention the results on Vanessa-Mae's that have probable been mentioned after her from the time she was hot.

I am wondering what I am doing here anymore. There is no fun here at all

I take issue with the forum being irrelevant. There's still links to past concerts and interviews (not to mention the questions we've sent her that she's graciously answered) that fans will find interesting. No one is tasked with any responsibilities with the upkeep of this forum, nor will anyone ever be other than myself. So why make a big deal out of it?

Vanessa has not released an album since 2005, so the slow traffic on this forum is to be expected. Yes, I'd love to see some new music from Vanessa-Mae, but only when she's ready to release it. I have no problem with her focusing on other adventures outside of music. She spent the first 10 years of her career with a grueling schedule of concerts, appearance, and album releases. Now, she's in a difference phase in her life where music is not necessarily always a #1 priority. Why be upset over that?

She has stated once in the "Devil's Trill" documentary that as a musician, she always have ideas floating around in her head; but it doesn't necessarily lead to anything concrete right away. Despite the drought of new music, there's nothing to be gained by rushing out a project. She's never promised a timeline on her new musical endeavors, so I never had any expectation that anything was going to happen in the near term. We will have to be patient, but in the meantime, we can enjoy the music she already has combined with listening to other artists.

It's true that her musical absence is a pity but as Benji said, we have to accept her new way of life, which is not to include the music as a priority. Of course, we as her loyal fans would like to see her realising an album (2004 was the last) or performing, but she must have her reasons why she does not.
Another thing is that she has sometimes said she was preparing new music, and last interview in Russia said that it's the 25th aniversary of T&F and that before a new album, it was going to be a celebration in 2020. But now I think it's imposible a new album with the epidemic.

I understand your position, you're the owner of this forum!

For me it is irrelevant: there is no news about Vanessa-Mae nor it there any communication between members as it used to be in the early days. That was the fun of this forum. There are virtually no active members left anymore.

Vanessa-Mae is fully entitled to put her career as musician on hold, temporarily of permamently as she wishes. I was just hoping that she would stop hinting at new music and albums if she is not living up to that commitment.

I haven't listend to any of her music since november 2014 when her olympic fraud emerged.
