Order of Storms

The most obvious unanswered question about the Drexciya storm series is that instead of the oft stated 7 storms there were in fact 8 records released between 2001 and 2002 which could be considered as storms.
Using information from James Stinson interviews and the few records that stated their number in the series its quite clear that Drexciya’s Grava 4 is the odd one out. At first I thought this had to be part of the series, if not the eye of the storm itself. However, once you know that this is the first post storm album its very exciting to see where they get to with their concept.
For now though I will simply list the order of storms.

1. DREXCIYA - HARNESSED THE STORM
2. TRANSLLUSION - THE OPENING OF THE CEREBRAL GATE
3. THE OTHER PEOPLE PLACE - LIFESTYLES OF THE LAPTOP CAFÉ
4. ABSTRACT THOUGHTS - HYPOTHETICAL SITUATIONS
5. LAB RAT XL - MICE OR CYBORG
6. TRANSLLUSION - L.I.F.E.
7. SHIFTED PHASES - THE COSMIC MEMOIRS OF THE LATE GREAT RUPERT J. ROSINTHROPE

love the site! when i discovered it i couldn't believe someone else had been thinking about exactly the same stuff as me at about the same time. i tried to put together my own storm numbering system - it was probably on june 8 too. mine's the same except grava 4 at no.5, shifted phases at 6, and i left off l.i.f.e. how do you know for sure that grava 4 is 'post-storm'?
