Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-10-30 
Narcotic noise/drone with sparse treated voice-overs related to the Nazi persecution of homosexuals. Sublime waves and layers of distortion, tempered with electronic tones. Some truly beautiful noise-drone with a powerful theme. Artist is Mark Wilson from 15 Degrees Below Zero. Songs fade into one another so watch clunky dead stops.

1) beautiful noise drone, then dialog begins, sparsely treated interview about persecution comes across as soundtrack to a documentary
2) splendid drone, sirens appear, dialog is buried well enough to be a creepy part of the music (instead of dialog)
3) looping tones, buried dialog is treated well, less distorto
4) distorto drone, lovely
5) begins with echoey voiceover, treated enough to be creepy and non-soundtracky, music is chill electronic tones for the most part
6) electronic feel, sparser, collage of tones for first half, then builds to an onslaught of distorto heavily layered noise
