Album Review

This is basically a collection of noise collages. The problem is that most of the time, there is so little going on that there’s no sound coming out of the speakers. Most of the tracks feature synth warbles that fade in and out over the course of a few minutes.

1.Mostly silent with intermittent blips every minute or so.
2.Very dark feel with only slightly more going on than the first track.
3.Sounds like a garbled radio transmission manipulated to almost have a beat. The background, however, is nearly identical to the second track. Drums cut in about 0:30 into it. This would have to be my pick for the CD, but that’s not saying much.
4.More near-silence with occasional scratches and sparks.
5.Almost identical to 2, but there are little squeaks that sound like metal-on-metal; like a squeaky swing set or something.
6.Starts off with what sounds like noise from a tunnel. Not particularly interesting on its own. Electronic drone starts 1:00 through.
7.Closer to 3. There is a distinct electric guitar and some definite knob-twidling that gives it an interesting feel. Track 3 is still better though.
8.Cracks and pops.
9.Again, almost identical to 2. Grating violin comes in part way through.
