Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2005-08-24 
Interesting & often captiviating ambient, space music. Features Kim Cascone (from noisers PGR and early 90’s experimental/ambient label, Silent Records) and Larry Thrasher who’s worked with Psychic TV. Great late night listening.
(((1))) Bassy, dubby, floating ‘ala the Orb on “U.F.Orb.”
(((2))) Short piece with slow motion, bubbling think Robert Rich.
((((3)))) Deep, spacey sounds betwixt a few drones eventually builds up with bouncy dub bits & distorted voices.
(((4))) A moon portal giving off steam ?
((((5)))) Space-dub, Funny slo-mo voice: “oooh lightwaves...” + plenty of “wee-woo-woobing” growing and glowing in the mix.
(((6))) Pretty but short Tangerine Dream-ish bit.
((((7)))) Slow, ambience, perkolating , slightly noisy but mellow, sampled female voices.
(((8))) Short spacey interlude
(((9))) Deep outer-planetary, electro-warbling, tabla-ish beats, repetitive beat-laden later but slightly annoying.
(((10))) Random, noodling like part of a Goblin or Zombi intro.
((((11)))) Warm, glowing feeling, tabla, kinda electro-psych with Dr. Timothy Leary samples.
((((12)))) Short piece of deep electro-ambience
((((13)))) Solid, big beats along hip-hop/dub lines, blasts of lasers shooting about.
((14)) Clicky, slow dub.
((((15)))) Jazzy, bouncy, nice Durutti Column-like guitar lines, repetitive but catchy. (Note: track actually ends at 6:28)
