Album Review
Princess D
Reviewed 2005-07-26 
Ambient. A minimal brooding landscape. Super chill but very beautiful.
From the blurb: “..an arctic soundscape of whooses that pulsates with the threat of an imminent earthquake..”

** (1) Chimes, swelling dreamy drone.
(2) Sounds like a Chinese string instrument, soft slightly discordant, short.
(3) Church bells, dissonant repeated chord.
** (4) Melodic, classical sounding guitar, again utilizes off-key sounds to create an interesting piece. White noise builds over melody, sound becomes more sinister.
(5) Continues sinister sound. Buzzing with melody behind it.
(6) Heartbeat pulse over drone that is becomes sometimes noisy like airplanes or traffic, sometimes a haunting melody.
(7) A tune over wind sound, pan flute, guitar. Pink Floyd-esque.
(8) Long track (7+ mins), bells, church bells, wind sounds.
(9) Guitar, soft and short.
(10)Short wind noise (<1min).
(11)Louder and distorted with feedback. Very long (10 mins). I found it less lovely than the rest of the album.
