Album Review
David McWade
Reviewed 2007-10-30 
Lush (but often dissonant) ambient-celestial often mixed with classical, drone, industrial or post-industrial or electronic sounds of various types. (Track 5, 7 are particularly industrial-percussive). Some of it is like taking the classic Arcana Coelestia compilation, which goes way back, and updating it. Mufaor, even YIF would probably like this. On the other hand some of the songs here are not as profound as that material (but still beautiful) and so Brian Eno circa Discreet Music or Vidna Obmana would be appropriate things to play this next to. Most tracks are lengthy. Other than previously mentioned, try: 2, 8, 10
1 Dissonant
2 Lovely, classical, very lush
4 Lush, dissonant and heightened neo-ambient feedback, develops somewhat, stays on theme, seems like an exercise
5 A complete break: balls-out industrial pounding, ambient-celestial and noisy parts, mixed in with dissonant ambience
6 Minimal drones, short
7 Post-industrial, industrial, noisier parts, develops
8 Lovely, taking Steve Reichian repetition to a whole new level
9 Haunting drone, classical orchestra from the netherworld warming up
10 More beautiful dissonant classical material
