I'm a huge Richard H Kirk fan, in his various guises, and hadn't come across this Sandoz offering before. One of the reviews in here name checked many of my RHK favourites (Number of Magic, Virtual State, Closed Circuit [electronic eye]) so I had high hopes of something special. I was underwhelmed on my first listen though, and despite repeated listens, remain sadly underwhelmed. Kirk's best output for me is where he manages to maintain a tone, or theme, through all the tracks on one album, and if they segue into one another well, all the better. But although there are glimpses of that from time to time, along with entertaining signature samples and loops, it just doesn't gel.

The opener, Spooks inna Congo, is a genuine classic Kirk track though, with I'm Not Afraid (track 3) and closing track Phaseur both good fun. The move into Beaucoup de Gris Gris from Dissolved in Acid is one of several deft touches across the album, and it's well produced, but for me it is too disjointed and fails to provide the sort of consistency you get on other Kirk albums. Mind you, I felt the same about Digital Lifeforms Redux, so maybe I should stay off the Sandoz.

I'd head for other Kirk offerings before this, but definitely check out 'Spooks inna Congo'.

Afrocentris is less up-front than his other recent releases like Neurometrik or Bush Doctrine. It's subdued and only speaks out rarely in quick bursts of anger, such as Nye (we are silent) and Bring Me Joy. The rest of the time, it's got a windy, lonely texture to it, with an element of Christ's subtle ambience in Spooks Inna Congo and Beaucoup de Gris Gris.

This is his most Afro-sampledelic record as it contains snippets of garbled French dialogue and latin guitar from the Maghreb as well as his usual tribal chanting field recordings. It's quite a desolate record, but defiant as well, and it can be heard in the music that the fighting spirit of Africa is ready to make life difficult for men who come to plunder its riches.

This album is simply sublime, majestic in it's very nature and a true Ambient Techno CLASSIC.

Ranking up there with Kirk's best ever work, it's an amazing melodic trip filled with the usual tribal, electro-tech and pulsating beats. Fabulous samples punctuate the ebb and flow and help to capture the mood perfectly. Rarely has Kirks use of vocal samples from films and broadcasts been so good as they are here...

Up there with Closed Circuit, LoopStatic, Virtual State, Number of Magic and his other premium output, this is one of my very favourite Electronica albums... perfect for a train ride while reading a book to or from work, chilling out to at home or on the iPod at work...

You'll love it...

I think all his work is brilliant. It's simplistic, and I find it nourishing and funky.
