I agree with last reviewer 'mday'from london. Its a very biological sound. Like being in a half awake, half asleep state. very spacey, really beautiful. theres obviously a strong set of ideas behind this whatever they are, it's just a great record. listen to this and suspend time for an hour. A good thing in your day...when you feel the need!

This cd is PERFECT for all you Eminem and Britney loving types, because this quaint little rock and roll album is filled with classic three minute tracks that echo with the sweet sounds of powerpop three-chord riffs. The minute that chorus comes on-line singing out directly to your soul about the pains and tribulations of falling in and out of love, of finding that perfect partner and trying as hard as you can to keep them, and other wonderfully fulfilling subjects - you KNOW that this is the album you have always dreamed of. It's the way Vladislav completely understands the pubescent mind that allows you to fall in love with his immediate over-production - the YEARS that this man has spent in a studio with his four professional song-writing chums, sixteen session musicians, thirty two different backing singers, forty eight different funny plug-ins that correct the slightly off-key singing, the three hundred and sixty four company producers, the six hundred thousand executives making sure he gets everything how they want it... MAN! Vladislav has tried SO HARD to get it right for everybody.... +sigh+
[shhh stop laughing!!!! do you think they'll buy it? aw cummon!!!!! shhh, I think they're listening??! are they?? NO? ok... right, it's ACTUALLY a sixty-two minute long sheer duvet of a track, like Brian Eno's Thursday Afternoon it kind of just fluffs out a beanbag, sits on it, and then stays there for an hour - it's a description of place, Thursday Aftenoon was set by your lounge window on a spring day with the light filtering through leaves on to your whitewashed walls, Neroli was in a red velvet lined harem in unspeakably drousy heat, ANIMA is set in the coolest of neon bars.

Suits you Mr. Delay, Sir. 19 Feb. 2001
By - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Nice. No, your eyes (and Amazon) aren't deceiving you, this is Vlad's new album for 2001, and it consists entirely of the track "Anima." A 62 minute masterpiece that twists, turns, starts, stops and generally flows in the usual stuttered, broken manner that Delay employs. So obviously, fans of his work need to buy this thing right now!
However it isn't quite business as usual. Delay is known for throwing in minute speech clips (and other "human" sounds like coughs and sighs), and only "suggesting" melodies and rhythms rather than playing particularly noticable ones outright. Also much of the rest of the sounds used, other than melodic or percussive - are very much "found sounds" - short bursts of everything and anything. Well all this is taken even further here; with few brakes and soft passages, and fragments of melodic suggestions bursting forth every so often, I'd say "cacophony" describes Anima well (and not at all in a bad way). The one single constant throughout most of this release is the soft ebb of the trademark Delay pads, placed further back in the mix, but always there. Taking a look at this thing in Sound Forge is an educational experience - this is dense and complex stuff and you'll hear something new every few seconds, if you listen well enough.
Anyway, essay over. Vladislav's music kicks serious low end - so buy Anima ASAP.
NOTE: The vinyl - according to some _very_ reliable sources - apparently contains different material (and there's six sides of it!!), so get both that and the CD for the full experience.

A successful coda to his 2000 releases 29 April 2001
By R Diaz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This Finnish producer cranks out albums about as frequently as anyone in recent memory, four in the past year alone. He's also the rare talent that can back up the output with critically lauded performances. Under his Delay name, "Entain" explored the fractured dub aesthetic, the Luomo alias put out the house gem "Vocalcity," a live-ish laptop-techno album as Uusitalo, and now Anima.
Anima weaves a combination of his various guises, a sixty minute experiment of sonic dub and his ever-present waves of drone. Recorded as one track, noises peak out corners and tickle the edge of hearing, all coated in echo and reverb effects. It's a hypnotic beatscape journey that challenges your attention, seemingly determined to hide content in the background.
Delay's dogged determination to reinterpret territory he's mined before pays off as an artistic endeavor. Since it conceptually remixes his prior work, though, it serves more as coda to a successful 2000 than a piece that can stand beside Entain or Vocalcity.

Swoops, sweeps, a story(?), and generally great 2k1 music 25 April 2001
By Rodney Reid - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Ok, I bought the clicks n cuts vol 1 w/vadislav delay, and kept seeing him referenced again places.
In listening to this cd, I forget that it's on most of the time --- at the beginning I realize it, and some parts in the middle, but overall the swoop/sweep/click/I don't know what to classify it classical music(?) part just blends into a hypnotic blah for me. Parts in the middle (it's one 62 min track) give it structure and storyline feel, but hypnotize until the end 2 minutes which contain more stressed sounding vocal clips with v.delay's swoop-housey minimalistic sound. There's no beat, only sweep/swoop on this cd. Saying all that though, I love it, and have listened to it at least 6 times in the last week.
Very soothing.

Delay is good, this album is not his best, okay? 25 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It's a strange and often dastardly subculture that lauds its artists as if they are prize-winning pups who can do no wrong.
To cut to the chase: If you're looking for an album to buy, and you want to try Mr Delay, then the better album is Mutila. There is more variety, better pacing, and less of the overly flowery gestures. Anima is a lush, mostly beatless beast, and showcases a wishy-washyness that does not make for satisfying repeated listens.
More detail:
Vladislav Delay has made much ambient music with varied success and varied names. Through the Clicks&Cuts cd volumes his name has gathered momentum and so have his releases. This one, which came out with this fantastic cover, did him well, but unfortunately it is not so good.
The cover is really good though, isn't it? Makes you want to buy it instead of Mutila, but that would be a mistake.
**Entain, which you can buy with this album, is too similar. The better match is with Mutila.
Mutila is the better album, this is what I'm trying to desperately to say here.

Vladislav Delay the album for finely tuned ears 16 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A DJ friend recommended this CD, Anima as well as any Vladislav Delay CD when I asked for ambient suggestions. I can't say he did me wrong, I have since listened to this CD quite a bit, it's a piece of work from beginning to end... as one of my first ambient purchases it is very much on the european wavelength. Smooth and seemless transitions, the artist creates a musical landscape which keeps your ears glued to it from beginning to end. Much could be said for the artist, who seems to have endless approaches to creating a the wall of sound. Homework, remains my favorite, if you can compare. I have them both plus everything from this mega talented artist.
