3 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Ms. J. Forrest on 15 Sept. 2009
Format: Audio CD
While music has evolved tremendously over the years, listening to this Anthology of Chinese Experimental Music perhaps references that essential link to Ling Lun, who according to Chinese mythology paved the way for the expansion of music in China.
There's over 5 hours of listening on this compilation of abstract non academic music from mainland China's explosive underground - a scene that's now emerging and taking on a radical direction all of its own.

This collection spans many variations within the developing musical culture; however, this particular noise art is an acquired taste. Taking the listener on a fundamental journey, it demonstrates how artists have fought against the grain of what has been some strictly controlled mainstream. It has the potential to provide insightful listening for anyone who has a growing interest in the study of Chinese culture or alternative musical viewpoints.

With many extended stretches of crashes, blips and bleeps, much of the work could easily have established a pride of place during the rise of the acid house scene, which descended on the U.K. during the latter half of the 1980's. Given the aforementioned comparison, it would denote that some of the experimentation on this work is marginally dated.

That said, there are some brief moments of picturesque harmony, but the work mainly reverts back to scientific landscapes, nuclear sound waves and general hi-tech engineering science, often making it hard to place.

A distinct exception to the rule occurs with the outlandish yet more traditional instrumentation by Dancing Stone. Additional appeal occurs with intriguing tracks by Loga - consisting of strong imaginary elements, Eric Lins' psychological thriller, Z.S.

It goes along very well with the 7-Volume Series 9 April 2014
By This Guy Frritz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Whenever I listen to it, I would enjoy it as much as I did the 7-Volume Anthology Series. Not all the tracks I like on this set, but I would NOT be as critical as the 1-star reviewer (Notice how many people find his review helpful: ZERO!). A very good majority of the selections I like, as well as a few non-electronic works that are featured there. That's why I gave it 4 stars.

One of the parts I find unforgettable: CD 2, Track 7: the way how it starts with "BAD!". :-D

On CD 1, Track 5, I went to the Sub Rosa website, highlight the Chinese characters on the track title, and "Googled" that. The translation turned out to be "Chih-Feng Lin".

A few artists were also featured in the Anthology Series:

Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music 4 ---> "Sea-Food" by Wang Changcun

Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music 5 ---> Li Chin Sung (Dickson Dee or PNF): "Shame" AND Dajuin Yao: "Satisfaction Of Oscillation"

Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music 6 ---> "Yes or No" by Torturing Nurse.

Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music 7 ---> "Decomposition" by Dennis Wong and Sin:Net.

Don't call us. 5 April 2013
By Ustro Thewstonach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you like to hear toast being scraped while a dentists drill screams in the background then this compilation is for you.
Overall, it has about as much experimental value as rubbing cosmetics into a bunny rabbits eye. I admire Sub Rosa for releasing works like the 'Anthology of Noise' series but I wish they had been more picky with this one.
