5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle Dreams 16 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Robin Guthrie has a gentle and distinctive musical imagination.
His fine work with the Cocteau Twins is, of course, unforgettable
but that his instantly recognisable guitar style and compositional
prowess live on in other guises is a good reason to be cheerful.

'Carousel' is a lovely album. The dense but luminous soundscapes
that are his signature have rarely sounded better. Never one to hit
you over the head with a stick Mr Guthrie's ten new pieces creep
up on you slowly and whisper in your ear.
It is impossible not to follow.

The building blocks of the musical material are relatively
uncomplex but small ideas achieve a huge impact in his hands.
There is a simple glowing humanism running through every last
strand of this project. Healing sounds for troubled times.

Sometimes the pulsing emotional beauty is almost overwhelming.
'Search Among The Flowers' is a particularly vivid example.
The jangling ostinato is shot through with icy electronic winds
which fail to chill the warm heart of the primary melodic material.
It is a truly stunning and magically sustained idea.

'The Girl With The Little Wings' is equally enchanting.
Mr Guthrie has the power to conjure beauty out of almost nothing.
The spell he casts here lasts much longer than the song.

Final track 'Little Big Fish' stands out for me as one of his
finest achievements. We could be deep under water or way out
amongst the stars. Either way the landscape he has created in
this profoundly moving piece quite takes one's breath away.

What a truly wonderful recording this is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant bliss... 6 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Its always tempting to think that Robin Guthrie won't be able to do any more with his beautiful brand of noise but he has confounded expectations again. Granted I am already one of the converted and bought noth Imperial and Continental, however this set of pieces is exceptionally lovely. My favourite is 'Some sort of Paradise' which shimmers gently and rises and falls beautifully to caress and sooth your soul. I'm also very partial to 'Sparkle' which, to me, is a chilled version of Angelo Badalementi - but with a beautiful harmonic and melodic structure which positions it very much in mainstream music rather than soundtrack-land. Every track has it's own secret magic and one run through of this album is enough to chill you for the rest of the day - I like to listen to it on busy trains where it neutralises all the stresses and annoyances.

If this all sounds like hyperbole then I urge to try it out for yourself.

I recently emailed Robin on his mySpace site to suggest that his music should be available on prescription as it has the ability to calm and soothe you after even the most stressful day - totally drug-free... It's well worth the money for that alone. Thanks Robin! Neil

If you liked the Cocteau Twins, and their Victorialand in particular, you will love this. Beautiful melodies and magic moods. A must-buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 4 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
Robin Guthrie demonstrates, yet again, that he has not lost his touch. Much as I agree that these tracks could easily accommodate a vocal part for Liz Fraser's wonderful warbleings, I feel that I ought to point out that the music here stands up very well on its own. It is just rank sentimentalism that motivates those bemoaning her absence here. All the Cocteau's albums are available, from Garlands to Milk & Kisses and it is still possible to get the collected EPs: Lullabies to Violaine, Vol. 1 and Lullabies to Violaine, Vol. 2 as well as BBC Sessions so there is no scarcity of excellent Cocteau's work out there so why do so many want bands to keep churning out albums in the familiar format? We should be thankful that Robin is still prepared to put his neck on the line when he knows that this album will be measured against his Cocteau's work and that Liz's absence will be pointed out as it has been here.

This is music is rather wonderful, comforting and uplifting. If you are a genuine Cocteau's fan you will love this and you should also get Songs To Help Mychildren Sleep Ep and Angel Falls Ep which are cut from the same cloth. I have them tacked on the end of Carousel on my iPod; the album and EPs work very well as a single piece and I strongly recommend them.
