Format: Audio CD
This CD is contains some of the lushest soundscapes ever created. I've read elsewhere that it is refreshing to hear some electronic music that isn't so pretentious to render itself unlistenable, and I think that is true. What Nathan Fake has done here is fashion an album that draws from several of it's peers (Lemon Jelly, Boards of Canada et al) and actually moves the game forward.

The beats that often form the backbone of the tracks are quite hip-hop in their orientation (see highlight 'The Sky Was Pink' for what I mean) and this actually juxtaposes really well with the synth noodlings swirling around them. Somehow the melodies always swing back into place neatly, after seeming to disappear off into the sonic ether. There is also quite a lot of variety in amongst the fluffiness and hints of Bjork ('Fell'), Vitalic ('Grandfathered') and Aphex Twin (bits and blobs throughout) and this holds your attention well.

At various points during this album I am reminded of children's cartoon music, or early Amiga/C64 game music, and I think it's to Fake's credit that this manages to not grate or seem like a novelty. It also manages to bridge the gap successfully between mellow and upbeat, as at home soundtracking a Saturday night out as a Sunday afternoon in.

The definite highlight to this record is the slow fade up and lolloping beat of 'The Sky Was Pink'. It is somewhat disappointing that there are not more tracks that stand out like this, and whereas other tracks like 'Bumblechord' and 'Long Sunny' are fine and dandy, they do tend to merge into the overall scheme of things. Luckily for Fake, and us the listeners, the scheme is a good one.

This definitely matches up to my favourite electronic album of last year, Boards of Canada's excellent 'Campfire Headphase', and hence fully deserves a four-star rating.

This really is a superb album. It was eagerly anticipated having heard a couple of tracks and it has not disappointed.

There is so much in it with hints and flavors of many great things: ethereal noodlings, heavy percussive moments and twinkly electronic glitches. Individual components often sound familiar but as a collection the album is downright refreshing.

My only fear is that within a matter of weeks/months, bits of this album, particularly the opening track 'Stops', will become the soundtrack to many a telecommunications commercial - mark my words!

I was eagerly awaiting the release of this album, and it proved even better than my expectations.

Right now James Holden's Border Community label can do no wrong and this album has only strengthened that reputation.

Its refreshing to hear an electronica album written around melodies and soundscapes rather than technology and complex sampling.

Surprisingly it also transfers seemlessly to the dancefloor, definatley worth buying and hearing live if you can.

I chanced upon catching Nathan Fake perform live with Vincent Oliver on visuals at the National Film Theatre in London a couple of weeks back and was blown away by their performance.

They were kind of a support act for the "superior" I:Cube who performed afterwards, and the simple and non-pretentious style of Fake's music and Oliver's visuals shone through as a beacon of wank-free electronica, something I really appreciate in this genre.

Back to the album, this CD represents all that is good in nostalgic (Boards of Canada-like), rocky (My Bloody Valentine-like), boppy (Lemon Jelly-like) electronica. Great stuff!
