5.0 out of 5 stars Come on in, take a seat... 30 Aug 2005
By Tarka
Format:Audio CD
If you had been walking past the Chill stage one evening at last year's Big Chill festival, you would have heard the sounds of Bruce Bickerton filling the valley with swelling chords, pulsing beats and dreamy vocals. You would also have noticed the huge crowd who had gathered to hear him; all of who were entranced, held captive in the gentle and evocative world of alucidnation.
To the unitiated, alucidnation's debut album on Big Chill Recordings will live up to its title. Bickerton's sound is so particular, that to spend any time at all with it is to enter and submit to an induction process, but a gentle one - without queues, waiting rooms or forms to fill. The experience begins with the album as object, beautifully packaged and designed with original photography by Bickerton himself: snaps of friends, campervans, roads and views. Before you know it, you're inducted...
First track 'The Secret Life' immediately introduces the listener to Bruce's unique vocal sound: a fresh and often fragile falsetto multitracked and layered with subtle delays and reverbs. The voice is often used to add texture to the music as with 'Beautiful House' and 'Blue', with sparse but emotive lyrics acting as a mood enhancer for the lovely electronic soundscapes beneath. Later in the album, the voice is that of a narrator: at times humorous (the excellent 'I'm not Bad'), but often taking the role of observer, offering advice ('Messing About') or gently chiding, but all delivered with a wry honesty and conversational tone that is deceptively wise and involving.

Only one other review here! What! A genuinely lovely album and a corker to listen to lying in the sunshine with your headphones on. The album takes a little listening to and you need some quiet time to take it in but once you have listened to it a few times its a beautiful album and without a doubt one of my favourite slo-mo albums I have, if not the best. Very unlike any album I own.....I'd stongly recommend....a cracking purchase and ten brownie points to Alucidnation.
