I've not long heard of Jim O'Rourke, the man first came to my attention upon the soundtrack to 'LOVE LIZA'. But ever since I've become one of the man's biggest fans.
When I got this album I couldn't stop listening to it for weeks, it seemed so beautiful and so intimate. I listened to it as I walked through parks, as I sat on buses, as I lay in the bath. I took it everywhere with me and told eveyone willing to listen about him.
Normally I'm into angry fast music, my favourite band are the Clash, and I'm a massive Wire and Gang of four fan, so soft, sensual and intimate, aren't usually what I look for in music. But Jim O'Rourke has the power to convert, with an overwhelming sense of quality and brilliance to his music that can't be overlooked, not even if you're an avid dancehall fan.
He's just been made an honourary member of Sonic Youth for God's sakes! What more needs saying.
Buy this album if you have any taste, if you've even heard of him in the first place you're bound to be a person who's a little more switched on then all the Dido and Norah Jones fans of the world, and the kinda person who's gonna be looking for quality music. This is of the highest quality.
