4.0 out of 5 stars
very different, 16 Dec. 2003
Firstly, this is a CD which will definitely (and unfortunately) not be to everybody's taste. However, the fact that you have stumbled across it might make it appropriate for you. It's certainly very unique, and also very interesting. I have not yet received Polmo Polpo's previous release, 'The Science Of Breath', so I cannot make comparisons to it, however 'Like Hearts Swelling' certainly has a surprisingly positive 'vibe' to it (most noticeable on tracks 2 and 4). As with most Constellation releases, this is definitely not 'background' music... it's more, music to get taken away by while listening through good headphones. Definitely not 'mind-blowing', more, intriguing as to where the music is going to go next. Very creative. I have given 4 stars opposed to 5 because of it's price in relation to the quantity (a quarter short of an hour). It deserves 5 out of 5 for quality, however!
