5.0 out of 5 stars Glassy wall of sound, 31 Mar 2009

This review is from: An Imaginary Country (Audio CD)
Straddling the divide between to best of ambient and classical minimalism, listening to Tim Hecker's music is a visceral, physical experience. Great slabs of electronically-generated sound rub up against one another, repeating simple motifs and drones, creating chilling, glacial harmony. Dark, invigorating and hypnotic, the listener is transfixed by the simple genius of Hecker and his bleak electronic soundscapes - this prodigiously gifted composer is the missing link between (early) Brian Eno and the godlike genius of Philip Glass, and is himself a force to be reckoned with, the leader in his field, his music trascending genre and easy categorisation. A must for Hecker fans, and the perfect intro to his sonically-charged world, listen and be awed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 7 Mar 2013

This review is from: An Imaginary Country (Audio CD)
Tim Hecker is truly one of the most original and perplexing artists there is right now, his imagination knows no bounds. In this offering he takes us on a journey back through space and time, to when it all began. The album is a circular experience through a free-flowing, organic soundscape with an undercurrent of pulsating white noise that threatens to break out.
It has a more accomplished feel than 'Harmony in Ultraviolet' which I found more fragmented and with the volume turned up a lot higher, unlistenable in parts. The effect here is more harmonious and sublime, an experience that transcends reality as you are transported back to another place and moment in time. A place you have to keep returning to. It is that good.
