This review is from: Jane 1-11 (Audio CD)
Harold Budd is an interesting artist. He must be a workaholic as there seems to be an endless number of recordings he seems to either produce by himself or in collaboration with other artists. What is particularly rewarding is that he never stops pushing forward in terms of what he records. Jane 1 - 11 is an excellent record but it's not always a restful experience and that's good. The opening track, Jane - 1 seems to be underpinned by a sense of unease and even 'urgency' as a repetitive beat pushes the occasional sweeps of sound along. Other tracks are beautiful and sometimes almost bordering on disappearing into an ethereal distance but there is still something that re-occurs every now and then that almost says 'the subject matter is not all light but there is some melancholic background here'. It's an atmospheric and occasions ambient piece of brilliance which also engages the listeners brain. It didn't take me to a place of total peace but it has got me utterly hooked and has reignited some memories of people and places I'd forgotten....

Long live Harold Budd. Never ever dull!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tao Budd-ism, 20 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Jane 1-11 (Audio CD)
I can think of no other artist working today - in any medium - who makes pure and astounding magic in the way that Harold Budd does. There are words that can hint at what this music does: cosmos, liminality, hypnagogia, metempsychosis, desert, futurism,
transcendence, notes. No adjectives.

Jane 1-11 is a lot of fun, so have a listen. Harold Budd is a genius.
