From the arctic to the countryside,
This review is from: Cirque (Audio CD)
It's what you've come to expect from Biosphere. A beautifully packaged album with stunning photography, and oh yeah, a brilliant album full of gentle, ambient music.
'Cirque' shows a shift from its predecessor 'Substrata'. Rather than the arctic setting, 'Cirque' evokes a sense of the countryside and of a warmer, more moderate climate. I suppose title tracks like 'Ibiza' give it away really! But don't worry there's not a pounding 4/4 beat or cheesy trance rhythm in sight. This is Biosphere remember!
Starting off with the best track on the album in my opinion, 'Nook and Cranny' is just a great track to sit back and listen to. The rolling bass and undercurrents of electronic blips and beeps will take you far away. Elsewhere on the album, 'Don't follow' is another standout track.
But don't take my word for it, listen to it for yourself. If you're not one of those thousands of Biosphere fans, then you'd better ask yourself why!
