Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Strangely Isolated Place [Us Import] (Audio CD)
If you like and remember The Cocteau Twins' more atmospheric outings, Brian Eno's sublime "Apollo" (and Roger Eno's "Voices") and albums by Dead Can Dance and This Mortal Coil, you'll have a small inkling of the musical treasures on this CD...
The music here is highly addictive, the deceptively simple soundscapes rolling around one's head for hours afterwards. Please believe me, the sound samples presented above don't even begin to do the music justice! You've just got to buy this disc, kick back and let it wash over (and into) you.
The production could have been better though. Lots of compression (and subsequent distortion) in parts of the mix spoil headphone listening, although the sublime music won through in the end...
I really recommend this CD. It's far more than *just* chillout music, since it really does get into you. I'm really glad I bought it; so much so I've ordered the previous album......
P.S. April '07 - Some months have passed since I first bought these discs and I wanted to add that they don't stray very far from my CD player... They take repeated listening very well indeed!
