5.0 out of 5 stars Boards of Canada meets Ulrich Schnauss, 3 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Opalescent (Audio CD)
What a pleasant surprise it was to discover this fine budding artist.

The review title says it all, really: if you like either of those artists, you'll probably like Jon Hopkins. Specifically, the overlaying of guitar material with electronica echoes The Campfire Headphase, and the general harmonic feel (along with the pervasively dreamy mood) is very Schnauss, but at the same time, a distinctive voice peeps through the cracks.

I'll be following this man's output very closely in the coming years. In the meantime, you can start by buying this album if you haven't already.
