5.0 out of 5 stars I hate giving five stars, but..., 3 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Codename: Dustsucker (Audio CD)
Codename: Dustsucker deserves every last star. Put together over 5 years by Graham Sutton and a school of musicians and friends as they passed through his studio in London, C:DS demonstrates meticulous attention to sonic detail and a passion for overwhelming surges of noise. It's clearly constructed by the same person responsible for driving the band who made Hex, but ten years (and a drum n bass career as Boymerang) have passed since that landmark album, and where Hex was often stark and empty, C:DS is lush and warm (but still somehow stark and empty). Obviously less the work of a coherant 'band' than the previous material by Bark Psychosis, it is both a continuation and an alteration of what the band were doing between 1988 and 1994. As for what it sounds like... Well, imagine Talk Talk's Spirit Of Eden filtered through the last decade of dance music and avant-guitar noise and then transposed onto the crepuscular metropolis that is night-time London and you'll be getting there. One of the most remarkable albums, not just of this year, but of any year.
