4.0 out of 5 stars future sound of America, 1 Oct 2012
This review is from: Until The Quiet Comes (Audio CD)
AAAAHHHHH!!! i've just annoyingly deleted a relatively indepth, four paragraph review of this LP by accidentally restarting my computer a minute ago. This has forced me to be way more laconic than i usually am here, which may turn out to be a blessing in disguise as i do have a tendancy to go on a bit with these things ... Anyways on to the album. FlyLo ambitiously stitches together a diverse array of musical styles on Until The Quiet Comes to produce a mesmeric lattice-work of psychedelic wonderment; with winding basslines, stuttering drum beats, bright keyboards and pitch shifted vocals featuring heavily throughout this albums duration. Although that might sound like an unpenetrable and potentially alienating concoction on paper, Mr Ellison's consumate compositional skills bring all these disparate elements together, by filtering them through his unique lens of jazzy electronica much like he did on his previous opus "Cosmogramma". "UTQC" is an all together more apporachable work than it's predecessor though, with FlyLo choosing to create a lush soundscape of mind altering mood pieces with the aforementioned elements, rather than densely packing everything together to produce something as abstract and otherwordly as "Cosmogramma". Fans of electronic music in general should find plenty on "UTQC" to drool over, but those of you who have a penchant particularly for Amon Tobin's brand of Jazz infused breakbeat and/or Matthew Herbert's soulful microhouse will be especially taken by this albums three dimensional fusion of experimental jazz and multifarious electronica.

Thankyou(Fankyoo? I'm not entirely sure I want people to think that I might want to be associated with that sort of word, but anyway,) for that review. It told me that I may want to buy this CD in a way that I found to be informative and also enjoyable to read.

Glad I could be of help Ubik and thanks for leaving a comment. I actually thought my review might come accross as too terse but considering the fact that most people seem to be finding it helpful, maybe i'll keep all my reviews a little shorter from now on ;)
