This review is from: Music For Real Airports (Audio CD)
I've seen reviews of IDM in the past and there's one thing that stands out: A lot of people seem to judge IDM by the complexity of the beats and the effects. IDM isn't meant to be an arena for audio-geeks to showcase their technical superiority. Like all music, it's a means of communicating a message. I find the album utterly enthralling, be it slower and less beat heavy than black dog's previous work. The album is a soundtrack to a journey, but consequently the album has become a journey of its own. A beautiful one at that, full of nuance and subtlety with a great dystopian undertone.
I loved Brian Eno's Music for Airports and this is a brilliant new envisioning of the concept.
