5.0 out of 5 stars Quality collaboration, 8 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Other World (Audio CD)
Peter Hammill is my favourite artist not only because of his long history of high quality releases but also because of his refusal to stand still. These qualities are amply demonstrated on this collaboration with guitar whizz Gary Lucas; it's very good and sounds like nothing Hammill has done before. Some of the songs are relatively straightforward guitar and vocal tracks (for instance Spinning Coins, Of Kith and Kin, the Kid) while others feature Hammill's vocals backed by atmospheres and soundscapes (mostly created with guitars) that make the album title very appropriate indeed ( for example Reboot and Some Kind of Fracas). At times the ambient/dark or just plain weird sounds feel as if they could have come from a specialist electronic outfit, such as RMI. PH's voice, quite restrained in this outing, is as magnificent as ever. Five of the 14 tracks (one third of the album) is comprised of instrumental pieces in which Lucas shines. For those who prefer songs to instumentals that leaves 40 minutes to remind us that, at 65, Mr Hammill remains the best of the lot.
