a blissful ambient journey of sonic manipulation madness,

This review is from: Are You Shpongled (Audio CD)
Simon Posford is one of the all time electronic artist greats. From his early releases such as LSD and Twisted his production has been a benchmark for other people in the field to strive towards. Further releases such as the Lone Deranger have cemented his position in the Psy Trance hall of fame, but it was this album, produced with Tip boss Raja Ram that completed the circle. Previous escapades in to the ambient with aliases such as Celtic Cross gave an insight into what he was capable of, but it was through sphongle that any questions of genius were put to rest. Employing live instrumentation such as the divine flute of Raja Ram and an infinite amount of imagination, this album is quite simply one of the most interesting, varied, beautiful, and vivid albums ever released. And the sequel "Tales of the Inexpressible" continues where this left off, swimming in a sea of sphongle, hoping that the horizon is still a long way off. A masterpiece. Cabbage!
