Patience is a virtue,
This review is from: Clouddead (Audio CD)
I originally heard Clouddead on a Big Dada sampler (also highly recommended), and bought this album based on the strength of one track. My initial reaction was confusion! Each of the tracks on here are more abstract collages rather than traditional songs, made up of segments of loops and samples, and this disjointed layout is really hard to get your head round.
However, something about the whole album made me feel quite unnerved which made me perservere, and thank god I did. Peel back the bizarre malais of blender samples, broken beats and minimal sounscape interludes and you will find a thing of beauty. Half the time I still can't understand what the hell Nosdam et al are rambling about, but the general feel suggests their very lives and sanity depend on it.
Given time with this album you will grow to love, nuture and cherish it as if it were your own. It has become a part of my being and for that I can only thank them!
