4.0 out of 5 stars A Sumptuous Feast for the Ears, 22 Jan 2008
This review is from: Takk... (Audio CD)
all in all a good album.

slight ambient qualities to it, rich, deep, textured whilst also having a typical composer slant to it too. electric guitars sit happily next to cellos in creating this sumptuous sound.

They have a wonderful production on the album - giving this rich accessible sound, full of unusual organic sounds and textures.

It moves from peaceful melody to full on Crescendo with ease and is a very well crafted peiece of music.

in particular you will recognise the 3rd track Hippipolk from adverts on the telly and Gosoli is wonderous too.

Has anyone else noticed how Gosoli bears a resemblance to Nine Inch Nails 'hurt'??? the way it slowly builds up, the backing beats and gentle addition of instruments?

If you liked the way NIN's 'downward spiral' was recorded - ie with a very close 'intense' sound - hearing every little trinket or garbled note, a music where you can put your headphones in an immerse yourself into it - then you will enjoy this.

I wont go on like other reviewers about 'crying' and 'feeling my soul swell up' - but this music in places is wonderous and definately deserves a listen.

there are no vocals as such and no conventional songs - so please be warned if you are not into something a bit different.
