5.0 out of 5 stars Simply an Astounding Achievement, 9 July 2003
This review is from: Opalescent (Audio CD)
This album was bought on an annoyingly enthusiastic recommendation from a mate so, as you can imagine, my expectations were both very high and negative - not the best combination when listening to an album for the first time.
However, I have to admit 'Opalescent' is a remarkable album which show maturity that should be far beyond the youth of Jon Hopkins. Despite its 'chill out' label, the album is actually far more musical than one has any right to expect, and in this way retains an originality that bands such as zero 7 and groove armada can only hope for.
It is a laid back and relaxing record - but this does not do it justice for it's subtle complexities demand listening rather than just hearing - and thus 'opalescent' is far more than simply 'background music'.
In fact, this stands up against any ambient or 'chill out' (or whatever you want to call it) record in the last decade - and can conceivably be held to come out on top!! An awesome listening experience.

Great album. Just wanted to mention Ask Me No Questions by Bridget St John, an old classic, just in case you - or anyone else - is not familiar with it.
