Too long? Not long enough!,
This review is from: Selected Ambient Works Volume II (Audio CD)
Two discs isn't enough for me. Although I suppose it'll have to do.
Some parts (CD1 track 3, CD2 track 8) are so beautiful they nearly bring me to tears every time, other parts are horrifyingly scary (CD1 track 5 [UK edition only], CD2 track 4), but the majority are sinister and kind of quirky (CD1 track 2, CD2 track 6). No track titles could do these pieces of music justice, and so none are given.
This isn't music to sit and bop your head to or hum along with...instead, sit back, put it on in the background, listen through headphones in the dark, take it on your discman for a walk in the country on a gloomy December morning. The choice is yours...and when you get it right, you'll realise how fantastic this album is.
One of my alltime favourites.
