4.0 out of 5 stars Minimalism? Its just good music, 20 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Hanging Gardens (Audio CD)
I saw the Necks in concert at a club in Leeds recently and this album sort of sums up the kind of experience you have when you listen to them. The music ebbs and flows and kind of goes out of your awareness from time to time but these guys are looking for small rewards in their audience. This is just good music which does not make a pretence to be political or revolutionary. It just is. The fact that this album is just one long track may make some think of prog rock or exprimental music or Tangerine Dream or whoever but it really is unlike all those things. Its jazz but played in an unassuming way - its not self referential or showing off. I think these guys are just trying to play at this moment in time and saying to the listener - if you like this appreciate it if not, then not.
This music is a good reflection of what's missing from the mainstream at the moment. Just people in love with the idea of playing and wanting others to enjoy that. Very much recommended.
