5.0 out of 5 stars Original and subliminaly disturbing..., 9 Mar 2006
This review is from: Geogaddi (Audio CD)
It's hard to define boards of Canada's music, because it changes so often. Now Geogaddi is a brilliant album, not just a collection of songs, but a subliminally disturbing work of art. It's hard to name one song as the best, because you can only get the real effect by listening to the whole thing. When most people hear the words "disturbing music" or "depressing music", they'll usually think of some gothic band or a band with lots of shouting and swearing, but this album has a hidden depth to it, and leaves you with a strange feeling. It starts off with some weird and quite catchy songs, but slowly gets darker, and then you hit "The Devil Is In The Details" which is where the album changes, it starts calming down, but also getting more confused, and sad, "dawn chorus" is quite intense, then "You Could Feel The Sky" slowly relaxes the album, but still maintains the spooky feel, and "Corsair" leaves you wondering what you thought of the album, you know you liked it but you feel sad. Basically, it's great, but you only hear the real weirdness after "I Saw Drones", up until then I CAN be kind of repetitive if you don't listen carefuly enough, either way it's all very suttle, but builds, if you arnet a fan of electronic/ambient music or your mind isn't open, I wouldn't buy this, because you'll be embarrassed to listen to it, but this isn't one of those boring albums made for the money, it's not a scramble through a hard drive of old songs to make a quick buck, it's truly original stuff and worth the money.
