This review is from: Pause (Audio CD)
For a side project, 'Pause' certainly takes some beating. Kieran Hebden here melds programmed beats with flashes of guitar and harp to create a genre almost entirely of his own, and it's to his immense credit that, despite inventing a formula and sticking to it, 'Pause' never bores over its lush and expansive 43 minutes. Probably its best-known track - the mantra-like 'No More Mosquitos' - is also arguably the weakest, which says something for the high-water mark that Hebden sets himself on this record. An album that demands to be listened to a whole, and then again, and again - 'Pause' is nothing short of wondrous.
