This review is from: Tarot Sport (Audio CD)
This Bristol duo of Andrew Hung and Benjamin Power, with the help of the famous producer Andrew Weatherall, created one amazing record. If you give your full attention, one hour of your time to "Tarot Sport", and listen to it undestructed, the chance is, it will blow your socks off.
There are seven tracks on this album, all of them surprising and joyous. There is this amazing opening track, "Surf Solar", which is over 10 minutes, but 10 glorious minutes, slowly building up only to shoot in array of musical extravaganza. There is "The Lisbon Maru" (my favourite?) which comes in waves and layers and sweeps you off you feet. There is the mammoth of the track, "Olympians", which is as ambitious and monumental as it is gratifying.
You know what, I love this album, it's absolutely fantastic for the sleepless night and/or a long road trip. I wish there were more albums like that. So positive.
