Bark Psychosis - Hex,
This review is from: Hex (Audio CD)
I have better albums in my collection but ever since I bought this particular one it's barely been off my iTunes.
Its dark ambient textures and pulsing rhythms lend it a vaguely hypnotic feeling (see 'Big Shot' especially) that works well in the background while you're doing other things. But really it's active listening that gives the biggest payback. Otherwise you'd be missing the soaring strings of 'The Loom,' the chiming crescendo of 'Absent Friend' and the gorgeous horns of 'Eyes & Smiles' to name but a few of the incredible moments littered across this album.
Aside from some over-indulgent passages this is one of the most remarkable albums of the 90's. Just a shame that it's so hard to get hold of.
