I once played this record to my 80-year old grandma, intrigued by what she might think. She said it was beautiful, that it reminded her of the northern lights, and did other people I know listen to music like this? At the time, I had to admit (with some disappointment) that no, they didn't. Since then I've pressed Tim Hecker on quite a few of my friends, playing them albums, particularly this one, and slipping tracks onto mix CDs. Without fail they ask about it, and it's hard not to see why. This is certainly STRANGE music (but don't let that put you off). 'Haunt Me Haunt Me Do It Again' is a dreamy and confusing album - so much so that a Cocteau Twins-esque pop sample during 'untitled (3)' sounds positively meaty. Yet Hecker is equally unafraid to use noise, though carefully tempered with ambient drones, resulting in sounds not unlike a radio trapped between stations late at night. The album's fizzing and humming manages to produce both feelings of grandeur and sprawling wastelands, sometimes sounding like a warped, more sinister, combination of Oval and Boards of Canada. I've been listening to this record for eight months, and each time it throws up new quirks and intricacies. It's an album to savour, certainly a recommended purchase.

I bought this album after falling in love with Tim's newest album 'Harmony In Ultraviolet'. Sometimes dipping into an artist's back catalogue can be a risky business as you never quite know what to expect, especially when the album in question is 6 years older than the newest record. But there's absolutely no doubt that buying this album was a risk worth taking.

Tim's newest work is thick with layer upon layer of mutated digital sounds, to simply call it 'ambient' does an injustice to the depth and variety of the sonic palette utilized. Listening to Tim Hecker is by no means easy and at times is utterly bewildering..but then as the layers unfold themselves and reveal the true heart of the music you can't help but get sucked in. You could say that the rewards vastly outweigh any initial suffering as each listen yields something new.

While 'Haunt Me..' is still a confusingly complex album it's a lot more straightforward than the newest record and takes a lot less time to understand. Every piece is laced with melodies and atmosphere aplenty making it a much more conventional ambient listening experience but no less intricate or involving. This is timeless, beautiful music that manages to be both personal and intimate whilst also being cinematic in scope. Listening to this album is like stepping out onto an alien landscape such is it's sprawling otherworldliness.

I can't recommend this album enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent 14 Oct. 2004
By The Almighty Sommy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Much to the chagrin of the reviewer below me, I'm going to refer to Tim Hecker's ambient leanings (he has several house albums out under the name "Jetone") as "ambient glitch." Though I feel genre classifications are typically restrictive and under-descriptive (or even misleading in their descriptions), Haunt Me, Haunt Me, Do It clearly and successfully fuses droning melody and cathedral-like ambience with elements of electronic glitch, creating a hybrid quite unlike either ambient or glitch.

Tim Hecker soothes the listener through choice, dark tonal pallettes, but jars him or her through seemingly random interjections of electronic interferece -- Certain passages lend themselves more to one or the other. The result is heightened tension through the latter, but a more welcoming sense of harmony through contrast in the former. That Tim Hecker is a graduate student in psychoacoustics is very apparent, and lends itself to his unique style of ambient. Highly recommended.

Be sure to check out Radio Amor, a much brighter offering, as well as his new record, Mirages, which presents much more white noise in place of droning than his other discs.

5.0 out of 5 stars ..just buy it kids.. 11 Aug. 2004
By P. Rantzau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
so much of this so called & mis-categorised "glitch" (& i shudder as i write the word..) music is simply not very good at all..but this is wonderful..emotive, late night electronics to soften the hardest heart ..think Fennesz at his deepest & saddest, some of Jim O'Rourke's stuff..the perfect understated melody of Night Flight to Your Heart is worth the price of admission alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eminently Listenable 7 Oct. 2005
By Jock Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many potential buyers of this album might be familiar with contemporary composition. Those in that category should purchase immediately without reserve. For the many more who might be hesitant but curious, you should give this a listen. Like the Brockett Hudson, Hecker captures the feeling of 21st century life through stripped down but powerful instrumentation thoughtfully drawn from a strong minimalist framework. It may sound bizarre, but it is somehow beautiful. As a convert from the latter category, I can say with confidence that you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars brooding, slightly menacing and still very relaxing 7 Jan. 2008
By J. Street - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The background wall of sound here, pulsing and a bit fuzzy, sets the tone for intermittent beeps, piano tinkles and guitar samples. I love the feeling of rising and falling, of being lofted along wherever Tim Hecker wants to take me.
4.0 out of 5 stars Understated and Exciting!! 5 Oct. 2010
By R. G. Villalobos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tim Hecker is building bridges with this album. He borrows from minimalism, new age, and electronic glitch to sculpt a lovely atmospheric experience that remains sentimental (but not syrupy) while lightly dragging around the scraps of sound that are associated with "glitch" music. Glitch is characterized by the traditionally unwanted or undesirable artifacts that can occur when making electronic music. Embracing these media errors in the context of music is sometimes magical. The roster of musicians who use these types of sound is getting longer everyday and much of what is being produced in the genre is proving to be unremarkable.

Hecker can't easily be placed into a genre except perhaps "electronic." That's a large and unspecific classification today but it is perhaps best not to try being too specific when describing his work. This album is conspicuously free of beats and rhythms. His sounds are lofty and changes are sparse. We aren't left on the ground level listening to this album, he takes us to the top floor and shows us the view from above. It's somber at the top. This music is sincere even though it's quiet and full of secrets. I recommend buying it, there aren't many artists like him. He's skilled and somewhat visionary. It will add color and texture to many of your quiet nights.
