'The Last Days of Gravity' starts with an instrumental 'Happy Pills' that sets the scene as a good rolling introduction to the overall mood of the tracks on the CD. A certain groove based progressive dance music with electronica overtones. It is with 'All I want' that the album really starts to form a familiar but different parallel to other 'Younger Brother' or 'Shpongle' tracks. This track features vocalist 'Ruu' who breathes a subdued love ballad to heaven. This is one of many time displaced moments on the CD Simon Postford makes it all feel a whole lot longer than it's 9 minute running time as the track slowly builds. It starts developing a 'One of These Days' sound and has trappings of other Pink Floyd tracks but much more electronically processed.
Another track featuring 'Ruu' is more downtempo 'Ribbon on a Branch'.Read more ›
It may be different, but there's enough here to make those who loved 'Bleeps' feel right at home while they're getting used to the rest of it (particularly the first and last track). So it's a gradual progression into pastures new rather than a complete change and anyone that liked 'Bleeps' or anything Shpongle is going to find a lot to keep them playing the disc.
It's difficult music to classify, and it doesn't fit easily into any particular slot. If you like electronic music, Four-tet, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, even Eat Static or Eno, there are things from all of them that you'll recognise here, but it's still original and different. Well worth a try.
Yes, it's a good album, some very pretty sounds, beautifully produced but ultimately a bit...well...bland, quite honestly.
The beginning of the first track does sound remarkably like Brian Eno circa The Plateaux of Mirror, Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks era. The second track is probably my favourite with some lovely slide guitar, but still somehow reminiscent of Mr Eno. The rhythm of the second track is also very Jean Michel Jarre. So, taking these elements together makes for an interesting and occasionally tuneful track.
Then the album wanders on - gets quite funky in one place - 'I am a freak, I am unique', in others, yes, there are definitely shades of Pink Floyd, but none of the power and, in a sense, 'commitment' of Pink Floyd.
I've been listening to the album for a week or two now and really only 2 or 3 tracks stand out. As I said, it's beautifully produced, it's quite original in it's mixture of 'real' instruments and influences from Eno, Floyd and Jarre but there's nothing you're going to go away humming or singing to yourself.
Maybe four stars is a bit generous, but three would be mean. And I would be interested to hear a third album.
This is a very different album to the Flock of Bleeps album and does definitely remind me of Pink Floyd,, which is fine as I enjoy their sounds equally......wasn't keen to start off with but as I listened more I enjoyed it more and more. These guys are geniuses and great to see that they can come up with different sounds but still you know it's them.
All I Want - not sure what it reminds me of, is it Pink Floyd or someone else? My mind can't think right now ;-) Great track......more uptempo, Pink Floyd, yes......
Elephant Machine - love this track - more psychedelic sound as their previous sound - synth/ electronic sounds.......bassy, great track! One of my favourites definitely.
I am a Freak - again similar to original sounds of theirs....enjoy.
A great album - very different to their original alubm but definitely worth buying........expand the mind!
