Product Description

Review

It results in an intimate album shuddering in the blast of an icy onslaught of crisp, wintery piano. --Mojo

These 11 tracks, recorded at various locations, also confirm he's more than a neo-classical specialist --Uncut

Even when battering his piano strings with a toilet brush, Frahm creates something mesmerising --Observer

Thank you Steven Wilson for introducing me to Nils Frahm. This album is a gorgeous blend of classical piano driven melodies with modern synthesizer twist. A few songs lean towards what would be considered electronic music ('Says' in particular), but the majority here consist of solo piano melodies. Thankfully there are no glitchy sounds or beats of this album and the electronics compliment the music perfectly. Nils Frahm gets round the problem of playing solo by utilizing loops to build magnificent song structures, and where percussion is needed, he simply bangs the piano.

I now own several of his other albums, but this (alongside the more organic and folky 'Wintermusik') remain my favourite. While it is technically a live album (and you can hear the audience cheer at the end of each song), there are many pieces of music exclusive to this release. Live versions of songs from 'Felt' (another great release) actually sound superior in my opinion and the sound quality is superb. I hope this music does not get dismissed as purely 'new age' or 'neoclassical', because the music is really quite accessible for an audience far outside either genres. I believe fans of post and progressive rock and ambient-electronica will find much to like here.

To me, it was purely fortuitous to discover Nils Frahm as I was browsing through youtube. I then decided to search via allmusic and realized how good this LP was considered, so after listening to some excerpts, I decided to purchase the CD. From the first listening to the 10th or so in about a couple of weeks, I must say this is a purely musical masterpiece. This compilation of what may be considered as the best 'live' moments of the artists, is absolutely thrilling. Some tunes are just as touching as they are inspired. Others are mainly recongnisable by the skills of the artist ('Hammers'). The collection and variety of sounds is also remarkable in this CD. From beginning to end, a joy of a listen.

Bought this after hearing "Says" on BBC 6 Music. While that is the most instantly likeable, stand out track the rest feels like stuff that I will grow to love as I hear it more. Delighted with it.

This is one of my favorite albums of the last 12 months. Nils Frahm creates the most fantastic sound scapes; the energy changes with each track. I've even given this album as a present to a very picky music lover!

The beauty and passion for minimal and new music is not only hearable but almost touchable on this record. It's independent form the mainstream but als part of a tradition. It let me associate with the Köln concert of Keith Jarrett.

Purchased after hearing played in Fopp Tufton Street, on the basis of which I got four of his albums. Brilliant evocation of early Tangerine Dream, ambient Adams, ECM jazz and Nymanesque soundtracks, but insistently itself. This album will not permit itself to be background music.

Love the album. Very refreshing to see this sort of music being in vogue. I just wish he would do more in the studio (personal taste by I don't like hearing the audience shuffling and coughing on my recordings)

The best to date of Nils Frahm. Almost 80' of varied pianism, ranging from quiet, quasi-classical pieces to full-on fierce, hammered rhythmic attack, short pieces, extended pieces. A record fully representing his compositional and improvising genius, sui-generis. A record full to bursting with great music.
