Top Customer Reviews
I have played this album through numerous times and it goes into my list of albums that will be timeless which for me is an anagram of I will always come back to it instead of consigning it to the 'forgotten' pile.
This album is a beautiful mix of dance, experimental and ambient which form an almost panoramic soundscape.
Flightpath Tegel could be mistaken for a Tangerine Dream track - layered synths - rhythmic beats, whereas Violet Bloom is ambient and raw, almost experimental.
A Secret Life 7 has in my opinion a Boards of Canada feel to it, due to its length and basic approach. A Secret Life 2 takes it further into the depths with a haunting nine and a half minutes of musical bliss.
The album ends with Over the Mirage which always leaves me feelings of reflection and contemplation - perfect after a hard days work.
My only criticism about this album is when it ends and I have to play it all over again.
Don't expect Underpass or No-One Driving with this work - just beautiful music that will enlighten and transport you to another level. Sheer brilliance from start to finish - its a gem.
'Perfect blend of sound and vision. A brilliant idea perfectly captured by genius.' RECORD COLLECTOR
'A fine overview of Foxx's talents - from "quiet music" maestro to purveyor of pulsating synth noir.' FACT MAGAZINE
'D.N.A.'s instrumentals have that lovely half-heardness of the likes of Harold Budd or Roger Eno.' MOJO MAGAZINE
'The ambient pieces have an unavoidably Eno-esque quality to them: still melancholic but also involving a profound sense of peace, of drift, ebb and flow. In his moody electro songs Foxx spans both the conceptual and the infectiously melodic.' THE QUIETUS
"The album varies between shimmering Electronica and bold analogue-driven blip-Pop and elegant ambient works, of which the ghostly "Kaiyagura" - with its melancholy, reverb-drenched piano - is quite exquisite.' FUTURE MUSIC
