just not up to the standard of aims previous releases
on 12 March 2002
i am a big fan of aim, particularly his early 12's and the album cold water music.
sadly, hinterland is, for me sorely lacking the elements that made his previous music so good. gone is the atmosphere of c.w.m. gone also is the big sound of his more up-beat hip-hop tunes such as loop dreams, and the simplicity and feeling of their brilliantly worked loops.
i feel that what we are left with lacks purpose, and seems to wander off, ending up sounding like a film score rather than a collection of separate tunes. not one of the tunes really stands out.
maybe this will be your thing, but for me hinterland is a real dissapointment.
