the music of dreams...,
This review is from: Selected Ambient Works 1985 (Audio CD)
Richard D James' first album is one of his finest. This is a collection of material he composed from 1985 to 1992. For someone who was only 15 when some of these tracks were composed it shows incredible vision. 'Tha' is a pulsating dreamlike peice which lasts nine minutes. Ageispolis is drenched in beautiful almost liquid scapes.
This is classic RDJ (Richard D James) material but personally I feel it doesn't show the variety of an album like Druqks. This is a good starting point for anyone who is not familliar with RDJ's work. Albums such 'Ambient works volume 2' are much harder to listen to. I also highly recomend 'The Richard D James Album' as a starting point.
