4 stars Although Faust are, as advertised, providing the backing here, it's the sonorous droning of Tony Conrad's violin which is the big draw on Outside the Dream Syndicate. Imagine, perhaps, a response to Tangerine Dream's Zeit without electronic tampering or other tricks - just bizarre, otherworldly sounds being wrung out of Conrad's instrument. Recent editions add an expansive bonus disc, though I'd say the best material already made it to the final cut of the initial release. May be disappointing for those expecting something with the energy of Faust's own albums, but come in prepared and you'll find a curiously rewarding trip herein.
Warthur | 4/5 |
