2 stars This album is much too light for my tastes. I've never had much patience for ambient music. While this has a lot more substance than, say, any of Eno's ambient works, or Fripp's soundscapes, it still is little more than background music.

Most of this album is based on the repetition of a quiet synth or guitar riff, looped over and over, with little pieces of slow guitar solos played over it. At times, found sounds are dropped in over the music for added effect. This works best in "Consider Figure Three", with what sounds like pieces of a medical lecture spliced in, giving the song an eeriness the music alone does not provide. If you really like this cut, look for some of Negativland's work.

2.5 stars. There is a bit more for this to be just for collectors only, but I wouldn't quite calssify it as good.

Evolver | 2/5 |
