Prog Reviewer
4 stars Definitively moving out of the shadow of Robert Fripp, Heldon IV: Agneta Nilsson is a confident electronic album which arguably qualifies as one of the first works of dark ambient or ambient industrial music. The sinister, proto-cyberpunk sounds of the Perspective series in particular explores a range of dark, brooding sounds arising mainly from synthesisers before the closing Perspective IV, which brings drums and guitar back to a place of prominence in the band's music. Sleek, dangerous, and disturbing, this album is both more original and more influential than any of Heldon's preceding albums. Don't put it on when you want something sunny or comforting, but if you're in a mood for a sound reminiscent of a spookier Klaus Schulze then Heldon IV is what you want.
Warthur | 4/5 |
