Prog Reviewer
4 stars Ulver had become more settled into their new electronic post-rock direction on this album, which combines ethereal jazz and electronic influences to create - as the subtitle suggests - a film noir soundtrack to a movie you are invited to imagine for yourself. It's like late-period Talk Talk got together with Mogwai to come up with a tribute album to Vangelis' Blade Runner soundtrack, and whilst that combination might be surprising, it works remarkably effectively. With the band's previous extreme metal influences more or less vanished at this point, Perdition City is the ideal starting point to explore the latter half of the band's discography, and is a great improvement on the rather messy William Blake album which preceded it.
Warthur | 4/5 |
