Review by colorofmoney91
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars More iciness, but more epic.

The White Arcades follows the path of coldness established on Lovely Thunder created by shimmering synth textures and airy atmosphere, but here the album's individual pieces work together to create a coherent wordless storyline, almost like a tone poem. Compared to the previous album, the lonely minimalist piano is featured more here and creates an organic center for the arctic ambient sounds to focus around.

Needless to say, this album quite high in the category of beauty, which is a usual for Harold Budd. All of the tracks are short-form this time around, maintaining the same compositionally minimalist yet atmospherically dense keys-et-synth style that is familiar to this artist. Unfortunately, while it is beautiful and follows a previously well-used formula, The White Arcades sounds far too close to a rehashing of past ideas. Its a shame that this has to be the case because, as per my tastes, this album has everything that makes an album lovable for me: icy atmosphere, cold textural synth washes, wintery glockenspiel effects, and subtly alternating airy drones that provide a canvas. It's all quite picturesque even, like waking up one morning to discover the ground covered in a thick blanket of snow and icicles hanging from the roofs of the buildings, and the constant progression of the album as a whole can generate an imaginary exploration through this blissful winter wonderland that lay before ye -- but it just doesn't seem fresh.

Regardless, though, of this being a slightly altered and reworked rehash of Lovely Thunder, there are a few standout tracks. The winter wonderland type of soundscape that I've described is most easily imagined during relatively upbeat tempo and cheerful yet icy glockenspiel effects of "The Real Dream of Sails", which is a great contrast to the lost-in- the-woods sounds of "Algebra of Darkness". "The Kiss" is smooth, romantic, sensual, piano-based composition that is produced to sound close to the infamous ECM jazz piano sound and is a great closer track and the perfect way to end an album like this.

While I do believe this album to be too similar to the wonderful Lovely Thunder, despite the various changes in sound, I'd still say this is a great album and most people into Harold Budd's sound will enjoy this based solely on the familiarity and fans of generally cold atmospheric music should also find enjoyment here. Compared to Lovely Thunder, which I'd describe as being more grey and dark, The White Arcades is more of a pure white.
