4 stars An extraordinary album from Djam Karet. Very different from their usual rocking style so approach with care. It is entirely ambient: no rhythm, no vocals, next to no melody; only slowly evolving sounds and chords.

For a reason that I don't remember, this was the first Djam Karet album that I checked out and somehow it immediately clicked, which makes me kind of a dissident here. Even this band's rare fans do not seem to like it.

And normally this wouldn't be my cup or tea neither. I'm not a fan of Eno's and Fripp's similar excursions but here it works just fine for me. It's hard to say why. I just think that the atmosphere they create here is very powerful and entrancing. But hey, I got to know it during one of my Schulze phases. Maybe that's why it sounded so exciting :)

With this kind of music you can't argue over compositions or songs. They are simply not there. Instead this is something that will either captivate you or not. There's no predicting how you will react to it. If you are a Djam Karet fan or into the instrumental side of ambient rock (Noman, Nosound, Sigur Ros), or a post rock lover you should give this a shot though.
