Prog Reviewer
4 stars Hathor is experimental, ritualistic, enigmatic progressive electronic album by electro- avant-gardist Igor Wakhevitch. Compared to Wakhevitch's previous release, this album is much calmer. The music on Hathor is much more about atmosphere than bizarre experimentation with symphonic and krautrock psychedelia touches. These tracks follow in the ambient, drone, and buzz classes of electronic music, but also features dramatic spoken word passages in French, choir singing, disembodied demonic voices, and strong and demanding electronic pulses.

For anyone looking for a less avant-garde introduction to Igor Wakhevitch's music, this is probably the best bet. But this and Docteur Faust make up the essential Wakhevitch. Though I don't enjoy this albums calmness over Docteur Faust's confusing collage of experimental electronic-symphonic sounds, Hathor serves as a much tamer album for relaxing and meditating in an atmosphere of darkness and uncertainty. Highly recommended.
