Review by Dobermensch
3 stars Isn't that cover awful? It looks like something I'd have painted with my left hand when ten years old.

I've never been a big fan of Rapoon. Despite owning 8 of their albums, I'm always annoyed at the fact that he left Zoviet France at their peak in the early nineties after releasing some of the best experimental music I own to this day. They're still my all time favourite musical artists.

Rapoon always sound a bit one dimensional. 'Tin of Drum' is a case in point. Some may think that they're listening to a lock groove segment of a vinyl recording. That's pretty much what it sounds like. Looped, repetitive ritualistic drums pitter-patter in the foreground as airy keyboards slowly drone and evolve in the background. At certain points 'Tin of Drum' sounds like a corrupted and faulty CD pressing.

He's also a plagiarist, where unless I'm much mistaken, parts of Coils' 'Nasa Arab' from 'Stolen and Contaminated' are pilfered wholesale and used to his own ends, looped and twisted over and over and over again.

The better parts are certainly the non percussion sections which are more emotionally involving and atmospheric. There's some spoken word vocal snippets lifted from unidentifiable sources which add a sense of mystery amongst their foggy surroundings.

Sometimes I spend too much time listening to the minutiae of albums like this. It starts to sound strange in my head; like when you look at your own hand for ages and see things you've never been aware of before, or ponder the spelling of your own name too long and it begins to seems weird and unreal. That's the feeling I get when listening to 'Tin of Drum'.

It's a very hypnotic and trance inducing album. Almost as though it's an organic machine without human involvement. Like strands of DNA multiplying.
