9/10 Brian Staff review, 30 October 2008
Johann Johannsson. Well if ever a man was to forget his own name, this chap would only have to remember half of it to re-assemble his whole being. He's on 4AD with this album 'Fordlandia' and i'm rather taken aback by this Icelanders' modern classical/ambient sound galaxy. With a nostalgic look at presumably the days of the Ford phenomenon and technology in it's fascinating infancy, this is a deeply profound "soundtrack" brimming with hefty waves of sombre strings, heartbreaking piano and sad eyed electronic flourishes, embellished with pipe organ, clarinet & allsorts of orchestral delights sourced from around Europe's darker recesses. It's an album of high drama & serious gravity, incredibly moving; in places almost funereally sorrowful; but for those let down by the relative briefness of the last Max Richter album and it's fluttering vignettes, this haunting, beefy opus of a concept album should fill in those melancholic mood gaps in your life. Lovely work!
