- The Versailles Sessions by Murcof
10/10 Richard Pievaitis 16th December 2008
hi there ,my first review here on Norman records,having done many on Amazon,i noticed that no one had said how wonderful this latest album by Murcof is.
i have all the other albums and with each there has been a definite line of obvious progression .from the very linear minimalist bleeps,clicks and elements of piano on the first album to this full blown commission for the versailles garden fountain.
i bet listening to this "in situ" with the actual fountain working, on a moonlit night, would be quite incredible.
down to the music ,well this is actually very musical in nature.this does have a few of the trademark "bleeps and clicks" BUT the use of real baroque instrumentation with female soprano voice is wonderful
.imho this works best on track 3 which is quite pagan and organic and best when played loud.
if you like bass communion or vidna obmana then this is for you,this album is not quite as dark as the last 2 albums but THAT IS NOT A BAD THING.
in fact ,out of all of the murco releases this is my favourite,currently,but this does change on a weekly basis ,i suppose it depends on the mood you are in.
as an actual composition this is very strong on the musicality.MY SUGGESTION - buy it and see !
