- Xerrox Vol. 2 by Alva Noto
10/10 Carpathian 2nd February 2009I've selected the 'ecstatic' option but this release made me feel many things. After Carsten Nicolai's outstanding back catalogue a second Xerrox volume had a lot to live up to but, if anything, this is possibly one of the the finest things he's done yet. Where Vol.1 had undercurrents of emotion under a strict frame this is much looser (well, as much as his work ever gets) and has a far wider colour palette to it. The ability to pull emotion from you is turned to 11 - it's a heady ride and you're unlikely to get through the album without involuntary reaction. At times there are noise builds and drops that made me think of Ben Frost's 'Theory Of Machines' album but Vol.2 remains a piece of work that could only have come from one man. A highlight, for me, of the last few years and pretty much a classic from day one. Glorious.
Just buy it and thank me later.
