9/10 Brian Staff review, 26 March 2009
Ha i've managed to locate the volume for my next audio treat. This one needs playing loud as it's by the prodigous Tim Hecker, one of my fave Kranky stars. I don't know quite how this man manages to construct such emotive, gleaming soundscapes, his warm banks of astral searching synths chatter away whilst pulsating waves of drone form a soothing sound base underneath. His compositions I find incredibly life affirming. For instance, 'Sea of Pulses' has these church organ like chords, a looming bassline & all manner of hazy keys wallowing all over the place to create a rich, indulgent sound. The brief 'Pond Life' has an angry, mangled & distorted spirit before apparently being comforted by those blissed waves, the fearful melee literally fading away, the pain subsiding. 'Paragon Point' is euphoric, chamber-like ambience that has beautiful hushed soft chords dallying with a disembodied drifting flow of subtle noise that is quite arresting. It's hard to pick key points from such a majestic sound sculpture, it surely needs devouring as a whole. As far as modern ambient works go, I think 'An Imaginary Country' is up there with that recent Jasper TX CD & the much adored Stars of the Lid.
