8/10 Ant 24 April 2009
The long awaited Wisp album on Rephlex is finally with us (CD only at the moment with double vinyl to follow). The CD has 14 tracks, 4 of which comprised the Katabatic 12". So I'm guessing the vinyl version may just be the other 10 tracks but who knows. He's a talented producer this chap with a good combination of fresh ideas as well as wearing obvious influences on his sleeve. He's got loads of tricks and wizardry but manages to retain soul and emotion in the tracks. 'Keeper Of The Hills' is a particularly sweet tune with lush melodies and a wicked switch in tempo mid way. I like the way he keeps the more up beat numbers fairly restrained with lots of strings and breakdowns. Some of the arrangements are really very good. Wisp has definitely found the right home for his sound at Rephlex as 'The Shimmering' has all the elements of classic Braindance.

 Whoever did the review for this LP at Norman headquarters needs to get some cotton buds to sort their chronic wax and grime blockage out, or see their G.P. cause im ECSTACTIC about this great LP.

 This is the one of the best releases on Rephlex to date. It's an excellent journey from start to finish with all the high's,  low's and exiting bits you could dream of. Im so pleased Rephlex signed "Wisp" cause this is what we want from the Rephlex. Hopefully they'll be more of this great electronica for many years to come.

Planet Mu sadly lost their way, Rephlex are showing the rest how it's done.

10 out of 10. Dont miss this one.
