This new Ben Frost album is well tasty. It took me a while to get into the last one but when I did it blew me away. 'By the Throat' is quite similar in the way it doesn't immediately hit you. I've heard it a few times now and it's really quite fantastic. Dark droney, doomy fuzzy atmospherics which suck you in to Mr Frosty's dark world of doomy fuzzyness. The press release says if you've got records by Sunn O))), Fennesz, Tim Hecker, Thomas Koner and Murcof then you'll like this and I think that's totally spot on. It practically does all my work for me it's that spot on. It's very eerie sounding powerful music which has a haunting disturbed quality that's totally wrapped in beauty. Quite a hard thing to accomplish I think and Mr Ben has done it splendidly here. Spend plenty of time with this one as the more you spend on it the more you'll get out of it. Lovely stuff.

10/10 Andrew Customer review,

As good as Fever Ray was, I'd still pick this as my album of 2009.I've been listening to it for weeks, though 'experiencing it' may be amore accurate description as it's a far from passive creature. It'sthat weird thing of having almost limitless potential from playing thesame recorded sounds repeatedly - it just keeps giving things updepending on your mood, location or whatever. Some of the noises onthis album are almost impossible to classify as animal, human ormechanical, like some hybrid species is in your ears. The mangled breath on 'Hibakusja' is one of the most disturbing things I've heard in a very long time yet with an underlying beauty. Quite, quiteextraordinary how much exists on that little shiny plastic disc. Genetic alchemy, anybody?Oh,and it has wolves too - lots of them. Always a win bonus.
