8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 10 December 2009
Veteran axe manipulator and king of ambient experimentation Peter Wright has blessed us lucky folk at Norman's with a new, vinyl only release entitled 'Bright Failing Star' out now on Release the Bats. Taking a slightly different approach to Install's 'Snow Blind' CD from earlier this year, 'Bright Failing Star' is a somber affair with opener 'Magnetic' setting the tone for the rest of the album. This is a slow burning ambient piece that whirs around the brain in a rather nauseating manner and yet it's strangely blissful, like a chanted mantra or a bout of meditation. The tone here is colder and darker than on previous albums but that makes for a pleasant change and sorta fits in nicely with the seasonal change to cold and dark days. Smatterings of found sounds and piano colour 'Amtrak' and I'm pretty sure I can here bowed strings on the mammoth final track 'Arrest', this may be a violin but is more than likely some possessed super skilled guitar trickery on Wright's behalf. So, a record full of winters discontent but showing hints of brighter seasons to come.
