8/10 Brett Staff review, 19 August 2010
This is one of those that takes a few minutes before you're finally convinced that it's not a blank CD but once it kicks off there's loads going on.. Actually it's probably the most varied release I can remember hearing on the label to date. So far there's been subtle field recordings, twinkling Moondog-style kalimba (at least I think that's what it was), Celer-y (celery LOL) ambient breathscapes, psychedelic organ drones, noisy looped samples, whalesong and what kinda sounds like the synths at the start of 'Where the Streets Have No Name' by U2.. And I'm barely a quarter of the way in. So yeah, loads to get your teeth into and the way in which Elian (Michael Duane Ferrell to his mates) moulds and combines the myriad elements is totally expert. An ambitious effort, no doubt, and a very successful one I'd say!
