The arrival of a new Philip Jeck album is always a good day, with this, his sixth fresh out of the box and straight into the CD player. This sounds wonderful, but then I expect nothing less from Jeck who over the years has become a master of his artform. This has been created using extracts from live performances and has been remixed at home. His usual turntable set up was used along with mini disc recorders, bass guitar, and effects pedals. As well as the rich textured soundscapes he creates there are also some lovely sparkly twinkling chimes. This arrived late so unfortunately I'm unable to fully digest it, but what I'm hearing is fantastic. 'Twentyninth' really sends a shiver up the spine while 'All That's Allowed (Remix)' is a wide-screen opus that takes on a huge emotional resonance while I discover from the press sheet that the album is a meditation on verse 33 of "The Wreck Of Deutchsland" a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins about the drowning of five Franciscan nuns exiled from Germany.
