9/10 Brian Staff review, 06 September 2012
Absolutely loved this album when I put it on the other evening. From the speakers trailed a bewitching sound, almost music-box-like in its prettiness. Kind of like Pram remixed by Natural Snow Buildings if you’d care for a loose reference as regards the opening track. Coming across like the musical interpretation of a haunted circus carousel dumped in a wan-lit woodland clearing, this piece features hypnotic and very beautiful ghostly cyclic keyboards mashing you into a stupor, this lullaby sound embellished with trilling flutters and magical shimmers swooping round your mind like droning electronic fireflies.
After a gorgeous Lucky Dragons-esque interlude spilling with chattering polyrhythms we’re back to that dreamy spectral organ, this time propped up by what sounds like the sensuous glimmer of a harp and this woody, almost tropical percussion. Truly awe-inspiring music to placate your inner Moomin.
Flipping over this shiny fresh-faced disc of wax finds us in a sort of early ‘70s electronic folk workshop/commune, more sweet rustic vintage keys of a rather different timbre ascending and descending whilst a flute co-harmonises most cutely. The words “utterly charming” cannot actually do the earthy simplicity and beauty of this number justice. A long piece follows, once again with a sugary music box twinkle beneath a shimmering psychedelic loop with all manner of intriguing electronic birdsong and light barely-there percussive tickles. The woozy melody half-buried below the gentle, virtually musique-concrete cacophony is, once again, as delicious as you wish! ‘Comets Come Alive’ is a thoroughly trippy, vibrantly organic, peace-inducing, and exciting recording from beginning to end...one of the freshest Blackest Rainbow releases to satisfy my palate in quite some time!
