- Anthropology Vols. 2 & 3 by Loren Dent
1 review. Write a review for us »
An epic two disc release of epic ambient symphonies made up of epic drones and epic orchestral swells. Could this get any more epic? I wasn’t even half way through and I’d already started to feel like I was evaporating, taking on a gaseous form that could spread its presence throughout the cosmos like some omniscient demi-god. With its shimmering synthesizer glissandi and slowly evolving massed chords, listening to this induces heavenly visions of golden shafts of light piercing biblical skies.
As blissfully immersive as the sound Loren Dent has developed is though, after a while I find myself longing for something visceral to drag me back down to earth. That’s not to say that there’s no variation in his music; over the duration of the disc the mood drifts subtly from sublime awe to melancholy. And there are even moments of relative darkness, like ‘Persuade Me To Sail’, with its lonely piano ricocheting through an icy hall of mirrors. If you are already a fan of Loren Dent’s work or just enjoy steeping yourself in unearthly floating ambience, then you will adore this.
