This is not Brian Eno's dubstep album. 'The Drop' is a largely formless collection of ambient soundscapes in the vein of the producers best and most influential works, combining his disciplines with abundant melodies. Originally released towards the turn of the century, like 'Another Green World' happening all over again, a little bit quieter.

These are compositions that roll along at their own unique paces and which exude their own individual flavours. There's atmospheric depth as well as layers of thick, experimental fusion present and this version is great. I like to think of this album as a collection of snippets of interesting and odd sounds and melodies that are both colourful and nocturnal. "Iced World" in all of its 30+ minutes of peaceful bliss, is a masterpiece not far from anything contained on his excellent and spooky, On Land album or what can be heard on The Shutov Assembly.
