Gravitational Pull vs. the Desire for an Aquatic Life is, I have to say, a pretty fantastically appropriate title for a Stars of the Lid album. Captures the elemental, slow-moving feel of their drone compositions, not to mention their profound beauty. This is their second album, from 1996, on Kranky Records.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 2nd July 2015
The material SOTL have released, in particular their older work like this and Ballasted Orchestra, can seem uninteresting if you're not paying attention (one of the main complaints by people who don't listen to ambient frequently). The trick is to get into a state of total relaxation or put on your headphones while you're drifting off. This music triggers a quasi-dream state in my mind, plays back childhood memories, fantasy worlds that I have imagined, and makes me think of all that was and all that will ever be.
