I'm reviewing 'Slider' by Watanabe Takashi purely because it's got an awesome digipak sleeve and the music is mental. It's got that gorgeous neo classical thing going on but the spirit of a giggling drunkard.

I'm reviewing 'Slider' by Watanabe Takashi purely because it's got an awesome digipak sleeve and the music is mental. It's got that gorgeous neo classical thing going on but the spirit of a giggling drunkard. It sounds like it's walking in 20 different directions all at once but get this, it doesn't disorientate you, just delights! If you like Philip Glass, Terry Riley, Yann Tiersen's quirky interludes & our very own Gareth S Brown then this CD of lilting strings, cheeky piano tinkles, crashing drums, joyous brass flourishes & subtle electronic twinges will bring you much happiness. 'Slow Dance' has an Oriental vibe to it actually with manipulated radio interference & some of the most lovely piano but could be Herbert remixing Max Richter such is it's eccentricity. Overall this CD is as mad as a box of frogs but very cohesive & beautifully recorded. One of the most playful, musical albums I've heard. The accessible face of the avant-garde! Having one of these for deffo!
