CD Reviews

Technically compromised
Paul F. Penna | Santa Rosa, CA USA | 06/11/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This CD seems to have been mastered from a mono source, with what sounds like a mild electronic amibiance added. I have some tracks from this album on a "Best of... " Lyman CD in real stereo, so I don't know what happened here. Also, the track listings on both the back cover and inside the booklet...are inaccurate, with tracks out of order and at least one item listed, but not actually on the CD."
Awesome late 50's ambient lounge
Shrinkboy | Where else? North Texas | 12/27/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"recorded on an Ampex three track live in the Kaiser Aluminum Dome at Waikiki, this album is part of Lyman's series riffing on the legend and mythology of the Hawaiian pantheon. I actually believe he sort of meant it. I also believe that he had no idea he had recorded the sonic ancestor to Lifeforms by Future Sound of London, and many other ambient/techno/exotica slabs.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I find the sound on my original copy of the vinyl to be OUTSTANDING! it is well worth the effort to seek out the original ...have fun."

"They're all the greatest. All Arthur Lyman are equally dynamic, adventurous, well-done, mysterious and "great islands exotic". A must-have in any mix whether relaxation, dinner, contemplation or party."
