Synopsis

Album Description
"Impossible to classify, but think Royksopp, Zero 7... The Orb, Pink Floyd and 'Papua New Guinea' -era Future Sound Of London as markers. Even then you're only scratching the surface."- Muzik (UK) "Banco de Gaia will give those duking it out for a piece of the electronica sales pie a reason to sweat with Big Men Cry. "Celestine" features the sax work of Dick Parry, whose solos can be heard on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon"- Billboard

CD Reviews

Greatest gaian album
groovesoup | Sweden | 04/25/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is trainmusic. It is also music hard to review since it hits the gaian, spiritual part of your mind more than your simple human intellect:-)...but I'll give it a try.
Banco De Gaia has always been onto something big, but somehow the music has been to mature to really excite. This is not the case with Big Men Cry. Still mature it also has the feeling of a sane child free to play. Hence this is the best album by the man. With tribal drums, exotic voices and live recordings of engines, mixed with alien electronic tweeked tones, fat base and also "silence", it has the capability to give you an out of the body experience towards the end of the album."

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Toby Marks writes ecclectic electronic dance music; great. But what I came across on this CD were tracks 6 & 7. Polished well produced electronica space ambience. Not mysterious. Yet not new age....#6 "One billion miles out" tracks an elliptical heliopausal journey to the edge of our solar system. Kuiperian chants mix with intangable inner space communications to fill the dark void....#7 "Starship earth" is an intense (20 min) evolving oversized production. Somewhere out there filamentous infrared cirrus sounds support a base for various eclipsing binaries. Ghostly protogalactic hollow voices hold your attention while wonderfully balanced sound waves support the fabric of this space project."
Tremendously Imaginitive and Inspired Album

"This album is thoughtful and complex. The tracks start out simply and innocently enough, slightly timid and shy, and before you know you it, you're drawn into a sonic landscape and not only unfolds infront of you, but pulls you into its vortex.

The music is enraging, engaging, emotional, and spiritual. This album has it all, and clearly one of my all time favorites.

I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
