CD Reviews

Spooky, spacey companion album
A. Pasulka | Midwest USA | 07/19/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very dense, atmospheric companion to "Pure" by The Golden Palominos. Some of the personnel of Pure are here, but Blind Light has some other voices and instruments that Pure doesn't have. By 'companion' I mean that musical themes are revisited and reexamined here on "Absence of Time."Any fan of Bill Laswell's various bands (eg, Material, TAZ, and the various Axiom Ambient and Axiom Funk disks) will appreciate his influence and contributions to Blind Light (another Laswell "temporary autonomous zone").This is like a soundtrack to a science fiction movie set in Morrocco; it's at times dreamy, light, and deeply spiritual and personal, and other times claustrophobic and paranoid. An excellent latenight chillout album.Similarly, I'd recomment finding "Dreamspeed" by Anton Fier, which is a companion album to The Golden Palominos' excellent album "This Is How It Feels."PS take those four albums: Absence of Time, Pure, This Is How It Feels and Dreamspeed, and explore the recordings of the musicians on those albums, and you'll have a collection all your friends will want to borrow. There is an enormous span of jazz, folk, rock, funk, and world music through those portals."
