CD Reviews

Stephen Kokker | 09/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a recent but highly enthusiastic devotee of Byrd's musical mania, and his crazy happy energy. Electric Byrd is like none of his other albums and is an atmopsheric trip that begs to be shared with others on your wavelength or alone, where the ephemeral, transporting, otherworldly sounds created in the first three tracks especially will transform any space they're played in. The last track, The Dude, is for me the only track I wish weren't on this CD, especially coming after the utter perfection that is Xibaba, which brilliantly interweaves dreamy sounds reminiscent of those experimented with by Vangelis at around the same time (listen to La Petite fille de la mer from Apocalypse des Animaux, or Reves from Opera Sauvage). If you liked the vibes on Ethiopian Nights, this CD will take you even deeper into Byrd's netherworld."
