CD Reviews

Stunning after all these years!

"Updated review in 2006

Now this is one poignant piece of soul-searing
work! I was never really a fan of godflesh (the
'main' musical affiliation of composer Justin
Broderick), but once upon a time I did have my
first hearing of this particular album and was
instantly mesmerized. Its not consistent in
the sense that one tends to expect from 'ambient'
in general - there are moments of abrasiveness,
but Justin perhaps never meant for this album to
be classified as such anyway; he doesn't
completely remove the industrial side of things.
And tet this album has rich and dark shades of
beauty that beg to be listened to again and again.
Its those gentler 'silver-seas of mercury' which
are done to such effect that maintains this CD as
one of the TOP gems of isolationist excursions.
I personally treasure this piece of work as Justin's
moment of triumph. Its a lucid, raw, haunting and
unique piece. Recently, Final 3 came out and I'm
dying to hear it!
Highly Recommended!

"Final is a side project of Justin K Broadrick, who is mostly known for his two main bands Jesu and Godflesh. And while those two bands are guitar based, Final is all about ambient soundscapes. It is the kind of music that you close your eyes to, rest, and reflect inward about a variety of different things. This is self reflective music. Passages take you through tranquility at one moment and chaos the next. This is entirely mood based, so anyone who is looking for rock music is obviously in the wrong place. Final shows that Broadrick is a very diverse and prolific musician who is worth your time."

"I have a bunch of old ambient DJ mixes that i don't know what the tracks were on them. just got this CD out of the crate and had a pass through it, and surprised to hear it holds many of my favorite moments. i expect if you listen to this in fifty years it will still be every bit as captivating. 2 is also quite good, gonna go see about three as soon as i hit the button...and kind of pitiful that solid stuff like this can be had for chump change while stupid pop records are holding their value, but whatever, good news for lucky buyers, run and go snag one..."
