CD Reviews

One of the best albums ever
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I would put this in my top 10 (maybe my top 5?) albums of all time. Certainly, my favorite Otomo Yoshihide album. For half the album, you just hear this wailing flute-ish middle-eastern sounding sample that pulses between the two speakers. You fall into a trance. Then, at the halfway mark, all these instruments come in and it's like nothing you've ever heard. I once heard a story that I'm pretty sure is wrong:

After this performance the band decided to break up because they thought they could never play anything as good as that again.

This is probably not true, but you'd think it was from the music.

This is the first of his albums I've listened to, but still my favorite. If you like Miles Electric, NoWave/Noise, freejazz, I.D.M., experimental or other odd music, YOU WILL LIke this.

Ornette Coleman and Lightning Bolt got married, and this was their child.

"The best album of the year, of the decade, of ever. The sample of Korean horn player Kim Suk Chul is awe-inspiring, and Ground Zero constucts an epic-length piece around this ear-shattering sound."
