CD Reviews

Tommy | Blighty | 12/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of my favourite holiday/driving CD's. The only ambient/electro music that I've found that's tripped out with balls - none of that blipping about for no reason. Very calming and otherworldly- useful for those early morning come-downs, basically. Top Bananas all round."
Good, not great
serotonin | Texas | 08/11/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The first time I heard the Higher Intelligence Agency was on the "sympathy in chaos2" compilation, with their song "Mainting scan for UFO's". This album is.. well, good, but none of it parallels the beauty of that song, which I assume their other work is more like.The CD itself is impressive technically, but it seems to lack any flair. Sure, it's cool listening to a whole song evolve from a single percussion loop, but it doesn't matter if the melody is banal. Which is the case with most of the songs here.. though I liked Conoid Tone, Orange and Ketamine Entity especially.Overall, it's a good CD for those inclined towards ambient electronic music, but its abstractions may frighten away those used to more melodic, mainstream music."
Ambient Dub at its Finest
Grunt Hog | Vancouver, Canada | 08/25/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Damn this is a good CD! This is one of the first and best of the "ambient dub" sub-genre of electronic music -- a beautiful, bass-heavy, laid-back set of electronic soundscapes that sound great when you're chilling at home or too stoned to move.

Ambient dub is an offshoot of electronic music that never really dominated the charts anywhere as far as I can tell, but it's a tasty, organic-sounding, and highly agreeable approach to digital music nonetheless. Higher Intelligence Agency piles colourful bloops and bleeps on top of mesmerizing basslines and relaxed beats to excellent effect. This CD is tough to track down, but well worth the effort."
