Experimental avant-garde?

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, first of all: This is not a "pop album" like O'Rourke's later CD's "Eureka" or "Halfway to a threeway". This is electro-acoustic music, or "weird, eerie constructions of sounds and droning notes" as I prefer to call it. Also, I might not be the right person the review this CD, but I give it a try anyway. The first track is a 40-minute piece, mostly of very quiet sounds of some kind of processed clarinet (? ), machines, talking and strange statics and crackles. The humming gives a nice atmosphere and if stuff like Oval is your bag, this might be something for you. After a second track which is just 58 seconds of silence, the third and last track called "Terminal Pharmacy" start. This is mainly strings - but NOT Mantovani! Think Gyorgy Ligeti and more atonal music. Not as good as the first track "Cede" but it has something. The whole CD has "something" but I haven't figured out what it is yet..."
