Synopsis

Amazon.com
John McEntire of Chicago's Tortoise is riding the postrock wave for all it's worth. The soundtrack for director William Ryan's film features a sizable chunk of McEntire's instrumental work as well as contributions from a full-fledged Tortoise, the Sea and Cake, Polvo, Dianogoh, and Bundy K. Brown. Don't expect much in the way of the bands' previous output. This is background music where, and atmosphere reigns supreme. A series of muted abstract pieces that veer dangerously close to New Age (as opposed to Tortoise's usual fusion), the music pulses to its own internal logic, dissolving in bursts of minimalist color and ambient layering. Nothing particularly substantial on their own terms, the pieces work as something more likely absorbed than listened to; the placid textures encourage a reflective, meditative state. --Rob O'Connor

(5 out of 5 stars)

"the soundtrack for the film reach the rock has an excellent blend of mood, feeling, and mystery. i think that john mcentire did an amazing job on the whole project. i especially like the tenth song on the cd entitled the kiss. the song by dianogah entitled dreams of being king, has the must beautiful guitar parts. the polvo track, reverse migraine, with the piano, the rich and soothing piano. this release excites me about the future of music. YOU MUST BUY THIS CD"
