CD Reviews

Classic example of the genre
P. Chavez | Houston, TX | 11/29/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I would have to agree with the other review in that this nearly 45 minute performance is flawless for the genre. No audience noises or any indication that it's live... which ranks it up there with any studio output from Main. Beautiful sounds that do more than drone, they lift you. The recording has many layers of guitar sounds that are typical of Main's output of treated guitar for gentle outer space travel. Excellent recording quality too. If you're thinking about getting this one, don't wait as they are out of print and supply is very low!"

"This is the strangest live performance I've ever listened to. Recorded at the "3eme Festival Musiques Ultimes" in Nevers, France, the six tracks form a continuous album length without breaks. However, there are no audience noises or announcements, and the sound quality is just as good as on Main's studio recordings. Amazingly, these strange circumstances led to one of Main's most consistent and worthwhile albums. Several tracks contain elements which have already appeared on previous Main releases, but without trying to duplicate them. The hoarse and flanged guitar riff of "Outer corona" is the highpoint of this live set. For me, this track is the embodiment of ambient guitar-rock. Other tracks provide occasional bass lines, subdued melodies, and sudden cuts between activity and silent soundscapes. Overall, this album is more accessible and enjoyable than the otherworldly "Firmament" series and represents something of a "Best Of Main" collection. I recommend "Deli" as first purchase for everyone who is interested in this groundbreaking band. This flawless, exciting, and strangely beautiful performance will set your mind free."
