CD Reviews

Link to infinity

"I wouldn't consider of Rapoon's (=Robin Storey) music as strictly ambient at least in the way Eno, Roach or vidna Obmana define ambient through their work. Maybe that's because of the strong presence of tribal/ethnic (of arabic aesthetics mostly) elements.Storey doesn't deny his Zoviet France "roots" but you won't find any harsh or industrial elements in Rapoon's music.

The Kirghiz Light is beautifuly hypnotic, mysterious, and insidiously compelling. In some tracks female far cries intermingle so well with the music you begin to doubt if the vocals are real or if you just imagine them as a logical expansion of keyboards. In some others you doubt if the rumble you hear is from the cd or is it the beating of your heart. I have left myself under the effect of the Kirghiz Light many times, always getting the feeling of being in the middle of the desert, under the intense heat of the sun, under the resurgent sound that surrounds me. The music is beautifully monotonous and unearthly.After listening to both of the cds you get a feeling of looseness and narcosis. You should expect few mediocre moments/passes (not a surprise for a 150min album) but they do not affect the overall concept which maybe is Rapoon's best work..."

"I got this CD from a friend and became instantly addicted. The best was hearing it while sleeping in my car in Joshua Tree."
