CD Reviews

A Simple Pleasure
Matt Wilson | Andalusia, AL USA | 02/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Single Cell Orchestra begins with a thin sounding drum track. As another reviewer has stated, it hardly begins to pave a promising path, but hang in there. Wave upon wave of ocean-like layers of sound rise and fall over this simple foundation rendering a mediocre beginning into a fine all-around finish. This is what you will find in this album. Never flashy, it has a beauty and elogance in its simplicity that you can lose yourself in. The relatively quiet yet persistent drum tracks found in a number of the songs are bound to frustrate the more dance-minded raver sect... but as a fan of electronic music, I found this disc a refreshing splash of water. Some will criticize it for its simplicity, but I feel this is where the music is at its most powerful. A wonderful listen!"
Layered Electric

"Transmit Liberation. What an absolute piece of classic electronica that is. A slow build over warm lush synth washes. The mind bogies at its imagery. In fact it seems as if the whole album leads up to this track. Previous numbers offering different variations on a similar feeling. Because ( just look at the track titles) after TL were are at that otherplace, blasted outwards so to speak. Up above and loving it. Flight 2127 has no beat just a wonderful flow of melody. Stunning. The whole voyage ends with the measured comedown of Freefall.Knockout Drops is another standout piece for me. Very melancholy - just what I like :)Be sure to check out ( if you can find it ) the other SCO album `Dead Vent 7'"
A revitalizing ambient epic

"Although a good portion of this album is spent on tracks that often seem only slight variations of the highlight, "Start," one hardly notices. This is a substantial work and one that will readily transport the listener to the oft-told ambient atmosphere of bliss that few can sustain for this long. Don't expect to dance or anything, but they hold a melody surprisingly well for a light electronic act. It's always a good inspiration to get to work or make art (a la Global Communication, Terre Thaemlitz, et. all)."
