CD Reviews

This is da kine
Roy Sablosky | takoma park, md USA | 12/23/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Remember how, a million years ago, they used to say that Eric Clapton was "God"? Remember that? The epithet referred to his guitar-playing skills, of course, not to his supposed omniscience or anything like that. He was a guitar god. In this same sense, Reinhard Voigt (Sturm) is a laptop god. He takes atoms of pre-existing musics and builds crystalline structures out of them in an eternity outside of time, and then asks us to dance to them. That would be like confessing a candy-wrapper at the Cathedral of Notre Dame, non? Quelle betise! No, it's not for dancing. But it might be good music for thinking. And feeling. And for tapping your toes while you surf the Web -- or while you finally write that novel. I knew you had it in you! It's 2003 and nothing is impossible. I am listening to this album again as I type this review. Both activities involve my Macintosh. This album is a stunning achievement and I am changing my rating from 4 stars to 5. It is very, very abstract -- I must warn you. But, IF you like abstract, AND you like to dance, this could be one of the most amazing albums you've ever heard."
