CD Reviews

Storm rushes from endless depths
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The first time I heard a Slowdive album (Pygmalion - etherally beautiful), I was impressed by the enormous amount of reverb that was used on the guitars and vocals. Later on I experienced the album 'New Lands' on which Flying Saucer Attack drives the genre to the max. FSA, however, is less accessable given the amount of distortion that accompanies the verbie-sound. The music of this W&C CD is somewhat in between the two, easier to swallow than FSA, but not so melodic as slowdive. It's very minimal and repetitive, but it got me high really. It's fascinating how music can be annoying and beautiful at the same time. My plants also like it, I think, since they are growing more rapidly since I bought this record. My cat ran away, though."
Guitar - Feedback - Drone - Dub. Yes, that sums it up.

"Bought this and Labradford's "Mi Media Naranja" based on reviews here and elsewhere because they sounded fascinating. They are! The closest things I have heard to this CD are The Durutti Column (Vini Reilly) and, maybe, some of Robert Fripp's ambient "Frippertronics" stuff (e.g. "A Blessing Of Tears"). I play this often. My wife heard it today and thought it was the vacuum cleaner. I hope that helps!"
Still a disappointment to me

"I dearly love much of W&C's work, but "Depths" has stubbornly failed to grow on me despite many listens. It has its moments (particularly the last track, "Surfacing"), but in between are too many repetitive drones that don't compare to their ultramajestic works "Antarctica" and "A Dream Of Blue", both of which I cannot recommend highly enough..."
