CD Reviews

Travis Miller | Shepherdstown, WV United States | 04/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow. Like, wow. I've been listening to this album almost every night when I go to bed for a year now, and I'm still not sick of it. The warm textures and lullaby melodies massage your brain into a state of utter contentment. It's like being snuggled into a soft blanket as a child, on Christmas Eve, with a kitten, on Valium."
Not to be listened to while driving

"Classified as "space-rock," a term that even mystifies Windy & Carl themselves, this album does not rock. Windy & Carl are not about so much about "songs" as they are about gorgeous sonic textures. At first, the three tracks on this disc may sound like exercises in self-indulgence, but on more careful listening, the listener will discover the slight variations and the way the sound waves interact and play off one another. Sheer aural beauty."
A vast and forbidding landscape of great beauty

"The 20-minute title track has to be Windy & Carl's masterwork, a triumph of minimalism. There's nothing to it but a looped scratch like a stuck record, a wavering bass drone, and several layers of guitar. Nearly formless and yet utterly hypnotic, it summons up the feeling of flying at great speed above endless icy terrain (or maybe I'm just reading too much into the title...) The other two tracks are lighter, venturing more into Frippertronics category a la Fripp & Eno's classic "Evening Star"..."
