8.6 - Amazing

EDIT: It I starting to grow off me, I don’t know if I can call this AOTY anymore, it for some reason got a little more unmemorable with each listen. I still really like it though, and it is still quite an astonishing album front to back. This also might change since it hasn’t been too much time.

After listening to Igloo’s past work throughout the week, I gotta say, he continues to blow my mind.

Lei Line Eon is the new album to come out from the maximalist ... read more

Since triumphantly bursting onto the Experimental and Electronic music circuits in 2015 with “Chines Nü Year”, Iglooghost has been one of the most consistent and boundary pushing artists of his era and this is no different!

I also want to not note I never thought i would see so many stringed instrumental progressions on an Igloo record but it matches up so well with the glitchy electronics that i’ve come to know Iglooghost so well for in the past! An unlikely combination ... read more

SOPHIE's long lost son.
This will be hailed as the best electronic album of the year as long as Nicolas Jaar doesn't drop anything.
Absolutely incredible. Countless eargasmic moments and unique musical choices that put it high up there with some of the best albums of the year.

Let me start this off by saying I am a huge Iglooghost fan. This guy is a severely underrated wonky artist and his insane production style always leaves me in awe.

On this album, Iglooghost has his wonky roots taking a backseat and has a more electronic art pop sound on here. I do like a handful of the tracks in this style such as the intro track Eœ (Disk•Initiate) and Pure Grey Circle but I do seem to prefer the tracks on here where the wonky elements seep through a bit more (e.g. ... read more

Igloo is making grown up music now. No more neurotic footwork over chopped vocals and sugar-coated synths. We've transitioned to meditative choirs accompanied by lush strings, suave electronics and the occasional child choir. It's all nice and dandy, but it's a bit forced. I get that the formula got stale by the time Neo Wax Bloom came out and there was a need for a change-up. But maybe avant-garde ambient wasn't the best call. Stuff's alright I guess, a bit tame.

What a trip! It feels like each song is a pod and you're bouncing around to different pods with these transitions, never knowing what will come next. Needless to say, I knew from the first track that this is one of those ones that you gotta let take you on a journey, and boy does it.

Every song is covered head to toe with texture, with constant pulsating electric sounds and low chattering bass hits. These sounds are so thick and they slam so hard that at one point it physically moved me. It's ... read more

Without abandoning his roots completely, Igloo leaves the wonky club setting to introduce what he refers to as a new genre. It's a sprawling and organic take on progressive electronics fused with art-pop that can really only be compared to other genre-bending, colossal records like Oneohtrix's R+7 and/or Objekt's Cocoon Crush.

7.3/10

An unconventional and uncompromising project with a gigantic experimental quality and masterful production. The sound of "Lei Line Eon" is sticky, glitchy, massive, silky, and mazy, concise but extremely wide, it conveys this mystic, eery energy of all the unknown sounds bombarding you from every place. This electronic rainfall goes so well with the graceful and spacious background landscapes and variously modified vocals, feeling like something ... read more

With this sophomore release, pioneering electronic mastermind Iglooghost makes an awkward even if at times promising detour of sorts.

Seamus Rawles Malliagh also known as Iglooghost spent the second half of last decade paving an entirely new lane of electronic music for a new wave of artists. His incredibly impactful EP "Chinese Nü Year" and flawless debut LP, "Neo Wax Bloom" immediately left a mark in the electronic music landscape. It's impressive to see so many ... read more

Iglooghost burst onto the electronic scene in 2017 with an amazingly cacophanous, ambitious and unique blend of wonky, bubblegum bass and deconstructed club on his debut, Neō Wax Bloom. The album's strong sense of presence in its mutli-layered, heavily stylised breakdowns made it a joy to delve deep into, and four years and some mediocre EPs later, and a second look at the world Seamus Malliagh had created with his music was sure to be an exciting update. However, Lei Line Eon fails to meet ... read more

Iglooghost cements himself as one of the most creative people making music rn. I don't even know how you can make music like this.

First time listening to Iglooghost and wait you combined chamber music with hyperpop I'm damn impressed; the universe this album transported me to is Beautiful I don't want to return back to Earth it's a combination of the ULTRA Progressive electronic of Queen SOPHIE, ARCA, & UMRU. All 10 tracks blew my mind and the album wasn't too long, Zones U can't reach is one of the unpredictable JAM of this year. 👍👊👌

iglooghost delivers yet another exceptional and breath-taking project that solidifies him as one of the most progressive and creative names on electronic music at the moment, taking his signature sounds a step further.

«Lei Line Eon» is somewhat different from other iglooghost albums. Here the production sounds even more experimental, while he manages to break some boundaries few other artists had ever tried to. The hyper-digitalized futuristic fast-paced artificial melodies are ... read more

Okay, so this is a little bit harder to get into than Neō Wax Bloom, which isn't entirely a bad thing because what Seamus is trying to do here is a lot different: represent the atmosphere and scenery of the world he has created, which is much different than the events and action of the previous narratives. While the beats and rhythms are still here to an extent, they're a lot more free-form, ethereal, and spacious, allowing the sounds themselves to take center stage rather than the kooky ... read more

IGLOOGHOST BABYYY!!!!

Self-proclaimed King of "Ceremonial Laptop Music" elevates his unique style of futuristic & progressive electronic music that incorporates UK bass, deconstructed club, nu jazz, and glitch hop (...just to name a few).

And where does he elevate it to? To another world of course! Seamus's lore & universe is well-crafted and a wonderful hybrid of music and animation. "Lei Line Eon" may seem like it is stripping back all of it's craziest wonky ... read more

The tracks are listenable, but often without the lyrical substance to make the experience profound. The effort is respectable. Often times, I get intrigued by the novel rhythmic cadences that it offers; however, they merely remain as spectacles of intrigue. While some are okay, some are quite questionable. They feel like random caprices of the producer's mind rather than cerebral inventions of production. I dislike the conflation of inventiveness and listenability. While there is no doubt that ... read more

Otro álbum bien logrado por parte de iglooghost.

No hay duda de que iglooghost es uno de los artistas más interesantes en la industria de la música actualmente.
Después de escuchar su álbum en el 2017 "Neō Wax Bloom" supe que este artista sería uno de los mayores exponentes para la electrónica progresiva y el glitch pop/glitch hop.

El genio y la habilidad de este artista, al igual que sus ideas; hacen de la producción una ... read more

It's quite a simple concept at heart but Iglooghost's mix of riveting UK Bass and Wonky with orchestral elements is effective nonetheless. They add a new dimension to the number of bangers on the album. The features aren't exactly anything to go crazy about and there a few duds too but looking past that this is certainly one of the most memorable electronic projects from the past couple years at least.

Sonically astounding, Lei Line Eon resembles Clipping’s 2020 masterstroke, but from an alternate dimension.

This album is just amazing! I love the way that it combines the sounds of Ichiko Aoba and the late SOPHIE to create a masterpiece of electro-art-pop that is truly in its own lane.

There’s so many intricacies to the production and vocals that really help to improve the sound of the record as a whole. I actually enjoy the little girl's voice used throughout the album, unlike other users, because it adds to the sense that you are a small thing in this giant world you are exploring. Also, ... read more
