This album is really interesting for two reasons: the type of sounds it provides and the fact that it always seems to build up to something and never does. After some research, I discovered Hecker based this album on "gagaku" (which means 'elegant music), a type of ancient classical japanese music. And I also discovered that the theme of this album is the "negative space" or, in other words, the place where you go when you die. An empty, dark but beautiful place. There's no ... read more

Most of the album just feels meh. Maybe if it was shorter I would like it more. There are some interesting moments here (specially Mona Lisa, what an amazing track) but there are too many songs here that feel like filler.

Favorite Tracks: Delicate, Uproar, Mona Lisa, Open Safe

Least Favorite Tracks: Let It Fly, Problems

Im gonna kind of steal ur idea for listing off my favorite singles of the year, as I was planning on doing it anyways. But mines gonna be a lot different as it will be my 25 favorite and least favorite songs, maybe more we will see how it goes!

nice, will be sure to get to those soon. if you're looking for some other weird stuff i'd recommend checking out autechre's stuff, they're my top favorite right now. i would personally start with LP5 or confield to get a feel for their sound and then just go from there however you'd like.

Thank you so much, really! Such ah honor.
Also, thanks for reminding me of Karuna Khyal, there are plenty of obscure albums I need to revisit, both listed and unlisted on my ratings, and this happens to be one of them. I'm revisiting it right now, and my score couldn't be farther from what I'm hearing. Thanks again!

I mostly listen to things I like or just random Bandcamp albums I find so don't expect many negative scores.
