Another impressive jazz album from the North Carolina band.
On the whole, I like Fall Sounds more, but Of Color Bright has quite a few bright spots of its own.
A dark conviction runs through these songs, along with a tangible spirituality that makes them so intensely captivating.
While all of the songs are electronic in nature, they avoid falling into the normal trappings of your average dancehall fare.
Once again, we have another release proving that not all electronic music falls into that amorphous realm called “electronica.”
Anyone who considers themselves a fan of World Serpent, Projekt, Cold Meat, or other similar labels would do themselves well to find a copy.
Disappointing, but will do just fine for those who haven’t heard bootlegs of Spiritualized’s inspired live show.
There’s so much more substance here than anything produced by the average person alone in a basement doing electronically reconstructed jazz.
This stuff is actually worth listening to, and not as some sort of sonic endurance test.
The best way to enjoy this disk is not really so much as a Low record, but as a relatively well-done compilation of electronic and ambient music.
Scientific’s self-titled debut possesses a sense of nostalgic fun that sounds retro without being kitschy.
The whole disk is nice and airy, never a dissonant note for too long.
These songs will wrap themselves around you, like half-remembered pictures, sounds, and smells.
An uneventful mix made up of mostly boring and pointless tracks.
Buy this album, if only to see what’s currently happening in cutting-edge Christian music.
It’s probably accurate to say that this album best bridged the gap between dreampop, techno, ambient, and jungle.
He has taken evangelism to a peculiar but effective level that involves love and not persecution.
