Keith Berry ‎– The Ear That Was Sold To A Fish

Crouton ‎– crou028
CD, Album, Limited Edition


1 The Sun Rays Of Another Pale Afternoon Gently Caress My Hatless Head, Sparkling An Imperceptible Combustion Of Illusory Comfort. Your Luminescent Mantle Allures; My Reasons Are First Redeployed, The Disappear Completely While The Glowing Orange Of Your Scales Are Convincing Me To Quicken My Decision. 5:12
2 Cars Keep Passing By; I Feel Like Rebelling To My Immobile Legs. I Always Dreamed Of Translating A Tangible Apprehensiveness Into The Negation Of The Present. Suddenly, Everything Seems Futile, Except Our Intense Look To Each Other. 6:14
3 To Me, It's Just An Oddness, For I Listen Through Fingers And Heart. Even If I Can't Hold You In My Hands, I'd Surely Wish You Had It Instead Of Me. Do You See Me Now? What Form Do I Have? What Colour, Then? 4:53
4 My Backward Voyage To The Spring: Memories Are Smashed To Smithereens. I Never Thought Much About My Schoolmates, Always Had To Enter That Door Much Earlier Than The Others. Little Did I Know I Would Have Met You There. 5:02
5 Can You Elevate Yourself When Surrounded By Dark Waters? I Wish I Knew - I Couldn't Find The Courage To Jump, That November Evening. I'm Paddling To No Avail, Trying To Find You. Your New Condition Put A Distance That We Need To Shorten. 5:17
6 Fuscous Presages Don't Help Remaining Cool. Numberless Reproaches Have Blocked My Escapes And No One Ever Will Give Me A Ride To Your Place. No One Will Miss My Silences, Too. It's Not Really Inestimable - Still It Has A Value To Me. You Just Seem Not To Care; An Eternity Awaits For You To Understand. 4:04
7 Knelt Over The Water, My Whole Being Is A Perfect Zero If Looked From Above. My Devoutness To Intuition Will Deliver Me From Sorrow. 5:43
8 Tomorrow I'll Become Adult: Still I Don't Know Why Should I. Levigating New Angles Of Harsh Realities Is Not What I Am Supposed To Learn. 0:59
9 You Left Me Behind - But I Can Swim. 6:24

Keith Berry states that his music contains the spirit of Eastern philosophies, poetry and other sources of deep knowledge. After listening "The Ear That Was Sold To A Fish" it may seem quite true. This is definitely more than another deep and hypnotizing ambient album. The drones sound so solid, that you cannot get into their structure and may think they have their own life. And scattered are different noises: "dog-whistling", crackling, hissing... Keith Berry calls them blocks of sound that can unlock brain mechanisms, which prevent enlightenment. And I say it is 100% true. "The Ear That Was Sold To A Fish" was the only album that caused me to have the deepest and most impressive out-of-body experience ever. A very special piece of soundwork, not to be missed out.
