Vini goes to Ibiza, Vini creates a masterpiece. (1990)

Vini goes to Ibiza, Vini is lethargic and broke after post hippie capitalist clubs rape his wallet and mind. (2014)

My favourite DC album. Meditative, melancholy, driving, and sonically pleasing even 20 years later. Its good stuff.

This album just gets better as the years go by. The Return of the Durutti Column may always be Vini's crowning achievement but this one has just about risen to #2 in my book -- and I do own them all. The similarities with the first album are not apparent at first, but they are there -- a fully instrumental work that leaps across expectations and gives the listener an experience they won't find anywhere else. I can listen to this album over and over again w/o tiring of it because it doesn't exist to make a statement -- rather it's a texture and a vibration i can live in.
