Perfect work by Paul Frankland.

While it may not have had the impact of 1194 or have been thought well of by Frankland himself, I think this is still a worthy effort and well worth the price it commands. The Pondlife -> Woobed -> Creek progression are amazing, and while Depart is great as well, it seems to drag on about 10 minutes longer than it should have - those last 10 feel like a completely disconnected piece to me.

Maybe not as good as the first album - that had the organic flow from start untill end - but with Pondlife, Creek and Depart Paul Frankland has created yet again beauty and uplift. Especially Depart I consider to be among the best modern day music productions. It has the tension and alienation of the 5th symphony of Mahler, the spheres of Eno's ambient 4 and Apollo, and the fragility and desolation of Dead Can Dance's Yulunga. Magic!

Nowhere near as good as the first Woob release - 1194 but if you liked that then you'll probably not be offended by this.
