Boring, pointless soundsc(r)apes for people who don't have a deep knowledge of ambient / drone / glitch type music. The acclaim that this album has gotten is what happens when fanboys of a record label want badly for it to have a new star artist, but don't notice or care that the new emperor has no clothes.

VENICE might bring up images of gondolas, canals and Piazza San Marco, but Fennesz has a different view: the refractions and wanderings of "Rivers Of Sand," for instance, or the drifting warmth of "Château Rouge" that suddenly surges forward. But "City Of Light" stays on the ambient side, with long, sustained tones, and "Circassian" loads on the layers of guitar haze. "Transit" introduces more of an industrial feel at its start before David Sylvian brings his croon to bear, while "The Point of It All" returns to moody atmospherics. The album ends with the noisier "The Stone of Impermanence," which goes to show that Fennesz's view of Venice is surely a personal -- albeit beautiful -- one.

If you like My Bloody Valentine, shoegazing, anything lush and thick you must buy this album. I won Fennesz's Plays, Hotel Parallel, Return of the Fennoberg and this one, which I picked up just the other day. Venice is prolly the best cd I've picked up since the Snare's HCCBU came out. It has the electronic equivalent to droning guitars playing over slight pops and bubbles of pleasant electronic goodness, like listening to sun light pouring down upon and streaming over the ocean as waves roll over dancing fish. Its great.
