Warm and melodic, Tim Hecker’s album RADIO AMOR pulses and throb is aching beauty. Though mostly beatless, it engages the listener to drift into a space between the machine and the soul. The opening track, “Song Of The Highwire Shrimper,” sounds like a lonely Morse Code sent from the depths of isolation (with “I'm Transmitting Tonight,” with its reverberating piano chords, as the answer). “(They Call Me) Jimmy” is an electronic sigh, while “Careless Whispers” actually whispers (though not careless at all). “Azure Azure” takes a much harsher tone with distorted electric guitar drones, as if to say you’ve been floating in space long enough, and the final track returns to earth with warm, graceful synth chords. A wonderful journey inward.

<B>Radio Amor</B> is an amazing ambient album in which <B>Tim Hecker</B> brings you an infinite soundscape of beautiful noise wherein an always distorted piano sings its song. The stunning thing is that all this noise and distortion manages to be so extremely warm and gentle. <BR>

An epic soundscape this is!!

An adventure in sound!

(In my words)It's as if it's the sound of an old battered radio marooned on a desolate island pining for a partner, churning out a heartfelt collage of sounds & distortions in hope someone will hear it's melancholic waves.
Sad, moving & beautiful all at once...BUY THIS ALBUM!!
