- Edited one month agoMy favourite release by The Field is here. That's the most "dreamy" album ever released by Axel, and "Leave It" & "The More That I Do" are actually my two most beloved tracks ever made by him. The only stain in this album is "Everybody's Got To Learn Sometimes", which is not bad in the absolute, but adds nothing and sounds like an intruder here. "Leave It" is the epic perfection of loopy/dreamy minimalistic electronic music with a ROCK spirit. The bassline is crazy. If the very early Pantha Du Prince of early 2000s had followed and enhanced his rock roots, he would have sounded like "Leave It". Talking about "The More That I Do", it's an enthralling loop crafting thing that sounds like The Field's first album with some upgraded skills. "I Have The Moon, You Have The Internet" and the eponym track are also in my top 10 by The Field. Just mind-blowing. "Sequenced" may also be the reason why some people have been a little bit disappointed by this album. It's a good one, but maybe more difficult to comprehend (I personally don't enjoy this track very much), and in the end quite risky to make it last so long (15 minutes) and to include it in a so short album (only 6 tracks).
All in all, still a legendary piece of art for me.
- Those not won over by The Field up until this point should probably give him a second chance. "Yesterday And Today" carries some of the sublime that the debut was missing. It is clear that he has honed in on the best aspects of his debut and strengthened these with richer production. Ignore the first two tracks and just jump straight to "Leave It"; a retake on "The Deal" that surpasses it in every way, as if it had been blended with the smooth house of Luomo. The title track is the best track of the album, starting off similarly to "Everday" and "Silent", but (properly) finishing off with a brilliant drum and bass segment. Fans of the first album will no doubt love "The More That I Do", which starts off good, but then annoyingly locks loops for the remaining five minutes, much like most of the tracks on the debut.
"Yesterday And Today" represents a promising step for The Field, one which he can hopefully follow through on in the future.
