The uptempo reminds me of Monolake's Polaroid.. mixes pretty well with it too. I'm liking this high BPM Deepchord a lot myself.

Lovely sounding press, top notch cover reproduction and comes with a nice sticker. What more can you ask from a classic album reissue.

The track times match the CD version but I agree the vinyl edit could've done better. Maybe it was a license issue? All 4 albums sound great though.

Been waiting for this reissue for years! Gatefold looks great, and the album sounds fantastic. The remaster is very spacious and tender sounding. Lovely all in all!

The CD comes in a regular jewelcase, not a digipak.

Great IDM album, all tracks are memorable. One of the finest things to come out on Schematic.
posted a comment on Second Woman - S/W. about 1 year ago
Hard to say if I like this one or the S/T more, both are exploring different facets.. this one feels more rave-y in nature. The sparse vocoded melodies really play well with the busy beats and the whole album feels more wet than the S/T. Great follow-up.

20 years later, still a timeless classic. Not every single track has aged well, but most of it is still stellar along with Sawtooth.

Super nice 90s after rave vibes, perfect album to come down with. One of the most coherent albums to come out on Gost so far.

Nice little hidden IDM gem. Doesn't have any immediate comparisons beyond the Ai family but veers in the electro-idm-dub-techno terrain with plenty of bleeps and bloops, 7th chords and majestic pads. Super pleasant discovery that I'll be sure to play ... See full review

A very mature IDM album from the Danish maestro. Takes repeated listens easily. Wish it was a double with all the tracks.

Interstellar Funk's remix is cool.. the intermittent delayed synth line brings just enough tension to keep it going.. nice one

If you don't have this album yet.. may I ask what are you doing? These records were all made on earth - though it's hard to believe with this one..

One of the best kept secrets in USSR music.. should be essential in any lil bit of a soviet oddity collection. First track is like two parties colliding. I guarantee it'll be among the weirdest tracks you've heard a 909 in. It's a steal at these prices, ... See full review

Great IDM set from Mr. Kougaï. Nice low end heavy pressing. Grab it before it's gone people.

Took me a while to get into this one but really like it now.. at first listen it seemed really incoherent but then I turned the volume up. As they say, "this should be played at high volume, preferably in a residential area".

Great follow-up to Various - I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age Music In America, 1950-1990. Highlights for me are Popol Vuh, Enno Velthuys and Robert Julian Horky.

A bit of distortion on Cloudless Light. Lovely to have this on wax though.

Plenty flirting with electronica but firmly sounding like a band at all times. A couple of songs are very reminiscent of Plaid, especially the Not For Threes era. Very enjoyable and a surprisingly coherent experience from start to finish.

It's more of an issue with the white vinyl. The earlier press is far superior to this one, with less background hum and crackle.

Great pressing! Low noise and distortion. Sounds deep and clean but surprisingly not digital. Love the album, definitely up there with the Machinarium OST.

"Loose Joints" is easily one of the best tracks of 2016. 12 minutes of sub-heavy jazz-tinged electronica bliss.
posted a comment on Heidi Lord - English Electric. over 2 years ago
Very enjoyable. Comparing this to Selected Ambient Works 1 or 2 wouldn't be too far off. Apparently this is one of the label owner's favorites and the story behind it is a little saddening.

Nothing groundbreaking but still an enjoyable NA record. Similar to 80s computer-focused Erdenklang output, like Matthias Thurow - Cornucopia and Hubert Bognermayr & Harald Zuschrader - Computerakustische Klangsinfonie.

Is Cleopatra cut off or is the song originally like that? It only seems to last for 4:01, not 4:27, and stops abruptly.
