Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Third Eye Foundation make dark and dreamy electronic music. On the surface, the edgy, skittering drum programming owes a lot to drum & bass, but the overall aesthetic of Matt Elliott (the wizard of this particular Oz) stands a bit apart. Like Squarepusher circa Feed Me Weird Things (minus the spunk-jazz zaniness) or New York's We, the beats seem intended to destabilize the pulse rather than issue a challenge to dancers, sidestepping the dance floor in favor of heightening the uneasiness of the music. Elliott's use of vocals is what makes this release really distinctive. They seem to be neither the kind of sampled snippets that are plainly "flown in" from some other source and recontextualized, nor are they clearly new performances sung along with the rest of the music. He uses both male and female voices, heavily electronically mutated from their original forms, and their overall impact is very lush even when it's hard to call them beautiful in any conventional sense. --Bob Bannister

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack for a Foggy Evening October 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Fans of former Depeche Mode member Alan Wilder and his personal project, "Recoil," should enjoy this haunting album. While Recoil's album structure relies on spoken word vocals to tell a story, "Little Lost Souls" does it without having to say much. If there ever was an album to keep you on the edge of your seat while driving in backwoods country during a crisp, foggy evening, it's this one. 3EF (Third Eye Foundation) carefully constructs eerie ambient soundscapes without ever sounding tired or uninteresting (a problem with some trance-based atmospheric artists).

Atmospheric music can easily be ruined by the overusage of vocals if they dominate the ambience. On "Little Lost Souls," 3EF carefully adds them to give the tracks a more "humane" sound. Never does any track feel forced, nor do they sound typical of the genre. Aphex Twin, who may be a distant cousin to 3EF, can sometimes come across a little weak and "thrown together" as to meet an apparent deadline.

It's an excellent album and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys "intelligent" techno and/or dark music that could very well appeal to electronic music fans who don't care much for the bright lights of clublife.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet from Third Eye Foundation February 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Matt Elliott's third full-length release as "The Third Eye Foundation" returns from the edgy screeches of his last album towards a more melodic, but still twisted, base.
As in his first album, "You Guys Kill Me", Elliott makes much use of detuned instruments that sound mournful and lost. He adds to this rhythms that range from low-key pattering breakbeats through drilling assaults that prove surprisingly pleasant to the ear.
"Little Lost Soul" makes restrained use of samples of overwrought opera singing; this fits into the music much more cleanly than I had expected, as I am now sadly too used to djs slapping some random qawwali singing into a dance track and calling the resulting egregious mess "world music".
I've been playing this album repeatedly for several weeks, and I love it. It's great to come across an English electronic musician once in a while who is not in huge debt to Aphex Twin, and who is willing to eschew the current fascination with "jazz and drum and bass" fusion in favour of darker shores.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eerie and Melancholy Soundscaping. March 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
When I listen to music, I like to see what is being conveyed. I like to be swept into an aural world that engulfs my mind. This album does exactly that. This and "You Guys Kill Me" are easily the most assessable of Third Eye's work, and in many ways the most visceral. "What is it with you" is a wonderful track that brings to mind Alien/Native American cries to ancestors long since gone from this world. "Lost" stands out as one of the most emotionally wrenching tracks I have heard. It conveys a beautiful, intense and eerily melancholy stance that reminds me of a lovechild between ELpH era "Coil" and "Godspeed you Black Emperor". This whole album has a weird quality to it that makes it seem like a musical soundtrack to a spirit's search for home. It is because of this quality that the album is so affective and selective with its listeners. Some people will not "get" this album, but for me, it is one of the most unforgettable albums I have ever heard. 4 ˝ rounded to a 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars what the...? October 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I picked up this cd on a whim after recalling the artists name on a friends mp3 audio playlist. I figured what the heck, try something new.

I was totaly blown away. After listening all the way though the CD I immediatly sent him (Matt) an email congradualating him on what he has done. Being a big fan of the movie Amelie i picked up on a few samples right away and knew exactly who they came from. It was brilliant.

I dont know what type of music this is called..trance, ambient or what have you, but this CD became a bit of an emotional attachment for me. There are alot of memories in my life from the past few years that are tied to this album. Coming from a more punk rock/ rock n roll background i was skeptical but all I can say is...

GET IT. NOW.

But dont feel discouraged when you never find anything to compare to it again.
