If you like Shpongle or pretty much any type of psychedelic electronic music, you should definitely give this album a buy!

Yggdrasil stands out in my library as one of my top psychedellic/electronic albums.

Yggdrasil in Norse Mythology is the World Tree. That said, this album which doesn't sound norse or anything remotely viking, is probably one of the best psychedelic albums out there. If you like Shpongle, Entheogenic, Slackbaba, etc. then this album is a must have in your collection. Though all tracks are superb, Headfoam Jack seems to stand out for me as it's right up there on the trippy eastern trancy sound scale. A truly good collection that takes you a trip with or without the help of chemicals :D

I bought this on a whim not too long ago at Amazons recommendation. They nailed it! I love most everything Simon Posford has produced and this album is so close to his production style I swear it's an elaborate ruse or an alternative creative output for him. Prose Edda isn't the sort of album you can appreciate as background music at work, in your ear buds, the first play through. The more attention you give it, the more awesome it sounds (not unlike something Posfordian!)

With respect to YGGDRASIL, I have to say that references to Simon Posford isn't a bad thing and shouldn't be taken as ding against your individuality and/or its creative offering. I can't speak for anyone else reviewing Prose Edda, but this recording is top-notch and Mr. Posford (and co's) releases are some of the shining examples of what's possible in the weird world of music and sound-manipulation. I prefer music in headphones and for anyone that's in the same boat you won't be disappointed. This is an awesome album, well worth the money, and a HUGE and wonderful surprise.

Let me first say that I stumbled upon this [debut] album by accident. I say that because it proves to me yet again
that some of the best things happen by accident. This is truly no exception.

Prose Edda is one of the most interesting albums I have heard in a while. The creativity knows no bounds. All the tracks flow right into each other very well but they are done so in a way where it wouldn't sound weird if you just skipped from one to
another[but you won't want to]. There are only so many albums anyone can likely claim to listen to from start to finish and
not want to skip tracks.

This is one of those albums. There is no reason to skip a track because there is no bad music on this album. "Imaginative" and "Creative" is the least I can say for how well this album is put together. Even the album art is interesting.

Whether you like Psybient or not you owe it to yourself to give this a chance. Prose Edda is truly worth the money and I would be ecstatic to hear another album from them in the future.

Like a previous reviewer, I stumbled across this album by accident. I purchased it based only on the initial reviews and wasn't disappointed. Very nice. If you like Shpongle, Phutureprimitive, Ott, etc. you will be happy.

I came across this accidentally awhile ago, and it had been sitting in my wish list for months. I finally decided to pick it up, and I am very happy that I did. Those on here who compare this music to Shpongle are wrong, and also correct. Yggdrasil sounds very little like Shpongle, at least not to me. However, this disc displays the same level of technical wizardry, wild creativity, trippy mesmerizing beats, and total disregard to conformity that Shpongle is known for. There are a few small bits here and there that are somewhat reminiscent of Shpongle, but make no mistake - the disc is not trying to "be the new Shpongle" or copying from Posford in any way. That said, I would imagine that if you like Shpongle, then you would also enjoy this disc.

There isn't a bad song on this album, although the three remixes of other acts are the weakest points on it. Headfoam Jack is surely the strong point of the disc, and while listening to it for the first time I thought that if ever there was a song in this genre of music that I liked better than any Shpongle track, it is Headfoam Jack. Yeah, it is that good. If you have read this far, then don't wait - go ahead and buy it. I got it on disc for the highest quality sound possible, so I can't comment on the MP3 version, and the clarity of sound, production, mastering, and mix are all absolutely top notch. It's a shame that this is the only album that Yggdrasil has recoded. I hope they make more music. I'd buy anything that they are willing to release.

This is an exceptional debut album. For anyone who enjoys the likes of Shpongle, Massive Attack, O.T.T. or any of the Simon Posford projects. I enjoyed every song on this album and found that it has great replay-ability. The sampling, and attention to detail that went into this album puts it easily in my top 5. The album cover/inside art is also extremely well done. This is a class act and I can't wait for their next release.

This cd is a great head trip to listen to with all the lights off and a music visualizer going. There are lots of different layers to each song and never ceases to bore the listener throughout the entire journey. This album has a very similar feel to the latest Sphongle offerring or Phutureprimitive, yet manages to form its own distinctive sound through the use of very deep hypnotic baselines, ethnic instruments doodling in the background and mingling with thick and shiny acid synths in the background.

My favorite part about the album is the fact that all of the songs flow into each other so it forms a cohesive landscape upon which each song springs from, similar to pretty most of Simon Posford's work.

If you like Shpongle or pretty much any type of psychedelic electronic music, you should definitely give this album a buy!
