5.0 out of 5 stars the shimmering sounds, September 15, 2009

This review is from: Shimmering Hour (Audio CD)
Wisp has a truckload of quality tunes in his back catalogue, and this one is no exception, though it is exceptionally good. What an appropriate title too, as the music on this disc is so alive and exploding with magical sounds just begging to infiltrate your ears and take you to a special place. The cover art sets the tone as well, as the melodies and compositions remind me of the Autumn season and the spectacular, bitter sweet changes taking place amidst the forrests and the natural world throughout certain parts of North America.

Yes, sure the "drill n' bass" sound has been done often, but Wisp, much like Squarepusher, still manages to take it to new, glorious heights. In a sense, this Rephlex release plays somewhat like a Wisp resume, showcasing the man's strengths and abilities in their many forms, yet is very much a cohesive release. Lots of wonderous synths mix and mingle with the brain-tickling beats making for an exciting, adventurous, emotion-fueled lp. Forget genres, styles, etc - the truth is, this is dazzlingly good music from one of the overlooked masters of our time. It would be a shame to pass this one over.
