5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best ethereal albums I've heard in years, March 31, 2001
This review is from: To Dream, Perchance to Sleep (Audio CD)
As one of the most recent additions to the Projekt family of drifting ethereal music, this is one of the best releases I've heard on the label since landmark albums like "Idylls" by Love Spirals Downwards in 1992. Frolic's graceful, shimmering atmospherics sound like a hallucinatory sleepwalk through the greenest depths of the ocean or the mossy banks of a waterfall in a rainy forest. It's easy to make atmospheric, etheral music if you use the right effects, but it's not easy to make it sound as original, fresh and inspired as this album. They keep it simple, too...synths, some guitars provide additional texture, and a beautiful female voice dances along the waves. Vocalist Kelly O'Brien has the perfect voice for this kind of music...light, gentle, yet slightly sombre. Several songs, like "Forever Forlorn," have male vocals with a very similar understated, gentle quality. The individual tracks are usually less like songs than like different parts of a dream...changing from dark to light, distant to intimate, sad to hopeful. One image that comes to mind when listening to the cd is of someone underwater -- not necessarily drowning, but watching sunlight come pouring through the deep green water. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Love Spirals Downwards, Soul Whirling Somewhere, With Sirens Entranced, Siddal, Cocteau Twins...fans of ambient and atmospheric music should also feel at home with this album.
