3.0 out of 5 stars Nice In-betweener, September 3, 2002
This review is from: Seven Letters from Tibet (Audio CD)
7 LETTERS won't be in any TD's fan's top ten, but hardly as bad as some of the negative reviews suggest. It's a mellow Hearts-of-Spacey work, a little haunting and a bit sugary. Each piece dips a toe into a potentially enchanting or exciting realm.
I wish it hadn't been split into 7 separate tracks with fancy titles; every track could easily and smoothly seque into the next; I know this sounds like armchair editing, but give it a listen on a good system and you'll hear what I mean; every track "artificially" closes when it could easily melt into the next, forming a solid [liquid?] journey.
If you look back in their discography, TD's "decline" began with their decision to focus on packaging, breaking works into marshmallow-treat-sized bits. Ok for soundtracks but not for extended works. TD has a long & faithful following (today, fans like us are simply referred to as "niche marketing.")
In short: 7 LETTERS is pleasantly meditative, even romantic, and may grow on you with repeated listenings. But it will leave the die-hards longing for the days of STRATOSFEAR, LOGOS and POLAND.
