This is my first review and I really only am doing so to balance the score on this album since it is truly a masterpiece that really defies genre and context and all of the other weightless criteria that critics cling to so desperately to try to understand art. The music here is pure feeling given texture. You can practically hear the breathing of life within the washes of sound. I have never heard an artist use space and silence so convincingly and the openness becomes an instrument in and of itself. It is this mix of the organic and electronic that really makes this a special album. Put on good headphones, close your eyes, and float downstream....

"See Birds" was a great opener and seemed to promise future greatness. But this album really doesn't live up to their potential, especially the first track that has horrid Minnie Mouse sped-up/pitch-shifted vocals. (Why oh why???) It sounds like above-average ambient electronica, and there is a lot of that out there these days. I thought I'd found something better, but alas, not yet. I'd recommend Pavohaarju (? spelling) for a similar etheral sound that is more melodic and haunting and organic. Also the amazing Biosphere's "Shenzou", or Caretaker/Leyland Kirby. All of these artists have a less overtly electronic feel, which is beginning to repel me after so much of it. Maybe I'm just of the wrong generation... I almost feel like I wasted my money on this. Maybe it has yet to grow on me, but this genre is getting old at this point.

Since the birth of electronic music, endless sub-genres have emerged from its origin. Several examples of the different forms of electronic music analyzed in class include Musique concrete, Electronische music, Thai folk electronic music, various forms of synthesizers, etc. Modern electronic music is still involving, producing countless genres such as Dubstep, Chillwave, Future Garage, etc. One sub-genre of electronic music that caught my attention was Witch House. Witch house gives off an eerie vibe, using myriad forms of synths, combined with a hard bass and twisted vocals. One of the most prominent and promising artists of this genre is 20 year old Alec Koone who goes by his stage name as Balam Acab. With only one EP released in 2010, Koone released his debut album in 2011, called Wander/Wonder. With the association of these new components seen in Witch House, Balam Acab's album, Wander/Wonder, also exemplifies partial and distorted elements seen in Musique concrete, especially within the works of Pierre Schaffer and Pierre Henry.
Unlike many Witch House genre albums, Wander/Wonder does not show much of this scary and frightening sound. Instead, Balam Acab gives its own style to it by representing more of an appealing and refreshing feel, coupled by its dark and eerie mood set within the original genre's standards. To describe the album in one word, I would use the word, "pretty". Its pulsating rhythms created by moody and 80's synthesizers along with cut up vocal tracks gives the album a pure and aesthetically beautiful feeling to it. If the various elements used in this album were stripped down to its bones, Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaffer's works behind Musique concrete could definitely be heard.

The only thing i didnt like was that the CD came in a paper box case. But other than that i am very happy with the order. The album is a favorite of mine and it came in perfect condition and in a timely manner. The artwork is also kinda neat too. I'd reccomend the album to anyone who likes gentle, swirly, heavier, deeper types of styles. Its too bad this album had so few songs. :\

one of my favorite albums and was excited to add it to my vinyl collection finally, arrived super warped and when i attempted to play it (obviously) was mostly skips and pops. didn't have the time to return it due to my schedule, more than likely my mail providers fault, or i'd like to hope, but still going to rate this only two stars.
