Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In his thorough, enjoyable tome Generation Ecstasy, critic Simon Reynolds makes the case against those post-techno artists who use the sampler as an updated synthesizer, smearing their recontextualized sounds into an unrecognizable mess. At the same time, a lot of thoroughly blissed-out, experimental, and lovely music--from My Bloody Valentine's Loveless to Amp and Oval--is being created exactly this way. Matt Elliot, the sole musician in British act Third Eye Foundation, makes otherworldly, deliberately smudged recombinant sound that veers from gentle ambiance to nerve-racking drill & bass within the same track. As with the electronic music of Autechre and Pan Sonic, no one's going to be dancing furiously to You Guys Kill Me--the breakbeats are buried too deeply in the underwater murk or twisted into new extremes. But it's not arty nonsense, either: it's syncretic, new-school soundtrack music, the perfect accompaniment to an evening at home alone. --Mike McGonigal

Review

A dense weave of scissored rhythms and slithering tape loops that reads like a soundtrack to some great lost surrealist film -- Entertainment Weekly

Format: Audio CD
This CD is not for the untrained ear! I suggest listening to it first, with headphones, alone preferrably, and all in one sitting. The result is a dark and sometimes frightening mix of breakbeats and distorted electronic bass-lines, and occasional melodies.Spooky but yet beautiful.I only resent the fact that there are no vocal additions since this music pleads for poetry, however bizarre the outcome. A must buy for melancholic listeners..

I am astonished that this LP isn't better known. It must be because its coming from somewhere that is too difficult for many people to face. The use of sound loops and incredibly complex rhythms creates an extraordinary feeling of deja vu, yet the music is quite unique. An genuinely tender, violent, moving and disturbing record.
