Michael Heumann The Library Discography Haunted Ink Haunted Ink Review Archive The Inkbottle

Released: 2000

I've reviewed several of EU's mp3 albums (including EU_Hard), but this is the fist disk from the Russian duo on the Art-Tek label. I've been waiting a very long time for this disk--well over a year. But I finally have my copy and I love the whole damn thing. True to the spirit of Russian electronic music, this little gem is filled with manic computer-based engineering (there are even close-ups of computer chips on the cover), soft and subtle melodies, and lots of "buzz" and "bleep" noises. What can I say? This is what I expected from EU--fuzzy noise and intricate sound-play, created with an expert's touch and an artist's sense of timing. Songs like "Clouds" are softer (hence the title) and more melodic than tracks on other EU disks, but the overall quality is first-rate. If you like this sort of thing, you need this disk; if not, then go get something else.
