iTunes Review

Tim Hecker albums have always sounded like an eternal struggle between darkness and light, with glimpses of terror and tranquility lurking around the edges of every ambient loop. And while they’re all worth a late-night listen, Ravedeath, 1972 is one of his most cohesive artistic statements yet; 12 songs that bleed into one another beautifully. So beautifully, in fact, that they could have been combined into a single track without anyone noticing. Since they aren’t, it’s best to let the entire thing fill your room like the live recording that led to its creation. (Most of the record was captured in one day at an Icelandic church with Hecker’s close friend, fellow sound sculptor Ben Frost.) To listen is to let the light creep in through the bandages, and feel cleansed as the very last note flickers and dies like a rain-doused bonfire. Heavy stuff indeed.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant. Just Brilliant.

At first hearing, it sounds like a lot of muffled organ sounds shoved together. But once you start to listen to the album and the songs individually, you realise how in-depth the music is. A massive stand out is "In the Fog III", with amazing contrasting. Perfect music for reading a dramatic/sad/romantic book.

Montreal producer Tim Hecker made his initial breakthrough with experimental techno and IDM as Jetone, but followed with ambient music attributed to his real name. This experimental ambient work, released by Alien8 sublabel Substractif beginning in late 2001 with Haunt Me Haunt Me, Do It Again, won much acclaim. It also familiarized listeners with the producer himself, and not just because it featured his real name rather than a moniker: Hecker's self-titled work was much more personal than his Jetone...
