The musicianship is splendid in this production. It is a great soundtrack to those cold winter nights in the cabin alone in the woods.
I gave this album a listen because I heard "Torchlight" on NPR's All Songs Considered, and the main reason I bought the whole album was because the Valerie Project refers to their music as "acid folk". However, now that I've listened to the whole thing, I must say that this is a truly wonderful album. This music may not be for everyone (I find the track "Machine Room" a bit hard to listen to, for instance); the album is discordant at times, ethereal at others, but the talent of the musicians involved is consistently astounding. One thing I find particularly appealing is that a good portion of the tracks flow directly into the next track without a discernible break, marked only by a change in instrumentation or mood. This gives the album an overall feel of a grand orchestral masterwork divided into movements. All in all, a delightfully bizarre album, worth buying if you like expanding your musical horizons.
