I have liked JH for a long time now. I kind of liked his last CD but I just can't get into the "glitchy" sound he seems to be lost in right now. I was compelled to write this review because the first 3 tracks on 7 gulps of air sound like they are defective...but they probably aren't.
The last two tracks are pretty good and remind me of the good ol' days.
This guy is only getting better
Love the songs on here. "Seven Gulps Of Air" is a great addition to his recent album, and the Tunng and Geese remixes are very good as well. The more ambient version of "Drifting" is fantastic. The only downside to this EP is the horrible Tom Middleton remix. It's amazing that someone who was once so great can be so shockingly mediocre. His trance mixes that he's been pumping out for the past 10 years are getting painfully tiresome.
I love it when artists have nailed their sound down already, but want to start experimenting. I feel that this is the approach that Jon Hopkins is taking now. This e.p. (of sorts) takes a stride in the direction of Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead), think "There Will Be Blood" Soundtrack. Lots of offbeat riffs, and catchy trance type ambient electronica. It's important to note that 3 of the tracks are remixes, so for Jon Hopkins fans, this record is a must. I'm not sure that anything that Jon puts out can be bad, because his music is simply art. Not many artists today write music from the soul, but Jon's heart is transparent through his music. This record is just an advancement of that. I highly recommend it.
