Jack Anderton - The Moment, for fans of FSOL/The Orb
http://ia360702.us.archive.org/18/it...omentfront.jpg

This is possibly my favourite release of the year so far, comes particularly recommended for fans of FSOL/The Orb/similar sample-based ambient stuff, and I've heard BoC comparisons to the second half of the album.

"Expanding on the his earlier ambient, atmospheric electronic music, The Moment
starts in a calm unprepossessing manner with 3 ambient tracks before settling into
a pattern of lightly toned ambient electronic music with a slightly poppy theme. One
element of the album is the extended use of untampered field recordings which
complement the ambience greatly. The album does change in tone and genre from
beginning to end but is held together via the samples and melodies that lend the
record an airy tone, occasionally wandering into sadder, more wistful ambience.
Jack's finest work to date can be found on The Moment, and the record comes
highly recommended, particularly to fans of The Orb and The Future Sound of London."

Thanks Ross. This is an absolutely brilliant album, and it lives up to all the expectations that are loaded on it in the words above. Its a keeper and a repeat listener. Better than some of the stuff that The Orb and FSOL have released in the last decade.

To compare this release to the above artists should concern me, but it doesn't. To each his own.
