The Sense of Dust and Sheer
Ambient / Noise is always hard to appriciate in writing such as this because a lot of releases blend together, as do songs on each release. It's more about the atmosphere and the production quality of it. This one gets special recognition because of it's ties to artists such as Ulver and Amenra, which in a way makes it stand out from the crowd. Dark, paranoid, layered, deep, unsettling and hauntingly beautiful.
Ambient Experimenteel Noise
The Ape of Naples
What Wikipedia calls "Experimental Post-industrial avant-garde electronic psychedelic avant-pop", I absolutely adore. At times Coil can be fun, lighthearted and dancing, at other times it's haunting like a Great Old One; utterly incomprehensible. Both are nice, but the Great Old Ones are always best
Avant-Garde Drone Electronica Experimenteel Noise
A strange collection of blackend noise. Most tracks create noise from chaos with a simple soundscape to start with, but the twists and turns between them tend to be exciting. Especially 'Hitori Bon Odori' is a nice track where the production is off, but it made me wonder if that wasn't exactly the point of it. Noise that makes you wonder about the point of noise, is noise worth mentioning.
