Best Releases of 2007 Eric Nielsen 1.2.8 (In no particular order)
1. Six Organs of Admittance - Shelter from the Ash
Sometimes gentle, other times all-encompassing, this album wraps it tendrils around your fifth chakra like the clouds kiss the sun.
Akron/Family - Love is Simple
A sacred ritual deep in a jungle on the mosquito coast or up the river Col. Kurtz is traveling. A darkness addressed that spooks and shakes the church upside down.
3. Entrance - Prayer of Death
Pleasure, power, peace, passion. Ride the wicked worm, bless those unsacred and meld into another form.
4. Om - Pilgrimage
A repetive mantra that burned holes in my soul. I played this over and over
Titan - A Raining Sun of Light and Love For You and You and You
High school memories of Yes propel this album throughout the Universe of my existence.
6. Fantastic Magic - Witch Choir
The sweet mystical experimental experience beckons you in on this angelic cassette tape release of Witch Choir by locals Fantastic Magic. Beware the beginner, laud the herald and listen. It's challenging, tempting and sometimes torturing before laying out the soulful resolves.
7. Robert Wyatt - Comicopera
Embolden your self into memories of places and times sacred and noble. The voice resonates with life experience.
8. Angels of Light - We Are Him
Burns into you over repeated listening; much like a Cormac McCarthy book. Beautifully scorched existentialism dripping creepy hope in the pristine and powerful desert, "there is nothing to fear because nothing is real."
9. The Assemblehead in Sunburst Sound - Ekranoplan
Sitar juiced melodic rock, heavier than a death in the family. Scored repeated listenings in my circle.
- Smoking Peace With a Burning Crow
This ambient dronathon is the perfect companion for the golden end of days.
A deeply meditative suite of 4 improvisations
