Review Short Version Both tracks gave me clarity of how Persephone would have felt when Hades brought her into the netherworld. That is the most accurate description I can give you for a brief review, and I am banking on you actually knowing the whole story of Persephone. If you don't my longer version verbalizes it better (of course you may want to read the longer version anyway) or you can google it-although somehow methinks most know the story. Long Version To start, I enjoyed both tracks, I love the fact Chris managed to both defy and embrace his Sickness work (which is more in your face) with the subtle textures of ambient noise. I also feel it is aptly described as "One Thought Over A Thousand Years", because it did provoke me to think, amongst the other range of emotions it inspired. As with the Sickness work, there is that underlying rythm-again, not even sure if he would realize the patterns exist, but they are there. This however was more of a dizzy ride with peaks and valleys, one moment allowing me to feel completely relaxed and then out of nowhere causing that shivery, hair raising electric feeling to course through me (yeah, I played it loud via my Ipod to block out everything else). It was very surreal and eeerie, however moments of being ethereal slipped in-especially one part in the first track that I swore sounded like he sampled a cat's purr. It made me feel volatile with the range of sheer cold fear and then ephemeral moments that were almost hypnotic, but then promptly broken up to keep it from being monotonous. The overall feel was the Persephone feeling, nervous, cold and exciting-not that in your face exciting, that anticipation exciting. And (although I hate using this analogy with him because it may seem cliche) there were moments that gave me the same sounds being akin to a colony of bats just before they rush into flight, it exists that noise, just very high pitched and inhuman. Eerie and disconcerting, definitely phantasmagoric-particularly the point where it has this harsh screechy wail matched with a sharp, almost teapot whistle screech noise. I was in a waking nightmare mode, it gave me that as an emotion and masochist I am, I didn't want to stop listening. Hollow echoes, resounding clicks and white noise, quiet noise to nervous noise-kept me on my toes and the overall sensation was oddly pleasant, like when you're taking a shower and you let the water go one extreme temperature that endorphine level of pain-that kind of pleasant. It put me in various moods at different points ranging from cold fear, to relaxed to intimate. So yes sir, I can say I liked it.
