SHACKLETON - Three EPs


SHACKLETON - Three EPs (Perlon Germany) Comentários: The august rhythm auteur Shackleton gives us all something to get very excited about with the release of his debut solo long player (of sorts) for the equally revered Perlon imprint. [...] The large majority of this material is fresh off the block, sounding like they came from a consistent set of sessions featuring the producer in a particularly febrile mood, like the restless drones and tense syncopations of 'Moon Over Joseph's Burial', and 'It's Time For Love', or the eastern influences cyclically bleeding through on 'Mountain Of Ashes' or closer 'Something Has Got To Give'. However, quite possibly the best track here is an old favourite, with the overcast vista of 'There's A Slow Train Coming' making a hugely welcome appearance to these ears. Without a doubt, we can say this is one of the albums of the year and should reward any investments twice over in sheer sonic thrills and an entirely unique experience you won't hear anywhere else. Bravo. in boomkat [Para Ouvir/Samples]

Não me parece que a qualidade do álbum corresponda à crítica positiva que se tem verificado nos últimos tempos [Boomkat, W& Sound, R.A., etc...], o meu instinto diz-me que as primeiras faixas conseguem prender o ouvinte, daí adiante a energia dissipa-se e repete-se num registo entediante. Admiro de facto que o autor tenha procurado inserir elementos minimais, orientais... contudo, perde-se por excesso de vazio musical, não porque o album se apresente como o oposto de um registo espacial, tendo como câmara a abstracçao introspectiva... parece-me inacabado e pouco inovador [ou imaginativo]. Espero que no futuro venha a dizer o contrário dos seus trabalhos. Tenham um bom dia.
