3.5 greatThe Katz brothers | January 5th 07

A thought provoking effort from a 2004 ambient duo, The Dead Texan soars high with epic, all most post-rock melodies and calming synthesizers, but falters slightly with an overlong tune towards the end and a decidedly low replay value. Sparse vocals make for an interesting listen, but instrumental A Chronicle of Early Failures Part 2 speaks louder than most songs ever could, without a single word. An excellent excellent CD for fans of Brian Eno, Sigur Ros and others along that line.

On average, this is a bit meandering and doesn't amount to very much, sadly. HOWEVER - one of my favourite ambient passages must be the end of A Chronicle Of Early Failures. Man that is captivating. Just wish the rest was...
