From the moment you hear the opening right up until the last notes of Repose In Blue have faded away, this album envelopes you in waves of ambient bliss. Haunting pianos, horns and trumpets keeping the listener afloat in the waves of this vast sea of an album. A truly beautiful expression of feeling and natural beauty.
A gorgeous record from start to finish, I now see what people were rtalking about (yes Aids you can say I told you so). Each beautiful rmovement is able to strike an emotional chord with the listener as ryou are taken over by the massive soundscapes, like a blanket of rawesome. rCudos Eluvium, you've created one hell of a record
Without being pretentious, Matthew Cooper creates a record of unmistakable beauty. Full of sweeping melodies and lush string arrangements, Copia is the perfect escapist album. Let it take you where it will.
I can see why this is so enjoyed, but I just don't think it's my style, which probably prevented me from really getting behind this. There are a few stand out tracks that really peaked my interest to actually get this disc, and it is quite soothing and calming...definitely good if you're in the mood for something like that. My only beef with the record is that perhaps while striving for consistency here, the result became redundancy.
