|4.0 excellent||nickwardmusic | December 21st 12|
An excellent collection of ambient music made by Adam Young. This music is perfect for sleeping, doing homework, or just relaxing. It is some of the most calm and soothing music that can be found

It just may too short for its own good, but The Albatross EP continually sustains its calm drive and beautiful short electronic landscapes with ease.

Strong atmospheric synths that are uniquely
layered. Young uses interesting tricks like
binaural beats to hook the listener. It's
rather short but if you enjoyed the the only
LP (aside from the unreleased Arctic) then
this will satisfy your Port Blue craving.
|4.5 superb||Supertails | August 11th 12|
I give this a 4.5/5...but really, the only thing stopping it from being 5/5 is the length. The EP is 10 tracks long, but only lasts a little over 15 minutes. Each song is such a huge concept and beautifully and brilliantly made, but each is so filled with potential and overflowing with layers that the short length is honestly not enough, and leaves it feeling unfinished, without closure. It leaves you craving a lot more, really. Where "The Airship" gave a lot of time with a lot of perfection, "The Albatross" gives you a taste and then leaves you hanging.rBut really, my only disappointment with this album could be taken as the ultimate concept: its only flaw is that there's not enough of it.
