5.0 classicKaramazov | November 26th 12

An absolutely brilliant album. The sounds Hassell gets out of his trumpet are other-worldly. Eno's sticky hands are all over this release also. A very advanced album and with the use of "tribal" rhythms, you could call this the first "World Music" release. Unfortunately, artists who mimicked this album missed the point and came across as smug middle-class tree-huggers.
