NON, "RECEIVE THE FLAME"

Boyd Rice has indeed returned to the purity of the innocent with this release. Loops and noises live and breathe on this record, unharmed, naturally flowing, swelling and crunching in what is my favorite full-lengther from Boyd for quite some time.
Boyd Rice has indeed returned to the purity of the innocent with this release. Loops and noises live and breathe on this record, unharmed, naturally flowing, swelling and crunching in what is my favorite full-lengther from Boyd for quite some time. I'm shocked at the beauty of "Solitude," which is due out as a single at some point in the near future from Mute UK. What they plan to make out of the song I'm anxious to hear. There's no screams, there's no rants, no guest speeches nor offending symbolism. Boyd's talents shine brightly as his seamless cut up loops and distortions gracefully turn the sources into brilliant new tunes, along with the help of some brass, string and organ players in spots. The artwork is gorgeous and I'm quite impressed. A reader sounded in describing this as "Phil Spector meets Boyd Rice" but I tend to disagree. While there are some pleasant chimes and melodies, thankfully there are no "sha-dings" to be found singing along. Time to buy yourself a late Christmas present as we all know moms just aren't hip enough to enclose a Boyd Rice related CD in your stocking.
