Computer music indeed.

Picture it being the year 3673. All nature and wild life is completly destroyed, replaced by mammoth concrete and steel structures. The only bits of 'nature' left are completly mechanic. The birds are robotic. Trees are holographic. Water is holographic. Rodents are robots, bears, deer, crickets, mice...and each of them makes computer generated noises. This is what this album sounds like. It sounds like robotic birds chirping, fake water flowing, crickets...doing whatever they do. Then throw in some microphone feed back and glitches beacuse the computer program is crashing.

Weil is a very experimental peice of work. I quite like it, but I also found it boring - and annoying at times. Some parts I really loved, others I hated. At times I felt like I was listening to a Gordon Hempton gone digital album, others Merzbow. I shouldnt say I quite like it, I should say I very much love it - but also hate it. I love it for being so random and I hate it for being so irritating. It's a must hear.

Allthough it's not really ambient, at least not by definition, expect the sounds to be ambience when you put it on. You'll forget you have it on after a while, that is untill a really high pitched...bunch of noises hits you. But don't worry, that usually stops after a few seconds, then gradually builds back up to be irritating again.

Love it or hate it, this album kicks ass.
