Review of Ocean Fire [12k1046]

Raves (.COM)

If you’re looking for anything resembling traditional song structure, stop now. If your idea of chillout is ethereal grooves and such – new age music with enchanting vocals and Enya-esque melodies – cease and desist in your reading. But if you want some truly ambient stuff, some get-in-and-be-absorbed music that really fits the album title, then you’ve come to the right place. Willits + Sakamoto have really managed to capture the flavor of senses-surrounding ambience while still maintaining a kind of primordial musical quality. And the feeling really is one of eternal bliss under water. At times the music borders on the nirvana of white noise experimental, but never with abrasion – always keeping the transcendent pure ambience in command. Sublime soundscaping not to be missed. Five stars.
