Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-04-26
Mostly tribal-ambient if creepy experimental electronic sound washes featuring (but not centered around) soundbites associated with Bush, the “war”, all the usual suspects. “Tribal rhythms, dark drones, electronic textures, guitar washes, vocal chants and field recordings blend together…”

1) chill creepy noise with soundbites about Hussein, Bush, etc about lead up to US aggression, “do not destroy oilwells”, 24 minutes slow build, gets louder with buried tom tom beat, war drums, noisey loopy at end, very nice if long
2) “the great beast”, soundbite is depressing, a tad conspiracy, but sorta true, over dark ambient wash, chill, then halfway it changes with commentary about Bush in the UN, depleted uranium and electro noise, Bin Laden connections
3) looping middle eastern feel with chant, drums, shifts to an electro drone midway, radio friendly length
4) distorted treated conga type drum, tribal with foreign voices
5) tribal percussion slowly gets buried by dark drones and washes, super hypnotic and beautiful, eventually turning noisey and electro
6) super deep dark drone, absolutely stunning, narcotic and hypnotic
