carbon based lifeforms: interloper

heterodoxphilomath

sweden's carbon-based lifeforms is a real fresh breath in the arena of ambient electronic music. true, none of the sounds or effects used are original - in fact, the carbon based lifeforms sound is uncannily reminiscent of 90s amient electronica acts such as b12, spacetime continuum and higher intelligence agency. carbon based lifeforms doesn't copy this sound and try to pass it off as their own but instead honours it by expanding and developing it in accordance with their individual touches and updated technology. moreover, the manner in which these same aural textures are recycled, reintroduced, reused, and presented anew is cutting-edge and contribue to a bold yet calming feel that encourages active listening. there is a lot of ambient electronic music out there that is epic and there is a good deal of ambient electronic music available that is tranquil but the way that carbon based lifeforms combine epic with relaxing go a long way to creating a rare gem indeed.

A Great Journey!: A Soundtrack for Your Mind

I love all the Carbon Based Life Forms CDs, but this one is the best. It's music for a film that will never be made. It has some great electronic patterns and melodies that build and soar. While traveling between active and mellow, the music holds my interest from the first to the last track (something I don't do as much these days). The melodic themes are strong and the rhythms are cool and continually developing. If I were to pick the top tracks they would be "Right where it ends" and "Supersede." But, my favorite track, and currently my favorite song is "M" with it's strong developing themes and energy. (I think I've listen to it at least ten times at once.) Great work. I look forward to the next one!

Superb album!!

This was perhaps my favourite album of 2010 and one of the best ambient-trace albums I've ever heard. Absolutely immersive, beautifully produced, the perfect balance between ambience and groove. The first half of the album is more uptempo and the latter half allows you to drift a little more. The CBL guys are extremely talented. If you are uncertain of buying - go listen to "Supercede" and "M" on youtube...my two favourite tracks, astonishingly brilliant! ENJOY!! :)

Best album by CBL

Joseph93

The others left me a bit cold, but they really hit their stride in this one and I loved it. A challenge: DL the title track and then try to keep yourself from getting the whole thing.

Wonderful ambient!

This really is a great album and reminded me of a few years ago when people were starting to call this sort of stuff 'modern classical'(hang your head in shame mr Orbit...). This is definitely in that league with subtle guitar and acoustic sounds more prominent. It just feels...accomplished and very emotive,especially Init which does, I admit, have a strange sounding sample but nevertheless brought me to tears on two occasions. There is alot of Vangelis in this album and if they ever make an update of Bladerunner then I know who they should call for the music score.Lush.

Solid bit of ambient

... although Track 5's vocal samples are too weird for me. This album was released May 5, 2010--don't know why eMusic didn't bother to include this information. And when are we going to be able to use things like paragraphs in reviews? Seriously now.
