Richard Bone: Tales from the Incantina

No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

If you enjoyed Bone’s Etherdome CD then prepare to again enjoy Bone’s creation of a liltingly lite massage of melodic ambience very much like Etherdome and it is filled with deep relaxations and swaying movements like a grand porch swing or a great vine each caught in slow-mo. "A Column of Glyphs" is my current fav, followed very closely by "Nine gods Nine", (Hear splendid glories of the keys! You will hear a Vangelis leaning as well), Bone composes all tracks, being inspired by the ancient Toltec philosophies of the soul.

Prepare your head for a good deal of channel panning on several pieces, how very Eno! B one, (which is Eno b backwards), really went deeply Eno on "House of Elegant Idols" which is my 3rd fav. Outro track is an ambient chamber-orch-ish lullaby.

As far as looking for the eerie and disturbed sounds, (which Richard Bone isWELLcapable of doing), bespeaking fierce Toltec warrior castes, human sacrifice, severed-head wall hangings, and ball games where losers were put to death — you won't find any of that in Bone's soft tread this go round. You should instead, listen for the craftsmanship, the artisan spirit, and the grandeur of their architecture . . . Toltecs at ease . . . perhaps light-headed after a therapeutic or ritualistically, recreational blood-letting.
