Product Notes

I don't know what it is about this release, but it is so beautiful to just relax and collapse into some weird trance between music and noise, silence and poetry, some weird nexus of time and space, love and hate - and in the very middle, where everything collides, there resides Radium 88. I don't know what it is about them, and I really don't even know how to accurately describe them, but I know that they bring a smile to my face, sit back, lay down and zone out. There is nothing original here, per se, but the combination of unoriginal thoughts have a tendency to create something unique. Regardless of your musical preference I would highly recommend picking up this release, darkening your bedroom, laying back and just drifting away. This is music to fall asleep to and I love it. (Allalom.com) The various working methods of Radium88 result in a varied album with several different styles of music. The opening track, The Deep End, is a short, ambient, opening of the album. The title track Metamorphosis, is a downtempo tune with beautiful ethnic-influenced vocals which would fit well in one of the various lounge compilations that are out there. And another show of variation is the third track, which has a much more electronic feel (spacey house), but with beautiful string arrangements. And the variation continues throughout the album. This makes the album very interesting to listen to. The use of vocals, both male and female, and the use of real instruments such as guitars, combined with electronic sounds gives the album a very mature sound. This could well attract a bigger audience sooner or later. My personal preference goes to the downtempo tracks Metamorphosis and Dust. Both are well-done tracks with nice vocals. Very solid tunes. (Electronic Music World) "radiant passages of floaty, analog-sounding Eno-isms.... solemn female operatic voices create neoclassical flavor .....dancefloor-friendly beats...... acoustic colors (strummed guitar, melodica, violin)....... a truly strange take on electronica....... Sometimes melancholy, sometimes disconcertingly weird, Metamorphosis is a profoundly confusing voyage." (Splendid Magazine) More spacey than that blonde cheerleader you used to sit behind while asking pointed questions in health class, more cheeky than a squirrel packing heat for winter, and possibly even more cynical than the Democratic party on the state of the nation, Radium 88 hauls an album chock-full of black hole, android dream soundtrack. Splendidly plugged-in, Metamorphosis pairs delicate Mazzy Star with sinister Depeche Mode style retro-hyper-mod for vocals, angular guitar chord explosions over loungy smoky melodies crossed with trance-tech Paul Van Dyk would admire. Purely ambient? No. Purely genre? Definitely not. But purely anything usually doesn't entertain, and there's no question Radium88 can. (Indie-Music.com)
