Wiederverffentlichung des schnen Albums von 2002, welches bisher nur auf Vinyl erhltlich war...

"Repress of the album packaged in a custom made gatefold case and fully remastered by Randall Frazier at Helmet Room studios. A shalabast'r tyde, like unto pantent leather shoes, really doth shyne up. Reflected in the waves are twinkling stars; a smirking harvest moon; herds of passing clouds & hazey pink dots, like legends burned against eyelids after a long stare into an errant brightness. Ka-Spel's penchant for musical procreation is further fathered via this, another outstanding experimental recording. Fading into a subatomic rumble, 'Shalabast'r' sneaks into a quiet Edwardian waltz that sneaks into a fragmented sampling autoclave. If nothing else, Edward's always been a little sneaky. Maybe that's why he wears sneakers." [label info]

..Slowly he seems to be pushing his solo music forward by going more and more for instrumental music, and move away from the song structures that were a feature of his older solo work. From the intimate sing-song-keyboard thing, he seems now interested in apocalyptic sound fields, dense, dark but always with a dot of light at the end of the tunnel. [Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly]
