   Environmental Frankfurt      1.08.22

  all tracks written by Pete Namlook and Charles Uzzell-Edwards

Aaah, well. I suppose not everything released on the prolific Fax label can be wonderful, but this is just awful.

Basically, what you hear when you play this CD is a recording of Charles Uzzel-Edwards walking about in Frankfurt. From time to time you hear an instrument, perhaps there to remind you that it is actually an album. Maybe I missed the boat, but I found very little of musical value here. Rating: 0 out of 5

(review by Ian Ainslie)

This is one hell of a subtle Fax release - the gentle flowing environmental sounds of the city have been compiled with such skill and fine touch. I was listening last night in the 35 degree heat, and the sounds of the magpies and other birds merged into the music so aptly I had to turn down the stereo to check it weren't some german birds. Subtle pulses, clicking rhythms that prefigure Atom, gentle shifts of focus and direction. Beautiful.
