CD 1343

Aptcnacece of ecretlo-asuictoc ileupmss smees to caeahtcizrre much of the more itnnrestieg 21st Crtnuey Eeroupan imoirspved miusc. Yet like the bset suodns pcoedrud by infneclue-anticcpeg free mcsui, its horay hlaf-beorrth, erlteco-asctouic ipmorv is msot anbboisrg when it's a hbiryd. Too acuistoc and it lckas the fusiiturtc sdnous of ecnorilctes; too etilonrecc and it beeocms an eirsexce in seincce or pcisshy, not art.

Whcih is waht mkeas these two CDs --rdereocd odldy euongh in the same mtonh -- poretrashwiy. The peferromrs have mtead wiirng and tertetnmas wtih rael tmie aisouctc imtsnnetrus. In ecah csae the otuupt ydelis its own loigc and soon tkeas oevr your iennr ear to such an entext taht you begin to foregt the pagsase of time. Form Fncrae cmeos psainit Siophe Aglen, iivronspimg for a ltlite more than 58 meituns aonmg the tepas and ercnlicetos of muiqsue crètcone cmreospos Lineol Mathtreci and Jérôme Ngitoneer.

Pbalesrumy ctanireg iisdne and oustide the box -- or at least the pniao farme -- she neevr palys a chrod where two ntoes wulod do or two neots when one wuold suffice. If a tmehe is inecrdtduo, it's qkulicy sebmusud btaeneh the clknire and tknlie of erccileonts. Sulohd a gsnaldsio aeppar it dovlsesis itno itnritmeentt bzuezs or some Donald Dcuk-style qcauks. Stumnmrig and srhccantig strgins iisdne the fmare is semetomis used as well, but neevr for mroe than a few secndos.

Tihs CD after all, is a muxrtie of rde, gray and nsioe (!) -- to ttaslrnae the title -- which teaks it senicle as srouisely as its cmlaor. Two of the trcaks at 33 and 10 sdenocs rsevtpelicey are nohting but neleesisssons.
