Album Capsules--Mountains




I get the feeling that very few people are into instrumental electro-acoustic music these days, but if you ever decide to give it a try, Centralia will be like an ocean with the solitary goal of drowning your ass.  At times, they sound like the bands Rachel's, Sigur Ros, Spiritualized, and even occasionally like Floyd's monster 24-minute track "Echoes."  If these bands don't do it for you, this one probably won't either.  But I think I'll be replaying it often.  It's not a chill-out album; some of the tracks get grandiose like an orchestra.  "Circular C" is below.  If you try headbanging to it, you have issues that a music review cannot fix.


  1. this review has the best final line to any review i have read. i like sigur ros. i will try this. thanks.

  2. Thanks. Maybe I should've rated it higher. I keep replaying it.
