Cobalt Blue Review

by Jason Ankeny

Recorded in collaboration with luminaries including Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, Cobalt Blue possesses a depth and complexity which standard ambient recordings lack. Much more than a mere showcase for the technical wizardry of Michael Brook's signature "infinite guitar" sound, the album absorbs a vast range of influences spanning from Middle Eastern rhythms to spaghetti western soundtracks to forge a series of shimmering dreamscapes as provocative as they are evocative.
