A whirlwind tour of the recent history of the various mutating strains of ambient-leaning experimental electronic, from beatless soundscapes to electro, dub, and noise. Like his celebrated collaboration with Max Eastley on Buried Dreams, Toop's focus is on geography, assembling landscapes of sound and reference that repay exploration over passive listening. An occasionally difficult listen, but usually worth it.
