"As one aflame laid bare by desire proves that melancholy waters run deep. Perhaps not as gloomy, and certainly not as maudlin and angry, as some previous releases, angst as art is still the source of fuel for Rosenthal and crew's perpetual dark flame. In fact, the art aspect is intensified as Sam laces threads from dadaist Marcel Duchamp's artworks and literature into Black tape's gauzey fabric. Think modern Gothic chamber music with some ambient/electronic overtones." Read the full review at: www.spiderbytes.com/ambientrance/bla-aoa.htm"
Whether this music is “gothic,” “ethereal” or “ambient” is in the eyes of the beholder. The truth is that black tape creates incredibly passionate music incorporating all these genres, yet transcending them with a musical poignancy and lyrical insight that is striking.
