The latest offering from Britain's ambient rock kings is seventy minutes of subtle sonic mayhem. Beautiful jams, with a string and horn section driving the guitar feedback and drums rolls into oblivion. Often an entire piece is like the end of a 70's rock band's encore jam, making you wonder what the song that preceded it would have sounded like. Sonic Boom's outrt has influences from sources as varied as the Beatles and Laurie Anderson to Sonic Youth, but always appear to have stumbled on this territory in their own barefoot in the park sort of way. rne wine indeed.
