Absinthe album for sale Product Description

Absinthe album for sale by Naked City / John Zorn was released Feb 20, 1994 on the Avant label. Naked City's final album is by far its most puzzling and enigmatic. Absinthe buy CD music Downtown maverick John Zorn's compositional workshop for a rock band completed its run of seven albums with this quiet, almost ambient, collection. Some of the pieces, such as "Une Correspondance" and "Artemesia Absintheium," get somewhat noisy, with industrial clattering, insect-like whines, feedback, and complex noises in layers. Absinthe CD music contains a single disc with 9 songs.   ...See Full Description

Absinthe is arguably the least interesting of the Naked City albums. Focus this time is ambient/electro-acoustic music. While it is good to see Zorn trying to tackle yet antoher genre, it just doesn't work: the soundscapes are uninteresting and nothing really sticks with you. I'm quite a lover of this kind of music, but I've heard far better examples. For completists and Zorn-collectors of course essential, but others are encouraged to try an album by Brian Eno or Paul Schutze, to name a few.
