Still Point
Highly Rated
Still Point CD (2007) 4 stars
CD $15.19 Buy It  Details
Still Point is Amber Asylum's first full-length album in nearly seven years (an EP was released in 2005), and it reveals a subtle but profound shift in musical direction from their earlier records. Leader Kris Force's musical roots are in the doom metal underground (in the '90s, she worked with scene pioneers Neurosis), and previous Amber Asylum records made that connection rather obvious. On ...

Bitter River Bitter River CD (2009)
CD $16.45 Buy It  Details
Amber Asylum albums Since the mid-'90s, San Francisco ensemble Amber Asylum has been stretching the boundaries of post-rock music into a kind of chamber goth sound that owes a little bit to metal, but just as much to folk (they've covered Black Sabbath, but also Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Poppies" and Richard & Linda Thompson's "The Great Valerio"). This new album shows the influence of group leader Kris Force's ...

With Amber Asylum, Kris Force continues to explore the realms of dark, post-classical, post-gothic music. She creates dark, melancholy visions out of cellos, violins, bass, percussion, and her Nico-like, cold-soul vocal delivery. Substituting stringed instruments for the guitar places Amber Asylum at the intersection of high art and underground culture. The word "black" appears in four out of seven song names here, and the ...

Kris Force is the alluring siren of Amber Asylum. She seduces the listener into a dark but inviting world, drawing from wells of ambient, goth, and classical music. Force's music is ambient in that it is an ethereal, floating world of patiently phrased lines backed by a comfortable wall of electronic drone. Amber Asylum waxes gothic in that they can introduce a Bauhaus-like meeting ...
Natural Philosophy of Love Natural Philosophy of Love CD (1997)

If Lisa Germano, the Cocteau Twins, Julee Cruise, and Dead Can Dance ever collaborated on an album, the results would likely sound quite similar to the second album by San Francisco dream pop collective Amber Asylum. Leader Kris Force dominates the proceedings with her icy soprano vocals and haunting violin work, but these focal points are adrift in a hazy, slowly shifting soundscape of electronic keyboards, heavily processed guitars, minimal drums, and, of course, buckets and buckets of reverb. Force was clearly heavily influenced by This Mortal Coil's similarly ghostly It'll End in Tears, as made obvious by the mournful, elegiac cover of Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Poppies" -- on which Force is a vocal dead ringer for Elizabeth Fraser -- which ends the album. (Ivo Watts-Russell is ...
