Kyle Bobby Dunn's new release 'A Young Person's Guide To...' is quite simply a master piece of drone. Since his last release 'Fervency' Kyle's music has matured into what has to be considered some of the very best music in this genre. With over 2 hours of music including many tracks over 11 minutes in length you are guaranteed to be in for a long and beautiful journey.
There will be inevitable similarities made with the music of Stars Of The Lid but where SoTL has a grandiose, orchestral sometimes cinematic feel Kyle's music has a softer, warmer , more mature feel. Kyle has somehow managed to blend the soft ambient elements of Brian Eno's music with the swirling minimal orchestral movements found in Masterpieces such as Stars Of The Lid's '...And Their Refinement Of The Decline' and Album of the Year, Eluvium's 'Copia' into what is a rare album of ambient/drone perfection that deserves to be an award winning album for 2010.
I can't recommend this album enough, it deserves a 5/5 star rating. As a long time follower and admirer of drone music I can confidently say this will take pride of place in the collection of any fans of ambient drone.
I should also add that the CD is available at a very reasonable price (and to my delight a very quick shipping time!)
