If I?m not mistaken, there?s no sign on the packaging, this is the first edition of Taiga Remains? ?Ribbons of Dust? 3? cd-r series. I know part 3 has been released already so maybe this review is somewhat behind on schedule. No need to front though, this one is just as magnificent as the other two and just forgetting about it would be a crime against the drone community and that?s not the way we do things over here.
Alex Cobb is the man behind Taiga Remains, as well as the superb Students Of Decay label, and it should be a known fact that the man knows his ways with the powers of drone. What we get here is a psychdrone with oceanic proportions, guitars processed into freeflowing waves of bliss. It?s peaceful but it also has a strong melancholic out of place feel to it. Emotions waiting to be answered but at the same time getting cut off by the relatively short length of the album which is approximately 15 minutes. I guess you can?t always have it your way and if Cobb keeps it high quality like this there?s no reason to complain about lenght, just repeat the damn thing. 7/10 -- Joris Heemskerk (23 January, 2007)
