Albarn’s never been shy of a big concept, and has always had the talent to back it up, so when he decided to pull together an album “originally intended as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland” we never for a second thought it would be anything less than brilliant.

And brilliant it is – poetic songwriting, accompanied by resonant drones and spartan accompanying instruments. The overall effect is stunning – a glacially paced & gorgeously orchestrated set that reaffirms just why Albarn is one of the best songwriters out there.
