Tim’s music provides a very medicinal listening experience. With a lack of “hit singles”, this album flows together as one entity, dipping in and out of different soundscapes. All though each track has it’s own special flavor, the album is very cohesive from start to finish. From the opening gut churning gate arpeggios on The Piano Drop to the wailing drones of In the Air III that bring the album to its terminus, Ravedeath, 1972 is sure to send chills down anyone’s spine.
