Much more than “psychedelic ambient”, which is how John Gore calls his project with Steve Hall and C.Reider, this music sounds like a machine washing away the sins from the blemished souls of those who believe in the relaxing power of ambient itself, the presumed “real thing” which sometimes makes us even more nervous due to lack of contents. On the contrary, “A blow to the head” is an accomplished work, a group of abstract reminiscences where the apparent absurdity of contorted voices from the ground suggests multidimensional narratives wandering through emotional relationships between uncommon synthetic parabolas and slowly falling black angels. The quality of these suggestions grows with the passage of time, so that concepts started with a touch of nice violence find their own significance at last, mirroring themselves in a finely displayed droning.
