Deeper [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richard Foss
By the time he made his third album, the Polish-born New Yorker known as Copernicus had his pattern well established: Hire a bunch of musicians who have probably never played together; have them improvise for hours while he speaks, raves, and even occasionally sings something; and only let them leave the studio when they're too tired to play another note. Later, go through the tapes and selectively edit whatever moments of brilliance happen to have occurred and put them on the next record.

All Music Guide - Richard Foss
By the time he made his third album, the Polish-born New Yorker known as Copernicus had his pattern well established: Hire a bunch of musicians who have probably never played together; have them improvise for hours while he speaks, raves, and even occasionally sings something; and only let them leave the studio when they're too tired to play another note. Later, go through the tapes and selectively edit whatever moments of brilliance happen to have occurred and put them on the next record. While this sounds like a recipe for disaster, Copernicus hired really good musicians and he was a surprisingly good stream-of-consciousness lyricist, and as a result his albums are genuinely interesting. Deeper merges jazz, Andean and Celtic folk, and avant-garde squalls of noise into something that is often mesmerizing. Ear magazine and Rockpool both gave the album rave reviews, and the album has stood the test of time very well. It is still a bracing, challenging, and occasionally humorous listen, and nobody else has ever done anything quite like it. [Note: Celtic rock fans may be interested to note that all of the members of Black 47 play on this album, though it would be another three years before they played together as a band.]
