Selected Studies, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Fred Thomas
To say the least, the pairing of former Commotions lead crooner Lloyd Cole and Krautrock pioneer Hans-Joachim Roedelius looks a little strange on paper, but both had been operating in electronic music circles for some time by the arrival of Selected Studies, Vol. 1. Considering Cole's history as a smooth pop singer, his involvement in this entirely instrumental album of extremely chilled-out, nearly ambient studies in texture and subtly shifting moods is especially curious, despite the release of Plastic Wood, his often overlooked 2001 album of similarly minded instrumental electronic music.

Considering Cole's history as a smooth pop singer, his involvement in this entirely instrumental album of extremely chilled-out, nearly ambient studies in texture and subtly shifting moods is especially curious, despite the release of Plastic Wood, his often overlooked 2001 album of similarly minded instrumental electronic music.
