Summvs 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Sakamoto and Alva Noto sound freer and more creative on this collaboration, as compared to something like "Insen", which is thematically more cohesive. While some might say that the first couple of songs on "Summvs" are too dark, such is real life. While I would rate the 1st couple of songs a 4, the last few are a definite 5+, especially the two remakes of Brian Eno's "By This River". Sometimes the beauty of something can't be felt unless time slows down, and Noto/Sakamoto often exist in this realm. The electronic blips and static washes mix well with Sakamoto's slow piano steps, full and weird minor keys from a specially tuned instrument. Not all of your friends will like this - just let them keep flipping between cable channels on their loud TVs. Summvs is the slow breeze you don't notice unless you're practically standing still.
