I was expecting the precise technicality of A Rainbow In Curved Air, but instead was delighted with an organic spoken word poetry paired with brilliant compositions that evolve over the entire-course of the two part album into a overflowing crescendo of thought and emotion. Autodreamographical Tales sets the tone for the strikingly beautiful concepts that are embedded into The Hook Lecture. Part one of the album is structured as a sort of dream recollection hence the title; its sincerity and abstract surrealism are very appropriate. Part two The Hook Lecture invoked something very universal but nevertheless human and left a felling complacency. Terry Riley's musical virtuosity reverberates throughout The Hook Lecture and is tied together by brief consecutive narrative statements that are deeply intellectual while still being emotive.Was this review helpful?
