But taken as a whole, Thirtycabminute is a soothing and sonically rewarding journey.

    An overlooked bit of Magic

    This CD is a hushed masterpiece of smooth yet powerful emotional nuggets. I was sailing along listening to Kid A and Hail to the Thief and wondering what on Earth would get those two CDs out of my player when along comes 30cabminute. Illyah Kuriyakin does not have the accomplishments of Radiohead but IK is so mellow and so satisfying in phrasing tonality and atmospherics. This CD deserves to be heard by lots of people. It is very evocative of Manhattan (where it was recorded) at its best and nothing short of Magic. There is an instrumental cut or two that could have been left out but all of the vocal tracks are very nice, very smooth.
