Music from the Unrealized Film Script, Dusk at Cubist Castle

Not the Beatles, but an incredible facsimile: on their sprawling 27-song debut opus, Music From the Unrealized Film Script, Dusk at Cubist Castle, the Olivia Tremor Control manage to summon not only the sound of the White Album-era Fab Four, but also the unfettered creativity. The soundtrack to an unmade film about a pair of women named Olivia and Jacqueline and a massive earthquake dubbed the California Demise, the album incorporates a slew of influences and textures (including Beach Boys-flavored pop, psychedelia, Krautrock, noise, and folk-rock) and synthesizes them into a distinct homebrew of shimmering harmonies, guitar drones, backward tape loops, and inventive effects. As an added bonus, the first few thousand copies came with a bonus CD of ambient "dream sequences" -- titled Explanation II -- which, when played simultaneously with the first disc, realizes true quadraphonic sound. Amazing.

This album manages to be so many things at one time: pop, psychedelic, rock, experimental, instrumental, ... And while artists have done that before, they never did it quite like this. This truly is one the most breathtaking artists and albums of its time.

<i>Dusk at Cubist Castle</i> is, without a question, one of the finest accomplishments of musical genius in the 1990s. High praise indeed, but you've just got to listen to the album to truly understand it. The synthesis of so many elements perfectly integrated with each other, it produces a picture unlike any other. Truly brilliant in concept, songwriting, and production, this album is an essential for anybody with a curious ear for music.
