Johan Agebjorn - "The Mountain Lake" CD

Melodic ambient techno/electronica from Sweden, "The Mountain Lake" cruises into the celestial heavens at its best, but this collection of collaborations and remixes has some definite faults. "The Stones Are Blasted", for example, comes across as silly new-age piano/synth fluff. On the other hand, "Swimming Through The Blue Lagoon" is a nice bit of Kraftwerk-style electro-pop. And "Take Me Home" is a superb Biosphere-styled arctic ambient journey. There's a lot of promise here, but "The Mountain Lake" just isn't as cohesive a mix as it should be. (Lotuspike)
