Non Terra Incognita: Ambient Works 1975 Present

Boyd Rice (Non) has a reputation as a nasty nihilist, but he's produced some of the most exquisitely gorgeous music ever-even an atheist might call some of it heavenly. Terra Incognita surveys Rice's nearly 30-year tenure as a maverick sound sculptor. Over these 13 tracks, Rice proves himself to be the master of hypnotic loops, be they lush, chiming Cocteau Twinsy guitars, scything zithers, stereopanned harps, or decaying tintinnabulation. And for sinners, Rice offers "A Taste Of Blood," a sonic catastrophe in miniature that captures the howls of the damned as hellfire consumes them. That's entertainment.
