Various Artists Pop Ambient 2005
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Kompakt
Since 2001, Kompakt has been franchising the most beautiful sounds next to silence-respect to any company that can turn on thousands to rarefied beatless music. Kompakt‘s potent name recognition means loads of folks can access yearly primers of top-shelf ambience from trusty producers like Gas, Markus Guentner, and Peter Grummich. Lulling lavender odes to amniotic tranquility prevail on Pop Ambient 2005, but Klimek brings some amazing guitar-chord dispersion that shimmers like a heat haze and Thomas Fehlmann rises above a strong lineup with a track of iceberg-like majesty, which drifts into this pantheon of slow-motion drone beauty.
