RICHARD ALMASI A rather dark space-ambient album with a menacing mood in most of the pieces, which is not surprising considering the theme of abandonment, danger and fear. Favorite track: Twist.

about

review by Jerry Kranitz in the July 2002 issue of Aural Innovations:

Stranded On Earth includes some totally cosmic electronic space with just enough noise and harshness to keep listeners wide-eyed and alert so they don't get any silly meditative thoughts. Single or slowly developing tones and noise waves are accompanied by busier and continually evolving sounds, along with all the otherworldly bleeps and blurps you could ever want. "Suffering" is a standout track featuring howling wind tunnel waves, brain shattering tones, mucho fun freaky Forbidden Planet sci fi electronics, and a faint pattern that reminds me of an old Alan Parsons tune on speed (last thing you were expecting huh?). "Sway" and "Sweat" are among the darker and more intense tracks, as well as featuring some of the more avant-garde sound sculptures, with their minimalist patterns and loads of banging and clattering on the former. An excellent set of electronic excursions that are deep in the chaotic (as opposed to ambient) realms of the cosmos.
