4 stars "Mono" is not a monotone.

LAMBWOOL's "Mono" released in 2009 is a conceptual album including two long tracks (Part 1 & 2) maybe for representing monotonous atmosphere just like the monotonous sleeve pic. But the content cannot be mentioned simply as above.

From just the beginning of the first track Part 1, I cannot avoid feeling theatrical improvement and continuous beauty brought up all of a sudden. Exactly more monotonous and more of fragility than his debut shot can be heard via this stuff, but not tiresome (of course!) ... beneath the monotonous sea, ambient musical therapy regulated with theoretical method for melody lines. Dramatic, suggestive and addictive sound cries here and there, based upon wavy freak-out drone background. Upon another moment, looks like I should swim in a cool lake surfaced by clear blue ice. The musical lake, veiled in a mysterious oxygenic water where an embryo lives safe and sound, has some capacity for every inner mind.

Part 2 sounds like a lullaby featuring heartwarming mother's touches and hallucinogenic movements. There are vacant moments filled with meaningful sound elements ... and amazingly every little vacancy should be a threshold into the next tonic occasion. As if he might make a strong resistance against an invisible wall, a mass of electronic bullets created via his synthesizer attack and hit against transparency. And ultimately the last 5 minute phrase is a dramatic epilogue containing a beautiful graceful melody trip that can be called as such an ambient Fantasia.

As a result, I cannot help considering that every electronic monotone would assemble together towards a music elixir otherwise.
