Prog Reviewer
4 stars A focused view of modern chaos through the eyes of ancient times.

Tim Hecker is an iconclast, his broken musical idiom is not for everyone, yet, he because of the same, is always pushing his own experimental spirit beyond comfortable zones, and in the same way "comfortable" audiences.

Therefore his electronic music resembles none. To cut it short, and relate his language somewhere in this PA's Progressive Electronic neighborhood, he is more in tune with Conrad Schnitzler's streets than Klaus Schulze's or Tangerine Dream's avenues.

In this 2016, "Love Streams", Tim Hecker's approach is closer to classical/contemporary composition stylings and 15 century like chorals, blended into one singular mixture, transfigured with his broken radio electronics (broken electric guitar solos included here and there), his own understanding of the Berlin School methods, his own manufactured style and his keen sense of music writing.

Aided by the Icelandic Choir Ensemble and some other instrumentalists, this release is a tornado of fresh air in this PA's sub-genre. full of Tangerine Dream's copycats. Opposite to that proving that in fact there is life after T.D, in this electronic world and, above all, a highly recommendable acquisition for daring P/E enthusiasts which can enjoy order as they can enjoy chaos!

****4 "full" PA stars.
