4 stars Expo 70 is a sensational minimal-neo krautrockin' project of the guitarist Justin Wright. Exquisite Lust figures among the first recordings but directly reveals Wright's unique musical signature. His sound universe is focused on dense-moving dronescapes mainly built on very low frequencies, electro-loops, guitar's echoing patterns and atonal vibes. This is really sonorous stuff with huge, massive spherical electric frequencies and deep resonances. All musical paintings are evocative and luminously cinematic. The moving drone textures play with extended, circular time and subtle micro-changes. These epic compositions are really immersive and hauntingly absorbing. Exquisite Lust is an astonishing cerebral and phenomenological trip which investigate the liminal (marginal) spaces of the sensorial / sensitive experience. it achieves a balance between lubugrious-desolate moods and eternal dreaminess (obtained by dynamic and buzzing guitar leads). The instrumentation expressively capture the essence of mystical-trance (like) communication. Exquisite Lust is an essential and playful adventurous drone rockin album. With albums as Mystical amplification or Animism, Justin Wright will carry on the exploration of singular micro-tonal genealogies. Highly recommended for fans of krautrock nihilism, early US minimalism and dark (industrial) ambient.

3 stars A promising start from a "Krautrock", late bloomer.

Hard to just overrate, as far as the PA ratings usually do. This 2005 album "Exquisite Lust ", can't hide its, Ash Ra Tempel, GAM, Fripp & Eno, Manuel Gottsching or Gunther Schickert's deep influence ( and of course, Steve Reich and Terry Riley, who "influenced", these musicians, the same way) . More than once, these ROOTS are this record's main drawback and more than once, I think, it was quiet unnecessary.

This musician, has talent enough, and more than enough "technical advantages", in comparisson, to those "old" legends. For starters "studio time", which in those days, was a matter of economics, more than talent alone. (of course if you were non-mainstream, as Prog was in those days, glorious days). So, considering that you now can Re-record, Re-play, Edit, master and remaster, from the comfort of your toilet seat, if you wish, you should have less of a hurry and economical pressure, to compose and play. And that my friends is called "field advantage", as far as song writing and musical composition goes. NOW, talent itself, is just another realm.

Exquisite Lust, is a promising 1st album. It will remind you of "old days", but also, it will offer a very pleasurable rendition to those legends. And of course it is beautifully recorded and mastered.

***3.5 "worth listening to", PA stars.
