Lasse Marhaug - _Audio Explosions Every 10 Seconds_
(Extraction, 1998)
by: Gabriel Sanchez (6.5 out of 10)
With a title like that, you'd almost be expecting a (dun dun dun) noise concept album! However, instead the album (mis)treats its listeners to rather simplistic (though at times interesting) tracks of noise which tend not to feature many changes, but luckily don't drone on too long. In some senses, this album is a borderline case of that fine noise/ambient hybrid which so many artists are diving into these days, though at others there is a clear distinction with the harshness and attempts at using some elements of sound varying and textures (including a noise standard pornography sample of some fine young lass doing her best to fake orgasms). At best, the tracks featured on here can be called harsh surrealism, though perhaps that is taking a step a bit too far in a positive direction. For Lasse, this is the same old deal which any previous fan of the project can easily identify with, and perhaps even herald as one of the better recordings of the artist out there. However, on the grander scale of judging noise, this is a better than average work that is screaming for some better work on the audio sequencing and changes so it may take a leap forward into the more prominent circles of the field. Bottom line: good, but nothing to go sucking the artist's dick over.
