Good, but song order is incorrect.

Venice is a wonderful album by Fennesz, one of the greatest electronic artists of our time (though not nearly as remarkable as his album Endless Summer, one of the most incredible recordings I have ever heard). Still, it's disappointing that the track order here is alphabetical, rather than in the order you would find if you were to purchase the album. Regardless, the key tracks here are "Circassian," "The Stone of Impermanence," and "Chateau Rouge," my personal favorite. Still, iTunes DESPERATELY needs to get a hold of Endless Summer. I haven't listened to any album of any genre as much as I have listened to that album.

Who said abstraction had to be cold and cerebral? So much spirit in these guitar driven vignetes. Behind the extra intelligent laptop guy lies a pastoral composer. This guy is a scify troubador. Including voice here was wise and Sylvian is the most elegant of choices.

LOVE itself.

This is the soundtrack to LOVE itself! The subtlety used by Fennesz to get his energy across is amazing. Exceptionally special songs include: Chateau Rouge, City of Light, and Rivers of Sand. Some of the songs sound very subdued, but if listened to at the optimal level (i.e. headphones) they become larger than life. He is a master of electronic music and has scored a great hit with this album. Cheers.
