Good God, James Jacket has done it again.  From beautiful Lisbon, Portugal, Jacket has been a mainstay of the Lisbon music scene along with his sister, Suspiria Franklyn.  This time, Jacket has wondered out into beautiful yet somewhat disturbing ambient electronics.  Beautiful, because his music takes you on wings; disturbing, because, while you’re flying, you all of a sudden look down and realize how high you are.  That’s when you depend on Jacket to bring you down safely.  This is tremendous music, worthy of being in the company of Eno, Erik Satie, John Cage, and the Aphex Twins.  It is amazing:  Jacket can punk out with the best, yet also can bring you to emotional heights.
