Clint Listing: In the Minds of Madness

This is the first of two spring 2012 releases from the good people at Fluttery Records (the other being the rather lovely Glow in the Dark by Gargle.) In the Minds of Madness is an infinitely more challenging listen than both Gargle and most other work out there. The appeal of this record will definitely be pretty select consisting of nine drone artists including Clint Listing himself. According to his biography, "Clint Listing creates music as a solo artist in post-industrial landscape mix elements of noise, ambient, drone and avant sounds." It would be true to suggest that In the Minds of Madness does what it says on the tin.

This isn't popular music in any sense of the phrase. It's somewhat experimental focussing on noise rather than melody but when it works as on "Love is Pain" or on the near thirteen minute "Peace Breeds War" it's quite powerful stuff which transports the listener to a different time and space. Equally at times one kind of hopes for some respite from the relentless drone, however, if that is your bag you should enjoy this album a great deal but it is not for the casual listener.
