Absolutely. Outstanding. Utilizing angelic vocal manipulation and a wide array of samples, field recordings and electronic drum beats FRKTL has composed a unbelievably immersive, hypnotic and beautiful masterpiece of virtuoso musicianship. Easily the best Ambient album I have heard in a long time.
Favorite track: Hart er með hölðum.
A gorgeous birth to a now striving force in vaporwave music, 'Atarashī Hi no Tanjō' can only be seen in my eyes as the greatest ambient album of all time.
From its rolling samples of Japan's sleepless transit systems through to the intimate use of vocal samples throughout, the dynamic duo of HKE and t e l e p a t h cannot be praised enough for this modern classic, ever evoking that same sense of mystique I caught when I stepped off the sub-express to Moriguchi for the very first time.
