  • Summary: This is the debut album for Chad VanGaalen's solo electronic project.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 6
  2. Negative: 1 out of 6
  1. If for no other reason than that VanGaalen is perfectly content to be an intuitive outsider to this “outsider” genre of music that he unplies, his Black Mold tastes fresh and new and, ultimately, life-giving to the likes of us.
  2. Fans of Chad VanGaalen will find much to love in Black Mold, the Calgarian’s electronic instrumental side project that reveals just how fertile his imagination is (in case we needed further proof).
  3. Black Mold would probably sound like a more typical, laptop-based electronic project if it weren’t for the strong melodies. These melodies allow VanGaalen to get out of his head at least a little bit and create tracks that sound like songs instead of musical experiments.
  4. Snow Blindness isn't essential listening for anyone but VanGaalen's most dedicated fans, but it is an enjoyable, occasionally even great record.
  5. While VanGaalen seems to be overflowing with great ideas, I’d prefer if he reined them in a little more tightly on his next release.

    Snow Blindness... is an indecipherable mess of spastic glitches and fuzz.
