Feb 22, 2012Flumina is an arresting and beautiful work as deep and open as the body of water that graces its cover art.
MojoFeb 23, 2012The overall mood is one of muted, minor-key sadness, Sakamoto's clear, simple piano lines eroded and blurred by the melancholy atmospherics of Fennesz. [Feb 2012, p.97
UncutFeb 24, 2012It's quite beautiful, even if it feels a little pacific and lav-lamp-like in the long haul. [Feb 2012, p.84]
Feb 22, 2012It seems designed to hover in the background, covering the sound of clinking glassware and forks tapping plates and blending smoothly with subdued conversation.
Feb 22, 2012Sakamoto and Fennesz don't say how you should take their music, but its piano-forward sound aligns it with decades of delicate minor-key melodies that have accompanied countless images of rain on window pains and lonely pining lovers.
Feb 22, 2012While something like 2007's Cendre benefited greatly from an occasional splash of his cotton-wool electronics, there are very few moments like that here, and frankly, it needs more.
Feb 22, 2012Flumina does exactly what it's meant to. Which is not very much.
