    Through all six tracks, regardless of their rhythmic backing, harmonic and melodic complexity, or lack thereof, Axel Willner has managed to keep your eyes locked on the dangling watch before you. The sheer repetition lures you in, but it's the quality of what's happening in these dense mixes that makes you stay, that allows you see the forest for the tree.

    The warmth of Infinite Moment radiates from its symbiotic growth of melancholy and hope. Willner doesn’t privilege one over the other, but allows them to knit together, watching from a distance to see the shapes they might take.

    Since the very beginning of his debut, From Here We Go Sublime, Willner has remained a top-tier stalwart and in one grand, sweeping gesture secures the reality of being one of the very few who continually sound like no one else while expertly giving little in return.

    The perpetually unraveling nature of Infinite Moment results in a perfectly paced listening experience that's almost impossible not to get lost in.

    Over Infinite Moment's six tracks and one hour running time, Willner makes small shifts in mood from track to track, without ever really letting up the overall feeling of peace and joy that washes over you.

    It might not be the ideal starting place for those unfamiliar with The Field (should you be wondering, going in order is your safest bet), but it’s a worthy continuation of one of the most reliable discographies in our time.

    It is an album of specks dancing in the dust in an amorphous bubble of babble and bawling thoughts, yearning to be unthought.

    Every 2-3 years The Field returns with an hour or so of ambient, looping euphoria that has yet to disappoint me; he is truly one of the mostEvery 2-3 years The Field returns with an hour or so of ambient, looping euphoria that has yet to disappoint me; he is truly one of the most consistent and engaging musicians of the last 10 years. Each album expands or diverts from the previous one subtly, but the progression this time is perhaps the most notable so far. Whereas The Follower built on the darker more dense sound of the last few minutes of Black Sea from Cupid's Head, Infinite Moment is airier, lighter and more "organic". I wasn't sure what it would mean when I saw "organic" used to describe the upcoming album in the information surrounding its announcement (most of it incomprehensible) but it makes sense now. The sounds and feelings invoked by Infinite Moment recall natural, earth-bound processes and emotions. It is warmer and airier, in contrast to the cosmic tightness of The Follower. The Follower was wonderful, and Infinite Moment is perhaps better. I'll wait a while before making that call though. For now, a 9. Expand
