Review of The Best of ENDICHE VIS.SAT
Julie Johnson, Grave Concerns, 2000
There really is no other CD like this. ENDICHE VIS.SAT keep it unique.
The band creates peaceful sounds that let your mind do the thinking. The
songs make your mind wander easy. With many instruments working together
like the flute, clarinet and other band instruments they really have separated

especially on the opening

a female voice emerges to accent the music. The voice sends a tranquil
3, is quite different. I don't understand the spoken words, but I like
the different transitions with the voices, and the effects of heaviness.
I get a radio feel with this, meaning I feel like the music is switching
channels. I hear the sound of a record player, I hear TV channels being
flipped though, and I hear polka music all in one song. It seems
like the songs setting would be most fitting for the 40'-50's with the
TV sounds. Something the band might be brining in from their cultural and
history. There are also many different samples going through this song.
4, is back the slower feel. I feel like I should be at a temple or
celebrating a religious celebration. Good use of a chant like vocal, even
if I had no clue what they were saying. Ok, well now it is up to you to
hear the rest of this CD. This is one of the
most bizarre CD's that I have heard. This is definitely out there with
a good mix of jazzy tones, classical, ethereal, and experimental sounds.
