Aug. 6th, 2005 @ 09:11 am Please welcome our new Ambient Reviewer: Gurdonark
Current Music: Andrew Chalk—Shadows from the Album Skies
I want to make a special announcement for ambient_review readers. This website has long been my own "solo project," of a sorts, in writing about ambient music, so I had never considered, seriously or otherwise, featuring the review work of another. Since, however, my own output of ambient reviews must, by necessity, be perhaps one or two reviews per month these days, I decided to use the site to provide a place for my good and longest LJ friend, gurdonark to publish his own excellent reviewing work—partly to aid him in publishing his own excellent reviews on an already established site, but also to provide more frequent content for you, the readers, since I cannot spit out reviews with the consistancy of "yesteryear."

I hope you'll be as excited as I am when you read gurdonark's first review, that of the Hypnos release Twilight in the Offing by Chad Hoefler. gurdonark is, as you would expect if you read his LJ, a salient and wide-ranging reviewer; his appreciation for the ambient form longstanding, and I am very, very proud to have his material featured here.

So, without further ado, I will post his latest review with the preface that I only hope we see more excellence from him in the near future.

Also, in site-specific news, you may have noticed that the ambientreview.com domain name now sends you directly to the LJ blog page. This is my intention. I have retired the actual site, in favor of the blog aspect, which I find more sympatico to my own sensibilities. It's a lot easier to manage, I can assure you—I was no webmaster, even at the best of times. I hope to have a complete Review Index, of all ambient_review material, available for browsing quite soon.

Thank you all so much for your patience and support, and, most of all, enjoy the reviews!
