Classic Electronic Albums - KLF - Chill Out
KLF - CHILL OUT (KLF COMMUNICATIONS)
Where do I start with this classic album?
Released in 1990, this is the KLF's first ambient album and what and album it is! Chill Out is a sonic journey, a trip from here to now and then onto the future. But is it really an ambient album? Is it an Electro Acoustic album? You will hear everything from proto KLF "White Room" tracks 3AM Eternal, Last Train To Trancentral etc alongside crickets, sheep, cars, radio news reports right through to Elvis Presley "In the Ghetto" all under heavy usage of delay and a great sense of movement.
Do also check out SPACE by SPACE which is the KLF on a journey to outer space.
