Harold Budd – The White Arcades (1988)

January 31, 2011

Budd’s 1988 album ‘The White Arcades’ is a very good example of ambient music. This album finds Budd recording a set of lovely melodies guaranteed to send you to dreamland.

The electronics here are more overt compared to his collaboration with Eno and Lenois on ‘The Pearl’ (1984). ‘The White Arcades’ retains the same relaxing atmosphere, but is ultimately not as versatile as ‘The Pearl’ (1984).

Reissued in 2005 with new artwork.
