I wonder why Rameses III named themselves after him and not the Rameses before, since
he was the greatest Pharoah and everything. Maybe it's because he'll have probably
been been a bit reflective and melancholy at having to follow an act like that..
Perfect moods for ambient listening. And maybe I'm just trying to use up a few column
inches by vomiting out a load of speculative shite. What I can say for sure is that I
Could Not Love You More is a beautiful piece of work that compares very favourably with
the best ambient stuff I can remember us getting in in the last year or so, taking things
seriously pastoral with floaty drones breathing in and out while pianos, folky guitars and
mellotrons either spell out or merely suggest melody over the top. Lovely and soothing,
this Type LP isn't going to be around long - especially on the limited orange vinyl we've got in.
