Recognised as a mystical withdrawn masterpiece created by Irish electroacoustic pioneer Roger Doyle, the album Thalia's short-lived existence on CBS Classics was deemed a commercial failure in the eyes of blinkered major label suits but would further cement Doyle's contemporary concrète credentials - paving the way for a multi-disciplinary genre-bending career at the forefront of independent Irish music and earning him a coveted spot on the indispensable Nurse With Wound List. With only 200 copies rumoured to have survived the CBS cull, Thalia has become an elusive and highly sought-after feather in the caps of collectors of both outsider electronics and avant-garde tape manipulation, and has long since been respected as one of the most important records in either field to emerge from the Emerald Isle.
'commissioned by Misawa Home Corporation for use in their prefabricated houses', says the press release.Turns out to be one of the rereleases of the year. Absolutely amazing ambient music. Robert Bloemkolk
This album has a desolate, desert aura to it that sets it apart from other outings in their discography, and the riffs in "Green Sugar" demand air-sitar play. "Melted Crystal" is the real gem, though. PannionSeer
