Surprise, surprise, the title of the new Main album is "Firmament IV". Robert Hampton has become predictable as of late. This time around he composes a dozen relatively short Ambient tracks. He works with inaudible bass tones that suddenly exponentially explode in decibels. A few of the tracks break down into what passes for a rhythm, even if the cadence come from thick pitchshifting bass in the midst of a Doppler effect. Main's quality and strength of composition is still Ambient artists wet dream We just think we know what to expect from Main. Robert Hampton instead treats this assumptions as justification to continually surprise us.
