matt elliott resurrects his third eye foundation for a stunning set of movements which touch upon every aspect of his career to date. the much anticipated album the dark reflects details from the span of elliott's output as the third eye foundation and the culmination of his never ending musical studies. the essential third eye elements are all represented: the dark but intricate atmospheres, the head spinning beats, the walls of sound swelling and receding and a pounding, thundering bass. the dark is both a direct continuation on from little lost soul and a definite move in a new direction. the shape and the soul of the dark is at the same utterly classical and contemporary. made up of five movements which merge into one another seamlessly, at times thundering dub-step, at others pulsating drum and bass and at others a blissful soundscape. throughout the album the voices never end, swooping in, whispering, screaming. voices from throughout the world and time echoing the cries of our collective unconscious stretched and pitched, so you can hear with precision the emotion expressed, the details of their pain, their joy, their sadness, and their anger. then there are the haunting strings, the deep brass, other unidentifiable instruments all twisted together. the dark is a definitive piece of music at the same time tortured and yet romantic, reflecting the loss and the joy, the sin and the repentance, the despair and the optimism that all thinking people feel.
