Album: Tales of the Inexpressible Artist: Shpongle Released: May, 2001. There are some albums in this world which are so far-reaching (in terms of musical style) yet easy to listen to, no matter what your musical taste is – you must have them. Tales of the Inexpressible' shifts around numerous musical genres and really brings a new definition to mixing electronic music with acoustical instruments, but is still sounds organic and natural to our minds, a rare thing these days.
Tales Of The Inexpressible by Shpongle, released 29 March 2001 1. Dorset Perception 2. Star Shpongled Banner 3. A New Way To Say 'Hooray' 4. Room 23 5. My Head Feels Like A Frisbee 6. Shpongleyes 7. Once Upon The Sea Of Blissful Awareness 8. Around The World In A Tea Daze 9. Flute Fruit. Apadiel One of the greatest albums I've ever heard and experienced. Each song is like a journey on it's own, yet the whole album together also feels like an even larger journey.
Tales of the Inexpressible is Shpongle's second album, released in 2001. Simon Posford and Raja Ram hone and expand the style introduced on their debut album, Are You Shpongled?. Raja Ram plays Spanish and East Asian instruments along with the flute, and Simon Posford plays classical guitar as well as synthesizing and sampling. The song "Room 23" appears on the back cover of the album with the name "Room 2ॐ", the character "ॐ" being the Om, the sacred eternal sound in Hinduism.
With Tales of the Inexpressible, Simon Posford and Raja Ram widened their Eastern-influenced ambient sound to incorporate stronger samples and a wry, complex production psychology. The effect was a lot like the Orb's "Earth (Gaia)" or the work of Future Sound of London recorded with Cydonia's Aki Omori, encouraging dub and cartoon effects to make nests inside a slick environmental vibe.
