"In the L..L..Library Loft" is Toby Driver's solo masterpiece. The way this music is constructed really immerses you and makes you feel like you're in a nightmare. That being said, yes, it is quite dark and not everyone may enjoy it. But it's okay! This is one of those albums that if you do "get it," it brings many gifts and a truly awesome experience.

It must always be stated that this album is quite slow. This album is certainly for more of the Kayo Dot fan than one of maudlin of the Well. And even so, it's not like this is a straight Kayo Dot incarnation. If you thought Kayo Dot would make your kids cry (yes, I've seen people say that), then you ain't seen nothing yet!

The album's atmosphere is incredibly intense, and thus does drive some people away from this album. To summarize the music in a couple of words, it would probably: insanity and tension. Sound like a good time? I thought so. It's also a very climatic album. At first, you're just kind of wallowing around in the ambience of things, yes, still with that creepy, intense atmosphere, but gradually it seems start weighing down on you even more, until you are in some storm of, yes, insanity.

As this minimalist style of song structure may drive people away, people who embrace the music can really find something special in this piece. Probably the darkest album I've heard since Heresie by Univers Zero, definitely recommended from me!
