Eluvium Returns with New Double Album
This two-CD collection contains 14 tracks and is largely instrumental. It apparently marks a shift from his vocal-heavy 2010 album Similes and is intended as a follow-up to 2007's rather stellar Copia. Cooper apparently began working on the album several years ago before shelving it and eventually returning to the recordings.
A press release explains, "Conceived as a way of helping loosen his self-imposed ideals of perfection, Cooper labelled each Nightmare Ending track as either a 'dream,' or an 'imperfection' — a way of differentiating the philosophical concept of 'dream vs. reality,' couched in the more tangible technical distinctions of 'flawless vs. flawed.'"
