|Jon Hopkins Opalescent Limited Gatefold Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP Set
Opalescent, the debut album from Mercury Music Prize and Ivor Novello award nominated artist Jon Hopkins has been remastered and reissued for the first time on vinyl for its 15 year Anniversary in a special edition 2LP gatefold sleeve with liner notes . Opalescent was originally released in 2001 when Jon was 20 and just signed to ambient label Just Music, yet today it still sounds so distinctive, musically and emotionally complex. It is in the contradictions between beauty and bass, gentleness and volume, ecstasy and elegy, that Opalescent derives its enduring otherness. Even 15 years on, it is never quite what you think it is.
LP 1: Elegiac / Private Universe / Halcyon / Opalescent / Lost In Thought / Fading Glow
