J Archer Automne is a seminal Dark Ambient classic. Flowers for Bodysnatchers full length debut album captures a decaying world in vivid detail. Always dark and at times melancholic you'll find yourself being pushed and pulled through a world in slow motion. Favorite track: Moindre.

Kinshicho Memorable albums are far and few between. Here though Flowers for Bodysnatchers has crafted something extraordinary. Sitting on the cinematic edge of the dark ambient genre paying more attention to intricate construction and movement than broad oppressive drones, Automne stands out in the overcrowded room that is dark ambient. An emotive powerhouse. Beautiful and at times desperately lonely. Incredible variation throughout yet bonded as a whole with a fantastic narrative. Inspiring indeed. Favorite track: Moindre.
This Is Darkness

This Is Darkness A magnificent release by Duncan Ritchie. This is some of the finest cinematic dark ambient out there. Every track paints a brilliantly bleak picture of a faded and decaying world. Favorite track: L'amour a Mort.
A Walker

A Walker The haunting chills of a world moving in slow motion. Automne is an album with a certain intangible narrative. Ghostly, vague yet measured and immense. Tracks like S'effondrer are in part absolutely terrifying. With the howling of air raid sirens to the sparse mechanical hums permeated by thumping low end beats. This is truly end of the world and post apocalyptic indeed. Favorite track: Moindre.

LJ It's always good to come across prime examples of dark ambient being done better than the rest. Automne has a quality and depth unlike anything I've heard in some time. There's a narrative being told here and it's up to your imagination to complete the story. Besides a finely crafted album the production value I have to say is stunning. The clarity in this recording is truly wonderful. Brilliant all round! Favorite track: S'effondrer.

Automne explores the emotional impact of the fall of humanity and the effect it has on an individual. Personal, social and environment decay are ripe themes in this album. We trace the path of our protagonist through the fall and explore the delirium associated with no longer being able to tell one season from another. Where every day feels like the approaching winter.
