"Hey ho, Ambient Kids! MDF is back with another long-player of drifting space debris soundscapes, this time based around a real-life (though presumably not real-time) train journey through Canada’s East.

Goths, Rockers, Ravers. Easy enough to spot in a school playground. But how to pick out The Ambient Kid? Probably bearded from an early age. Wispy chin strands where possible. Gazing into nothingness from the back of the classroom?

The album itself is a dreamier, and occasionally darker, sample-free KLF - Chill Out.

Actually, it’s nothing like Chill Out. I don’t know why I said that. Lazy sap reviewing.

If you liked this or that album you’ll stroke and stoke your delighted half-man into this so-and-so without the ding dong meets blah-dee-blah with a bit of hoohah thrown in.

In any case it's all available for a measly coin (more, if you so choose). So no-one can accuse MDF of ripping off the fucking kids while they’ve been paying their hard-earned money to listen to the bands they would like to know about."
