Kompakt's Pop Ambient 2007 again spotlights 'still lifesâ?� that glisten on ever-broadening washes of white noise and synth chords ' it's the seventh such edition from the German label/powerhouse distributor. The 2007 compilation is all bliss, and although no selection outweighs the next, the Field's Axel Willner builds a sturdy centerpiece in 'Kappsta,â?� with rich snippets of choral loops that sweep in and out of gratuitous trance synths ' it's well-positioned, following Gas and Markus Guentner's grandiose, fuzzed-out 'Altocomulus Opacus.â?� Alternately, Klimek works in stuttering, chopped acoustic bits on 'Ruined in a Day (Buenos Aires),â?� with a formula for this quivering entry quite close to his somewhat forgettable Music to Fall Asleep. In comparison, Pop Ambient 2007 is a more potent potion; next to this year's standouts from Chihei Hatakeyama and New Orleans' Belong, its smothering textures won't quickly be forgotten.
