*The final track "Crystal Candles For Magical Days" revolves around a heavy double bass riff that sounds like doom metal played by Lee Rocker. All around though there are ethereal trip-hop style layers of sound, and these sonics really come to the fore as the track goes on, building into a perfect blend of organic and synthetic sounds. The whole thing ends with a hypnotic but engaging ambient section that's full of intriguing background noises, and it brings the album to a beautiful close.

The issue I have always personally found with trip-hop is that, for all of it's progressive and enlightened musical outlook, it is a genre rooted firmly in British music, and rarely is it combined well with more American pop and rock styles. With Dreamy Hamilton I have now definitely found a record which manages to combine the textures and timbres of trip-hop with an American style of song-writing, creating something wonderful that doesn't fit quite into any one genre. The album floats through your consciousness like the memory of last night's dreams, twisting and turning with an inherent subtlety that alters it's nature without you even noticing, and before long you're not sure what is memory and what is illusion. It's a fabulous and complete album that shows Arkhota to be a stunning and hugely talented creator. (Words in the Earth 03/23/21)
