Following his blissfully abstract, piano-based collaborations with Harold Budd and Ruben Garcia over the last 20 years, The Arcades Project is John Foxx's first solo piano album, released on vinyl for the first time. This latest work has a fresh sense of wonder, as if returning to the instrument after the raging analogue noise of his last major work, 2020's Howl (by John Foxx And The Maths) necessitated a further retreat into quiet, minimal music. Reviews for The Arcades Project: "Delicate evocation of the ambience of a city's galleried passages.' Mojo 4 *. 'This exquisite and refined solo piano work is a fine addition to a body of work made by an artist always investigating memory and imagination.' The Quietus Album of the Month for April 2023. 'His most evocative music.' Uncut Magazine 8/10. 'Delicate, drifting and hypnotic.' Record Collector 4 *. 'Unmissable' Electronic Sound Magazine. 'It's minimalism is moving; it's restraint rich in reverie. Foxx's 21st-century body of work grows ever more absorbing.' Prog magazine. 'An album that has the potential to be a classic of modern times and a reference point for classical ambient for years to come.' Louder Than War. 'Awed wonder... and frequently beautiful.' Classic Pop. 'Foxx has created 12 stunning pieces of music... sparse, minimalistic, and extremely moving... It goes a long way in demonstrating just how much of a genius he is' Spill Magazine.
