Review by Bert Strolenberg (Sonic Immersion)

Now here’s another strong piece of profound ambient music by UK-based composer David Thompson, aka Phobos, who already made a great impression on me with "Live on Earth".

"This Desolate Place" contains one longform piece, offering 68 minutes of highly atmospheric textural music. I gave the album several spins with a good pair of headphones, and every time it blew me away.
For me, it again holds an extensive amount of intensity and mystery to keep ones attention while the journey through darker, overtly remote territory slowly but surely unfolds. The freeform soundscapes evoke strong visuals when one absorbs the haunting and excellently produced outcome with eyes closed, gently immersing into a deep, alienating world beyond.


"This Desolate Place", at times drifting in the same realm as "The Magnificent Void" by Steve Roach, is a fascinating trip through wide open, interlocking and multi-dimensional spaces where things like time and place seem far, far away. I would have loved this to be a factory-pressed release.
Chapeau oncemore, David!
