Review: Norwegian ambient legend Geir Jenssen is enjoying a particularly good year. Having earned significant praise for his first new album in many years, Departed Glories, the veteran producer has decided to reissue another sought-after gem from his vast back catalogue. Cirque, which was apparently inspired by the real-life story of a walker who died in the Alaskan wilderness, earned hearty praise on its initial release back in 2000. This two-disc edition not only contains the original album - a typically evocative and atmospheric fusion of glacial ambience and icy soundscapes - but also a new bonus disc. This contains a mixture of enjoyable alternate takes and previously unreleased tracks recorded during the same period, all of which are - somewhat unsurprisingly - superb.
