First Touch title of 2011 is this career best LP from Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson first released in 2004 now surfacing through Deutsche Grammaphon it's beautifully packaged. Written for 11 brass players, with inflections of piano, electronics and process kissing the edges, it's really all about the overwhelming swell of horns, bursting at the seams in a rush of pure cinematic widescreen loveliness. Breathtaking.
