Jin Choi's A Thousand Whales Of Love is a true artist album -- all told, 11 songs of emotion using the dance music idiom, but meaning much more. Choi's previous work with Archipel, Lessizmore, Contexterrior and his own Private Gold imprint have brought this subtle yet forceful sound into view, but with this album, there has been extra care afforded to create a vivid, multicolored and multifaceted sonic picture for the public to enjoy in places other than just the dancefloor. The album encompasses such disparate genre influences as ambient soundscapes, '60s soul, '80s neon disco soundtracks, smoky and moody blue-note jazz, and his tough yet subtle minimalist (but not minimal) house excursions. A Thousand Whales Of Love is an album that says so much without saying it through a bullhorn. Full of shrouded emotion teased out of detail, in unlikely forms and places. A treatise on a subject that must be close to the artist's heart but is left up to interpretation by the listener. Nothing is forced, but a lot is gained. At times melancholic and at times hopeful, at times subdued and at times ecstatic, A Thousand Whales Of Love is a proper album by a proper artist.
