"Pop, the album that has become widely recognized as the defining moment in which Wolfgang Voigt brought us into a clearing of his deep, psychedelic forest. A landmark release in the GAS odyssey that drew international attention, Pop was originally released in 2000 on the iconic Frankfurt imprint Mille Plateaux. Pop was heralded by Pitchfork at the time of release as being “an exercise in sonic texture… pure sonic velvet, the layered drone radiating a palpable warmth.”"

"Pop blossoms to life in one of the great openings in ambient music. It’s almost disorientingly psychedelic as it begins, and your first listen to Pop will probably be spent wowed by its environment before its physical pleasures start to register. Pop corrals sounds that’d never previously appeared anywhere else in the history of ambient, not least a hissing, pneumatic bubbling sound that seethes in the stereo field surrounding the first two tracks. There’s something distinctly humid, spongy, wet, and organic about this record. Listen to how it seems to insinuate itself into the very environment it’s heard in, how dendrites and tendrils and floral blooms seem to unfurl before our eyes. Listen to how it breathes, like some giant, gelatinous being. It practically has its own set of lungs. Pop feels alive." - Daniel Bromfield
