BT – These Hopeful Machines
‘These Hopeful Machines’ is the sixth studio album by American electronic musician BT. Released on February 1, 2010, the album saw BT collaborate with the likes of JES, Rob Dickinson, Christian Burns and Kirsty Hawkshaw.
The man who help kick-start the trance genre still does it best, whether it’s instrument-based or one long exhalation of synth. That’s probably because the knob-twiddling prodigy is classically trained and believes more in 10-minute sprawls than 30-second hooks. “These Hopeful Machines” boasts fully conceived electronic symphonies with melodies that often stick and the album saw great reception from critics and was nominated for the 2011 Grammy Awards under Best Electronic/Dance Album.
