Instant classic.

This singular podcast strikes an eerily mysterious tone befitting of its title "The Labrynth." It's an anonymous, intellectual tour de force waxing poetic, with respect, reverence, and a sense of bewildered awe at the potential depths musical exploration allows. There is a timeless (or old-timey) feel to fairly monotonous and serious delivery which is deliberately compressed to sound like a recording from circa 1950. This well-written, steadfast stoic delivery lays atop an ever-present atmospheric soundbed which helps create the show's distinctive mysterious mood. At times one gets the sense that in taking everything so seriously there's a hint of sarcastic self-caricaturization, however, aside from this slight humorous infusions, don't except any raucous laughs. Bravo. Encore?

Fascinating. Creepy? No. Addictive? A little

Fascinating content. I wish he had continued into the labyrinth further, as his first episode promised. Where is he and what is he doing now? Can’t find his website.

This man is a genius

Definitely worth a couple of listens, even for those of you who are not musicians. Requires a bit of patience, but you won't regret it.
