I enjoy listening to trance/dance music. The first few pieces seemed completely average to me. There wasn't anything I particularly disliked about them, but there was also nothing I really liked enough to notice it. I greatly enjoyed CapeTown. However, I went from listening to the calm coolness of CapeTown to the sudden chaos of The Trip, and I didn't like the change. It was much too drastic, in my opinion, and I didn't like the hip-hop elements introduced, although that's simply my personal preference. After The Trip, you lost the hip-hop element in DarkLine, and I've to tell you, I loved it. The prominent drums in the very beginning, and the overall composition of the piece greatly reminded me of Enigma's first album. One of my favorite pieces. The piece right after it, Monolith 1. 4. 9. had a nice energetic feel to it without overdoing it, and it was calming at the same time. For some odd reason, this reminds me of the music that they used for boss themes in earlier RPG games, where they wanted to let you know it was a boss, a big bad-ass that burned down your village and stole your girlfriend, but it's not insane hyper fast. Pleasure in the house reintroduced the hip-hop elements, and it had a nice beat, however I thought the "I'll give you pleasure" was off-putting. It seemed to ruin the main tone of the song, somehow, though I'm unable to explain exactly how. LatinFeel also had a nice, relaxing feel to it. I like the addition of the "ooh!", it went well with the theme of piece. I'm reminded of several pieces from Moby's Play album. I like how it sounded depressing without overdoing the emotion, which would drain the energy from the piece. I don't like the beginning of The Gate of Orion. It starts and builds up really slow, and it stays that way for too long of a time, in my opinion. It makes it seem boring. Once the music ha built up, it gets a little more interesting, but overall, the piece seemed too monotonous - although, it did make me think of Orion. I like the way Ex Vitro starts out, and how it builds up. Again, it reminds me of Enigma's work, but more from their third album. It doesn't build up too much, and you get a nice beat without overdoing it and making it too busy. This also has elements that remind me of BT's work, from his Movement in Still Life album. Kernal Fusion starts out in a similar way to Ex Vitro, and the beat is similar, but it sounds different in tone. The music has that sad feel to it, again, without it being overdone. It reminds me of the music that was used in the original Unreal game. The Final Loop starts out with a quick beat that I didn't exactly like, but then it started to build up, and I liked it once everything was going. However, I thought you could have added just slightly more to it. It seems a little too monotonous. Overall, this is a good album. I feel that The Trip and Pleasure in the House don't belong on this album. They're too different in tone and element from the other pieces, and it disrupts the flow, in my opinion. Keep up the good work!

Really loved this album. One of my favorites is 4D Surface with its progression of instrumentals being added on in layers until it explodes and continues-like someone waking in a beautiful place and flying through until all quiets down again at sunset. I did like Island Revisited which was very fast dance with ambient sounds; repetitive but nice especially when it hits water sounds - calming aspects but with hot drums, hot beat. Cape Town was cool and airy with layers of sound added upon layer with an emphatic beat, very electric. The Trip was party music, dance, ok for what it is. I loved Darkline which started with a big drumbeat and idiophonic sounds (bells perhaps). Nice beat, choral sounds enter in one of the layers, very busy sound but excellently put together. This one is a winner. All the songs on this album enjoy great layering of instruments, excellent beats, some vocals, super percussion and lots of ambients which were all woven together to make several great tunes. Lots of good dance/party music on this album. The last song was another favorite. It had a dark, angry relentless beat to start, hypnotic before the other layers were added in. Different sounds which were almost dichotomous in nature but worked well. It seemed almost futuristic with its great electronic sounds and seemed to end suddenly. All in all an excellent album and well worth a listen.

Je ne me lasse pas d'écouter ce nouvel album. Il y a un subtil mélange de sonorités électroniques qui me font penser aux PET SHOP BOYS - ELECTRONIC - KRAFTWERK. J'avais découvert ses 3 autres albums sur le site et celui-ci en est la continuité. J'espère qu'un jour JCRZ se produira car sa musique est faite pour un concert.
