ATARAXIA's interesting combination of Classical, Medieval Choral & mood music has appealed to me from the moment I first heard it. This 11 track album, the first they released as a CD is a slow-grower, lacking the immediacy of the previous cassette only releases. But the sound, presented here more for it's strident strength & energy than it's often beautific images, slowly invades the mind, seducing the listener with forceful songs which combine NICO's flat strength with martial music which could come from DEATH IN JUNE or TEST DEPT circa "Gododdin". Where many of their previous works give the impressions of shifting diaphanous walls of time, religious obsession, darkly mysterious happenings, and beauty - always beauty - this album sounds almost like protest music, an often clever Folk music backing of acoustic guitars and simple hammered sounds, mixed with sweeping keyboard strings driven often by the fast martial drumming. But it's always, ALWAYS those layers of voice which make them so distinctly ATARAXIA. ATARAXIA are always worth seeking out for those gorgeous waves of female voice which wash over the listener in wraith-like waves, like ghostly Nuns plain chanting through time & dimension. I'm not totally convinced they chose their material well enough to show the world how highly they should be regarded. But I still have Faith. For this album ATARAXIA consisted of FRANCESCA NICOLI - voice, lyrics, drum machine; VITTORIO VANDELLI - synth guitars, classical guitars, drum machine; GIOVANNI PAGLIARI - keyboards, piano.
