I'm in total agreement with "techsoul" in that, here, Dundov nails it with every note and sound - to perfection. Every track is a standout.

But to clarify regarding references to synthesizer music, there is more similarity to heyday Tangerine Dream than Vangelis. This album would be the "ideal" natural progression to TD's 1983 gem - Hyperboria. It also reminds me of TD's Edgar Froese's (when he still had a brain) excellent solo album made in the same year - Pinnacles. - it's trance a decade before trance.

"Ideas From The Pond" is definitely my favourite release, so far, for 2012.

"Ideas From The Pond" seems like a logical progression after "Escapements" - putting even more focus on harmonic progression, Dundov confidently gives his wide, scenic slabs of synth-washed Techno goodness the time they need to do their magic.

Listening to the album for the first time, I had that rare feeling to hear music which somehow had already been there and always will be there. Every note falling into place, every sound making perfect sense - universal flux blurring any sense of time.

Not as "trancey" as the reviews in many mags may make you think. Personally, I hear a lot more references to instrumental synthesizer music from the 80's. Think Vangelis, but without all the cheesy hymns cluttering the hypnotic potential beneath.

"Together" is my favourite track on here, with its positively melancholic mood somehow being reminiscent of Kenny Larkin's epic "War Of The Worlds" to me. That said, the remaining six tracks are also pure ear candy, made by an audio craftsman who obviously knows what he does, fusing Ambient and Techno without falling for the obvious, overdone Dub Techno scheme.

When putting on "Ideas From The Pond", it instantly sucks you into the journey it has to offer - like a good album should.

I consider this an untouchable classic for the years to come.

Like @maroko review on Escapements album, this is one of the biggest electronic album in years and of course the best album of 2012 at moment. Fantastic melodies, progression, is a journey into the future of scene, techno melodic with trance influences. Totally respect for this guy.
Awesome 5/5.
