Another fine Goa album from Artifact 303.

When I first got "Back to Space" back in 2011, I was initially underwhelmed. It seemed not to be the best of both worlds, but to fall between two stools. On the one hand, it had the manic, sometimes indigestible, layerism of nu skool Goa that throws everything including the kitchen sink at the listener. On the other hand, it seemed to be a fairly straightforward copy of Astral Projection that wasn't original enough to justify its existence. So ran my initial thoughts. But over time, "Back to Space" sank into my consciousness and I started to enjoy it. It does have the weakness of a certain breathless quality that would benefit from pruning the endless pretty layers and more attention to spacing and pacing, but there are some great melodies on that album.

10 years later and Peter Zsolt brings us another Goa artifact: "From the Stars". One thing is for sure, his basic template has not changed at all: this is still highly layeristic nu skool with a strong Astral Projection melodic flavour. This brings both the joy in some fantastic melodies, and the limitation of a certain relentless breathlessness and prettiness, at least to this listener. I'm not going to comment on individual tracks, because most tracks are kinda similar, and I'm not sure that is the point of this album. What then is the point? I think it is to take the listener on an epic journey into hyperspace with galaxies flying past at such phenomenal speed that they create ceaselessly morphing fractal hallucinations of spiderwebby beauty. You might say that that is the aim of all Goa, but even if so, on this basis Artifact 303 must be judged more successful than most. One of the things that I most like about this artist is his ability to balance melodic delicacy with good propulsive energy. To sum up: another recommendable album from Artifact 303. ~*~
