Steve Roach's sequencer based music from the 2000s is so good. It's pretty psychedelic and not as dramatic as his earlier music in this style (Empetus was my intro to his music). I think one of his best sequencer based albums. It shows us his more melodic repetitive style, which gives the listener recognizable patterns immediately.

The tone of this album sounds pretty sci-fi, kind of tense in a way but with low-key sounds. The rhythms are often very fast with subtle modulation going on throughout. It makes me think of information traveling through wires or neuropathways. Morpheus from the Matrix would probably like this album.

If you like this one I would definitely recommend checking out other Steve Roach albums in this style. Skeleton Keys/Collection and Life Sequence are probably my favorites along with this. Spiral Meditation, Core, and Blood Machine are great too. Looking forward to more releases.

This is an interesting album indeed. To me, this album takes you back to the days of 'Empetus' but also has an strangely 'ambient' overtone. I would even dare say a couple of the tracks sound like they could be from the German school of electronic music - ie. lots of sequencing.

The track Proof Positive, sounds like it could fit very well on an ambient 'chill out' mix album. Still highly recommended though, as I have a feeling that there will be more albums like this, but with collaborations, etc.. Steve has forged his next iron cast in the world of electronic music.
