posted a review of Public Image Ltd.* - The Flowers Of Romance. over 5 years ago
Expertly, delightfully, exquisitely deranged pop music. The sound and the odd-ball patterns of the drums are very prominent in most of the "songs" and is very minimal and machine-like in nature, almost as if anticipating the wave of electro and hip-hop ... See full review

posted a comment on Kraftwerk - Tour De France. over 6 years ago
Maybe this was re-mastered not to try to "improve" on the original but with the creative intent to somewhat emulate (early) Aphex Twin production values, coming with a lack in dynamics. In that case, not a too bad of a job was done.

1/2 primitive mechanic dark rhythm, 1/7 repetitive dreamlike tone, 1/4 vague sounds coming from and going to god knows where, 1/8 rustling sounds. A break in the rhythm while all other sounds keep on gently bouncing off each other, some beats return but ... See full review

I was introduced to Stravinsky's Firebird Suite through this recording by Tomita and although there must be other great recordings by renowned orchestras, Tomita's is just as valid an interpretation as any other and a very imaginative and quality one at ... See full review

posted a comment on Messiaen*, Yvonne Loriod - Visions De L'Amen. over 8 years ago
Messiaen devised his own musical language far beyond conventional Western composition techniques and harmonies. His music is filled with beauty, adoration and passion but also speaks of the dangerously close relationship between total despair and pure ... See full review
posted a comment on 23 Skidoo. over 8 years ago
If there ever was a musical equivalent to the concept of 'Total Football', 23 Skidoo would be the embodiment of that. Each musician capable of taking the position of the other without dropping a beat.
posted a comment on Toru Takemitsu - Coral Island / Water Music / Vocalism Ai. over 8 years ago
Fascinating sensitive and poetic tonal arrangements that might have more in common with modern and/or Japanese painting techniques than any musical tradition. Although Coral Island for soprano and orchestra has familiar contemporary sounds and snippets, ... See full review
posted a comment on 23 Skidoo. over 8 years ago
And based on their 1987 performance in Kortrijk Belgium, one hell of a live band too. They would re-interpretate their songs on the go while taking turns on bass, drums, percussion and electronics and play their music without any breaks between "songs". ... See full review
posted a review of Remko Scha - Machine Guitars. over 10 years ago
The premise of setting up machines to play guitars sounds much like stripping music from emotion. So be it. Remko Scha's Machine Guitars liberates sound from emotions that otherwise would obscure purity. Hypnotic rhythms, intricate tunings and the ... See full review

Great finger snapping, laid back, melodic groove (+/- 122 bpm) in 5 not too different versions with organ/synth/guitar/vocal patterns that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Perfect balance between groove, melody, composition and dj ... See full review

Masterpiece, from beginning to end. Produced like a pop album, the music is bursting with originality and sensuality. Sakamoto is in total control of composition, tone colour and mix, without sacrificing anything to spontaneity. Most early eighties ... See full review
posted a review of Assadin - Waterworld E.P.. over 11 years ago
Creative Techno at its best. No floor stompers here but very imaginative build ups, breakdowns, twists and turns, without loosing control of the dance flow. The only problem might be the tempo. At 33rpm and -8, these tracks are still some 128bpm!
posted a review of Miramar - Test Tunes. over 11 years ago
The real test tune gem here is Print. Probably conceived after all the hard work for the past 3 tracks was finished and everybody could relax. Starting with loose bleebs, then adding unpredictable organ riffs and and at the right moment a solid but ... See full review
