Steve Roach: Early Man/Early Man, Decomposed

Read "Early Man/Early Man, Decomposed" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Last fall Steve Roach released the first edition of Early Man as a collectors' item, a single CD encased in two slabs of slate rock. There were only 1000 copies made of this, and since there was demand for a more accessible format for this music, Roach arranged to re-release the album in a conventional CD ...

Steve Roach: Midnight Moon

Read "Midnight Moon" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Steve Roach, the brilliantly creative Arizona-based electronic composer, is always ready to try new sounds. In his Dust to Dust (Projekt, 1998), collaborating with Western guitarist and producer Roger King, he re-created the twangy guitar sound of the American West in the characteristic Roach style of vast drifting ambient. Here in Midnight Moon he continues that ...

Steve Roach and "Vir Unis": Body Electric

Read "Body Electric" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Roach fans, this is your wake-up call! After the calm ambient depths of SLOW HEAT and the Western driftwood of DUST TO DUST , BODY ELECTRIC bursts into the soundscape with a driving exultant rush. Not since 1997's ON THIS PLANET has Roach, along with his excellent collaborator “Vir Unis" and other fine sidemen, produced such ...

Jeff Greinke: Cities In Fog

Read "Cities In Fog" reviewed by AAJ Staff

This release sees a remastered version of Jeff's first album on disc one and new material, '95-'97 on disc two. This is dark, brooding, expansive ambience at its droning best. It is an aural diary of inner reflections upon the “everyday sounds and their inherent beauty" quoting Greinke. This is not ethnic, percussive, trance music. This ...

Vidna Obmana: Crossing the Trail

Read "Crossing the Trail" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Belgian composer, Dirk Serries, aka vidnaObmana has crafted a well polished, smooth stone that glistens in the river of Sound. His minimalist, trancewalk, dreamtime whispers on Crossing the Trail rates right up there with Steve Roach, Robert Rich, and Nik Tyndall, to mention just a few. In fact, Roach guests on this release having collaborated with ...

Vidna Obmana: Memories Compiled2

Read "Memories Compiled2" reviewed by AAJ Staff

This European ambient synths composer is easily one of the best out there. I have heard many a so-called “ambient” work that just left me flat-eared and ennui-laden, reaching for the remote to switch discs. Not so for Obmana’s creations. They light-shimmer, wave-sparkle, synths-ing, heart-echo, and brain-drone just exactly the right mix of off-world and terrestrial ...

Jeff Fayman & Robert Fripp: A Temple in the Clouds

Read "A Temple in the Clouds" reviewed by Michael Askounes

Robert Fripp is like a box of chocolates. One minute he's the evil scientist pumping out some of the most intense and disturbing metal ever recorded with the boys in King Crimson, and the next minute he's a new age disciple using his guitar to create incredibly soothing and “healing" textures. A Temple in the Clouds ...
