More Info

Extended, vast, melodic soundscapes with both cosmic/spacey and romantic/emotional undertones and little in the way of powerful rhythms, although ultimately it's still an epic scale work! It opens with a seven-minute track that has a distinctly anthemic, almost militaristic, flavour to its slowly marching rhythms, but there’s a silent quality to the vari-textured lead work from harpsichord-like, and surrounding space synths, which together with the main leads that rise up on a big melodic wave, give the piece a full sense of grandeur that never becomes overblown. Following this comes the five-part, sixty-nine minute ‘Spirit Of The Plains’, a work that is mind-bogglingly vast in its scope and breadth.

Much of the music is cosmic, but that’s not to say it doesn’t have added melodies here, slowly moving rhythms there, and beautiful space synth swoops all over the place, while at its heart remaining a slowly gathering epic of gorgeous synthscapes. As always, no idea ever outstays its welcome, the mood is always one of warmth, depth and the music is positively galaxian in scope. The assorted textural variety of synth “voices” from strings to flutes, and deep bass to flowing cosmic synths, is both vast and spectacular, while the added melodic qualities and the overall openness of the soundscapes only serve to enhance that is an already quite incredible epic piece.

This disc’s seventy-nine minutes playing time passes almost imperceptibly as you settle down to some of the best UK cosmic melodic music of its time.
