Time & Motion is the final part of the "Time Trilogy" albums.
All three are available here on MusicZeit.
Sequences, atmospheric passages and soaring leads mixed with the driving forces of English School aggressiveness and percussion.
Based on the format of the previous two "Time" albums, Timeslip and Timestorm, Time & Motion also adds a new element with a carefully crafted virtual lead guitar sound, lashing out heavy chords and screaming solos.
Review by David Law
This is the third in his 'Time' series and once again, right from the beautifully mellotron washed opener, he comes up with a real Berlin School pleaser. Wonderful thick analogue sounds abound supporting the Tron and of course sequences take a leading role both in melody and as an exciting driving force. There is also a gentler, even tender side portrayed. I would even go as far as to describe it as pure joy, especially in the use of nicely bouncing rhythms and uplifting virtual guitar. It just wouldn't seem right though for such an album to be in a completely 'positive' mood so there are also the occasional brooding moments such as on the third track, the rhythms this time imparting a dark determination battling against the more euphoric sequence, a searing lead line arcing between the opposing forces. If anything the last track is even more powerful, the snarling lead and earth shaking pulsations being quite devastating, finishing proceedings with a real snarl. It reminded me a little of the heavier moments from Edgar Froese's 'Ages'. If you are a fan of analogue sounding sequencer and Mellotron based music this should be well up your street. I certainly enjoyed it immensely. Every track was worth a listen but especially that last twenty-three minute piece was quite awesome!
