After an opening bit that quite frankly made me chuckle every time I reviewed it, the journey begins in a beatless realm of shifting light and shadow. Alien jazz rolls by, a bit of pure funk from another world, melding into a unique, pulse-driven piece with Kraut-rock cred. Quieter then, echoing keys and soft electronic accents to bring you back down as the flow returns to more silken textures. The voyage heads briefly into space--once around the outer planets and then back for a fiery, guitar-powered re-entry that settles into a cooling, synth pad cruise and the hush of stillness. At the end, something on the folksier side--but with deep electronic genes.
