28211 Fox, Robert - Phoenix Rising

Being a lover of Robert Fox's music, I heard his 18th opus, I just
don't know how many times since the day 1 that I put it in my
streamer. I was enveloped by the sweetness and impulses of passion
that surround this immensely poetic work, to the greatness of the
progressive New Age albums by Vangelis. New Age! Indeed, because
everything here is composed as a scriptwriter working hard to come for
a thrill, a sigh and even a tear of his scenario. PHOENIX RISING is in
the tradition of Robert Fox's good albums. Gentle rhythms, sometimes
flirting with a stroboscopic impulse of the sequencer, molded in sober
drums, orchestral arrangements, violin layers and a piano. A good
piano and its dark and nostalgic melodies are the musical columns of
the 7 tracks that never stay in the same place.
A swarm of chimes tries to get us out of sleep while the piano does
the opposite. Industrial chimes, as a big clock in the open air, make
a duel to this sad pia no, which jangles its uncertain notes in a
tumult of clatter. Dream State is coiling around our eardrums with a
soft melancholic melody that now rests on sober percussions. A cloud
of mist, hiding some whispers, and symphonic cymbal effects escort the
path of a more symphonic down-tempo than electronic, even if the
presence of the sequencer weaves a stroboscopic thread that moves back
and forth like an electric caress. A delicate staccato movement
structures a kind of gallop in foggy plains, leading Dream State
towards a passage of ambiences for weeping violins, testifying to the
many changes in the titles of PHOENIX RISING. It's under the rain that
Paris Rain also proposes a down-tempo led by sober percussions too and
the harmonic riffs of an acoustic guitar. The staccato is light and
moves slowly under the thunder and clouds of violins that also
surround the Paris sky. There are children playing in this rain, as
well as a street musician playing accordion. The setting does really
Paris under the rain. Lana's Theme presents the beautiful artificial
voice of Lana who whispers these heavenly purrs that blend into the
dreams of a synthesizer in saxophone mode. The piano is always present
and hammers its notes with a Vangelis fingering. Moreover, the
different sound effects, including rattling sounds like fragments of
tails of rattlesnakes, add this totally disconnected vision so dear to
the Greek musician. Waiting for the Horizon is a title that sways
between electronic soft rock and Lana's operettas, in an
end-of-the-world setting that seems to be inspired, at least for the
gas explosions, of Blade Runner. Flirting with a Code Indigo approach,
the second phase offers a bouncy electronic rhythm with a good synth
solo that loses its tune in the chants of Lana.
Star Crossed is a purely an electronic track. A light rock for a
general public that evolves in phases, after the few explosions that
mark its path. Its introduction proposes a good melody, always harmo
nized by the piano, with a staccato in the background which is
modulated by a sequencer. The structure evolves through a livelier
phase, a more symphonic one and finally a more progressive
exploration. Lady of Light is an answer to Lana's Theme but offers
much more intense and poignant passages. A tic-tac makes resonate its
suite of metallic clanging while inviting a bewitching bank of clouds
filled of melancholy. A seraphic voice sample leaves the depths of the
void to whisper the sweet humming that we heard from Lana's Theme.
Robert Fox puts the package to complete PHOENIX RISING. The
title-track changes skin some 150 seconds after its first tick to
become half-slow. With just enough energy to flirt with a down-tempo.
The rhythm hosts a series of riffs that give as much weight as Lara
gives passion with her sleepy voice. The piano remains the main axis
of the melody with its fluid notes that run on a sober pattern of
electronic percussion and explosions of riffs. The arrangements are up
to the signature of David Wright, who did the mastering on this album,
and lead us to an ambient shift after the 4th minute point. Lana is
singing louder with the very agile tsiit-tsiit of the fake cymbals.
Subsequently, Phoenix Rising explodes into a heavy rock that no doubt
shows that PHOENIX RISING was designed in embers, ashes and pain.
Another ambient passage is followed by a slightly livelier structure
before Phoenix Rising ends its hike in the ashes of its structure.
Another very nice Robert Fox album. What more can be said!

gr-039 Stearns, Michael - Morning jewel

It took time, but I eventually entered in it! I had to pass through
the fights of the farmyard's pride to finally enjoyed this delicious
Michael Stearns' ambient album. Initially written and realized in
1979, MORNING JEWEL is an album which was fast gobbled up by the New
Age and meditative music market. Became out of print soon after its
release in vinyl and cassette formats, the opus knew a second breath
in CD in 1983 and was finally dusted and remasterised in 2000 on the
Dutch label Groove. In spite of the very positive criticisms, MORNING
JEWEL remains a rather underestimated album, the press and the fans
preferred to talk much more of Chronos, Planetary Unfolding or still
Encounter. Nevertheless, it's a very beautiful album of ambient music
which drew most of the main lines of his immortal M'Ocean.
Morning begins like a hot morning gilded by the rays of sunshine.
Chirpings of birds decorate the awakening. One would easily imagine to
b e on a Sunday morning in the city as in the suburb, or still in
countryside as in forest, even in a rain forest, with this symphony of
birds' singings which enchant the ears. The music is soft with slow
synth layers which pile up and scatter, such as clouds fleeing the
fire of the sun, letting filter a soft seraphic choir which caresses
the concerts of the birds. The synth injects gleaming reflections
which sparkle of one thousand sonic prisms while quite slowly we hear
deaf pulsations beat a slow rhythm which pulses like a slow death.
Suddenly, the listener falls over to another universe. More noisy, and
rather uncomfortable, the sonic motif of Morning dresses itself of a
strange rustic envelope where we hear a fight of roosters roarings in
a farmyard where some children's whispers and the rustles of their
activities hide the sweetness of a musical act as much poetic as the
tears of M'Ocean. This short noisy interlude dissipates little by
little, pushing literally Morning in an in t ense ambiospherical
crescendo full of passion and drama with a concert of pads from a
synth full of sonic colors as much paradisiacal than their morphic
enveloping embraces. Sounds of footsteps stay and get lost without
degrading all the submerging sweetness of the 2nd portion of Morning
which spreads a sublime sonic monument of ambiences in a long quiet
passage where the discreet harmonies which swirl in a passionate
spiral are scattering some sonic crumbs which will serve as rampart to
the sublime M'Ocean. Very good and that would be the paradise without
those sound samplings of the pride of the roosters. But I guarantee
you that one gets used to it and that we forget them! Jewel is a
magnificent ode to serenity so dear to the repertoire of the American
synth wizard who, little by little, unveils his bonds with the waters
and the cosmos. Some slow and morphic synth layers are floating like
winds which murmur solitude, scattering lines of seraphic voices of
which the piercing chan t s caress the bitterness of the loneliness.
It’s as much intense as poignant and Michael Stearns spreads a sublime
sonic pallet with soft synth layers which glitter and sparkle in a
deep ambient movement where the Earth's crust kisses the stars. This
is a great lesson on the art of building ambient music as much
meditative as melodious. It's beautiful to hear these synth lines to
sing and cry, unfolding moments of morphic tenderness whose
equivalence I still don't know to this day. Certainly, I can say that
this is the cradle of Chronos or M'Ocean, but I haven't listened
Planetary Unfolding nor Lyra Sound Constellation yet, except that the
whole thing inhales so much the charms of these two albums. It's very
beautiful and suddenly I don't think any more of the roosters!

Due to the fact that we use a special shipping service that provides
the shipping of parcels etc we don't have to adjust the shipping prices
at this moment. One of the reasons is that because of you our costumers
we can keep these prices so low. With over 1500 parcels shipped last year
we can stay in the lowest shipping prices!
I am glad we are one of the few suppliers of EM that did not have to raise
their shipping prices. So for the 4rth year in a row they stay the same!!
