In terms of spirit, I am very much reminded of the eponymous first album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Civilian feels earnest and honest and urgent.
“It is a bygone wish that proper precautions were taken, as all events today and forever, were preventable. It is a reminder to be prepared for the future as that is all we can do.”
A producer who takes his time to build artistic, unpredictable audio experiences for his listeners; delving into each story and process with an uninhibited desire to create and communicate and immerse.
As experiments go, I’d rate this as a highly successful one: nothing feels like it’s been crowbarred in, and this respect for the material has reaped genuine rewards.
Tthis track is utterly individual, compelling and worthy of listening time and discussion. It’s merits are thought-provoking, visceral and genuinely interesting.
An album of complex, hybrid sounds that somehow come together & work in harmony to create what is easily Cohen’s best work yet.
BABYLON-X offers an undeniable connection to the art of musical composition & creative expression. To take something that inspired him, and re-mould it in a personal, new, effective way, showcases a fine set of skills. Well worth listening to at volume.
Music can be more universal than words to express emotion. Regardless of your mother tongue, you’ll understand & build a personal interpretation.
A heavy & addictive track, instantly recognisable after a single listen. Eddie Vegas is back making grime music; here’s hoping there’s plenty more to come.
It’s a portrait of thousands samples. It’s as if someone had tapped into what was going into your ears & filtered it, like blood into your own heart.
When creating an Alien Skin album I enter a self imposed impenetrable vault. I never ask for advice as this will most likely derail the creative process.
There’s a strangely cinematic effect to the music, whereby the art of it stretches much further than what is audible. It’s a stunning effect.
