5 stars Pittsburgh-based Zombi is the duo of Steve Moore on bass and keys and Anthony Paterra on drums and percussion. Although labeled as progressive electronic on this site, their sound to me is an even mix of space rock and symphonic prog, featuring spacey keyboard riffs and lush soundscapes lying atop a rhythm section comparable to Rush's Lee/Peart combo. Some have compared this to a mix of Tangerine Dream or Heldon with Rush. Another possible description might be a guitar-less instrumental version of Argentinian proggers Nexus with Geddy Lee making appearances here and there. The keyboard work isn't in the same league as a Rick Wakeman or Tony Banks, but it's remarkably melodic and spacey (and better than any solo album either of them have ever released). I can't think of many albums that invoke astronomical imagery in my head better than this one. An incredibly enjoyable listen! Easily one of my best purchases in the last few years and well deserving of masterpiece status.
