2 stars In my opinion, this is not the masterpiece you are being told.

One of my most passionate interest is in ambient music, which is a much wider genre than is represented her on ProgArchives. And I can report that EGYPTIAN KINGS, while promising, are mere neophytes in this broad and compelling genre.

Their music, in the vein of Steve Reich and Pete Namlook, has few of the subtleties characteristics of the masters of the genre. Progressive electronic music from giants such as FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON and THE ORB, neither of whom feature here, contains humanising characteristics to give the listener access to the music. However, 'Amalgest' offers a soundscape and little more.

A final thought: note that in the reviews here people talk about themselves and their experience while listening, and say very little about the music utself. That is because the tracks are insufficiently distinguishable from each other. Their length is arbitrary, as is their placement on the album. I wish the EGYPTIAN KINGS well, and hope they go on to great things.
