3 stars Ashra changes its style and its line-up with this one. After the electronics of New Age of Earth and the spacey guitars of Blackouts, here comes the disco-rock of Correlations ! Not as cosmic as Manuel's former albums, but quite energic and refreshing ! No long epic tracks, the album consists in enjoyable short and mid-length dancing and floating songs.

Ice Train opens the show and sets immediately the ambiance. Its pulsing rythm and powerful guitar will take you directly to the heights. More disco-oriented, Club Cannibal has some hypnotic passages. Then, the spirit of New Age of Earth comes back with Oasis, a soft but sometimes a bit lazy song. The next track, Bamboo Sands sounds like a mixture of Giorgio Moroder and Mike Oldfied. Groovy, and enchanting too. In contrast, Morgana Da Copa is the spaciest passage of the record. Very relaxing, the tune makes you travel to stange worlds. Manuel's guitar playing is very inspired. In spite of being the longest song of the disc, Pas De Trois is quite disappointing, irritative and repetitive. No time to waste here. The floydian mood of Phantasus concludes well the album and could have last longer...

Dynamic, uneven but various, fun but trippy, the third release from Ashra goes away from their former acts. Not essential, but still good, Correlations will make you have for sure a relaxing time ! 3,5 stars !

Modrigue | 3/5 |
