Prog Reviewer
4 stars There's something deeply spiritual sounding about this album in the way that it melds prog with world music and even film score elements; the composition and layers or sound reach deep and pull out something that is distinctly modern yet maintains the reverence of the ancient. Somehow, what we end up with is crisp production and songwriting that focuses on beats you can groove to while incorporating gorgeous textures, floating female vocals, and a variety of influences which even incorporate styles like smooth jazz and metal (and I normally hate smooth jazz). At one point, we even see an appearance of what sounds like a variation on Elfman's Batman theme (I'm not complaining, it's got a great melody). The haunting narrations (which are not cheesy in the least bit) add a really nice touch to the ambiance and depth of the album. Overall, I don't feel like I'm listening to a particular kind of music when I listen to Moments. I'm just listening to lots of music; which is a good thing.
