5 stars Unearthly connection!

The cosmos and the mechanical are the "spirits" within this 2006, FIVE THOUSAND SPIRITS "Quantum Consciousness". A quantum leap, music wise, in comparisson to their 1990's first two releases.

Raffaele Serra and Stefano Musso aka Alio Die, release 7 years later, this the first part of a two parts project that same year. An unparalleled adventure into the past and future of the famous 70's "cosmic music" electronics, shamelessly but WITHOUT ripping off nobody's language. They already have their OWN and it is more than perfectly woven, and it shows without question, in this highly modern and unique approach to yesteryear's electronic music canons.

It is industrial, as it is the heavens, as it is the pitch black cosmos or its multicolored stars. It is human yet monstrous. It is the droning "noise/ambient" music like Fripp & Eno's 1973, "No Pussyfooting" or their 1975 "Evening Star", in its level of experimentation and way ahead creativity, to kind of construct a referential, if so, let's say to polished new territories without avoiding the "pure electronics" experimentation side of that era.

It is prog/electronics, but way above the already stated (and over-stated) "Berlin School´s" electronic languages. It is humanly poetic, among non-human elements. The structured and emotional, yet detached, melody lines, conjure a memorable an intimate experience all way through, non stop, FLAWLESS!

5***** "Taking Progressive Electronics into the future" PA stars.
