4 stars This is the latest from ALPHA WAVE MOVEMENT and comparing it with the only other release by this project that I own("Architexture Of Silence") i'd rate this one a little higher as I find it more to my tastes with a slightly darker tone to it at times. Once again the cover art is worth mentioning as they are on almost all of his releases.

"Immerse" features spacey sounds that wash in and out slowly as some relaxed keyboard-like sounds join in. They are eventually replaced by faster moving electronics as the spacey waves continue. An electronic beat before 7 minutes arrives before it turns very spacey late to end it. "Earthen" has these spacey synths that bleep, flow and twitter. Sounds start to pulse slowly after 5 minutes then piano-like sounds join in before it turns back to those spacey sounds drifting in and out.

"Pulseforms" has this beat that builds in the dark atmosphere as spacey sounds start to wash in and out. An electronic beat arrives 4 minutes in as the spacey sounds continue. "Source" has these dark droning sounds that come and go as piano-like sounds arrive around 3 minutes as the dark drones continue. "Helios" again is dark as spacey sounds drift in and out. "Forest" has these slow moving waves as keys and bird-like sounds help out.

I've really enjoyed the two albums I have by this project, and while I prefer RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL and HELDON I can't help but recommend ALPHA WAVE MOVEMENT highly to all you Electronic fans out there.
