4 stars A soundtrack for an imaginary retro-futuristic landscape

Simply my favorite from the spanish band. A mastered mixture of pretty melodies with hypnotic sequence-driven passages, yet rather accessible. Furthermore, there is no weak track on the album. Maybe the most electronic of the five first albums, as it features very few guitar and singing.

Our trip begin with "Prelude" a nice, short, soft and melancholic piece, in the tradition of previous NEURONIUM tunes. The title track evokes the wandering into the ruins of a lost, ancient alien civilization. A slow track, but with a robotic spacey feel. The journey ends with "The Neutron Age", the highlight of the album. A real masterpiece, with multi- layered synths flows, harmony and melody, psychotronic meditative passage and its aerial finish. Unreal.

This album deserves attention of TANGERINE DREAM, KLAUS SCHULZE or JARRE's lovers.

Unfortunately this record is last one with Carlos Guairo. The quality will decrease in the following albums.

Modrigue | 4/5 |
