Prog Reviewer
4 stars As a review, which was recommended by the Cloudland Canyon's founding members themselves mentions, this work is a total groundbreaking point in this band's career.

No explanations needed on why or how this transformation in music composition came upon, this "Aureliua", 2012, EP is great!

Progressive Electronics which are launched from an unothodox Berlin/West Coast departing point, blending micro-minimalistic melody lines with deep and attractive electronic environments.

The real deal, as in all great works, has to do with music composition or plainly how able are you to create musical structures which will be listened with the same enthusiasm they were originally written with.

No dense smoked atmospheres as previous works, opposite to that in this release, the structures are up front clean.

3 tracks travelling parallel yet asymmetrical paths. Each one depicting its own world. The 60's fashion has been stripped out to an undetectable minimum, in favour of a more contemporary electronic environment. No preachings nor prayings, mostly instrumental if not for some high- tec choruses and an 80's like scream in its best track "Light Falling", track 3, more there than here. All 3 tracks run in a mid/fast paced motion through pulses and electronic drum rhythms .

Fairly unique in its electronic music approach, perfectly structured and wrapped tightly around its enticing melody lines which keep you hooked till the last drop.

Made accessible by the band through their SoundCloud plattaform, to even out its limited edition publishing, this release is a sure ****4 PA's stars Progressive Electronics release.
