4 stars Colossus is the most known album from CYBOTRON and one of their best. Soundscapes displayed here are very similar to TANGERINE DREAM (Froese/Franke/Baumann period), but in a more melodic and symphonic way, with more distinct and rythmic parts, and less trance and repetitive loops. Furthermore, CYBOTRON introduces an instrument not very much used by electronic bands at this moment: the sax ! This adds quite a refreshing feeling to the music.

The main theme, Colossus, is a very cosmic and catchy sequenced piece, with interesting sound variations. The sax solo adds the mysterious ambiance. The next track, the mini-epic Eclipse, is more contemplative and dreamy. It shares strong resemblance to certain ELOY passages, vocals less. Medusa is the most TD-like piece with its meditative sequencer and robotic rythm. The album ends with Raga, a way more melodic, rocky and playful song, and announcing material on Implosion. Anyway, the final makes you fly in the air.

As if ELOY has made a baby to TD, CYBOTRON proves with Colossus that they have genuine ideas and an unique personnality. The record listens very well and should please all electronic/symphonic progressive fans. Prepare your spaceship !
