4 stars This is a dense album of contemporary electro/new age that wears repeated listenings well. This release differs from the pair's previous outing Frontiers primarily in the slower, murkier arrangements and far more deliberate delivery. While Frontiers provided the soundscape for slogging through the Everglades on a sunny day, Meridian is more of a night record, like the mist that follows a day of melted snow on a cold night. This is trudging across the tundra music. Sonic layers are revealed like a peeled onion to the patient listener. I'm somewhat new to the contemporary scene here but as time has gone on this one has risen to the top of my stack, and really is effective in hitting what I perceive they are aiming for. Not for the average prog listener of course but those inclined should find a lot to like.
