4 stars Although "Colony" is not the most progressive of LYNNE's material, its impeccable production alone is worth the price of the album; its pristine sound, a veritable model of modern technology. But all is not 'flash in the pan", here, as the music on "Colony" rocks high and mighty in addition to producing a mesmerizing array of neon colours in the listener's mind.

Although very atmospheric, it is laden with crunching guitar passages, powerful melodies and 'oomph' bass lines that will test the best speakers/headphones on the market. Some tracks feature pulsating rythms that hit you right in the kisser when you least expect it ("Messages", "Hyperdrive Stimuli" and "No Looking Back"). "Mind of the Visionary" is perhaps the most progressive track as it features a variety of colourful themes and mind-boggling arrangements. As for "One Step to Paradise" (so appropriately named), it will have you stomping on anything you can get your hands, feet, elbows, chin, etc. on. Finally, the album features two slow and absolutely blissful tracks, "Ypsilon" and "Crystal Vista"; these soar like a space ship silently drifting into space.

Don't expect anything profound, here; this is well-dressed yet highly accessible music. By the way, the CD sleeve sates: "This album is dedicated to all those brave visionaries who work in the field of research and planning for human colonization of other planets". For a taste of "Colony", check out BJORN LYNNE's website for some eye-popping, jaw-dropping videos set to its music. Sit back and enjoy!
