4 stars My first listening to "Midnight In Space" gave me a sharp shock, and the fact that there's no more information about them except this album gave me a shock again.

Would like you to listen to this dreamland at ease, relaxed. You can be impressed and immersed into mellow, dreamy, hallucinogenic synthesizer waves and gentle but poignant electric piano touches. No eccentricity, no perversity ... but only a virtual safe 'n' sound river flows under you, and you can fly over the sound stream. In the first track "Midnight In Space" you can feel as if you were into brilliant meteoric streams. Synth reverberations are like explosion of stars in the dark sky. Whatever you hear, you can get so comfortable to reach an entrance of a fantasy space named HYDRUS ... in Space you cannot help weeping.

Basically, throughout this album, the core essence is an electronic synthesizer soundwave here and there ... undoubtedly ... indeed quite a few have recommended them as an electronic outfit, but please listen to the creation thoroughly in the Midnight and you can feel more and more bulkier psychedelic background in it. (And yeah, the beginning of the fourth song "Milky Way" should be a serious Space Rock we can mention!) Not only mysterious and addictive female scat voices nor artificial, inorganic synthetic sounds but also, let me emphasize, some intervals between a sound and another, can raise you over the Space. Can we consider this stuff not as simply electronic progressive album but globally as a psychedelic psychotic wake of a flood ... until the last "Space Link-up", a mixture of all their psychospace elements?

Enjoy the lingering sounds upon the calm, fresh space. And let me say, do not come back from HYDRUSPACE. :-)
