4 stars After two seriously classy retro-ish electronic efforts, Valerio Lombardozzi (man behind the peculiar sound of H.D and owner of the independant label Minimal Rome) is back with a beautifuly sonic-cryptical ambient offering. Contrary to the two previous efforts, we could notice that this last is much more focused on spaced out-abstract sound textures built on extended synthscapes and micromal variations, consequently Completion.... is less punchy and moving but more magnetic and static. The opening theme develops a grandiose-slowly absorbing musical sound tapestry that introduces the listener into an unique world of intimate revelations and evocative dreaminess. This could be appreciated as the missing link between the macrocosmical splendor of Klaus Schulze's crystal lake and the haunted-minimal scoring of John Carpenter's prince of darkness. the second track Drafting With The Tiber Dwellers carries on the path of the Berlin School of electronics but with the incursion of very active hypno pulsating oscillations and always with this typically stylish propulsive sound. The 20th mystery is closer to H.D unique colourful electronic orchestration, combining ultra-mysterious sound waves and plastic-repetitive electronic bass patterns. Same pretty efficient ingredients in the menacing, shadowy and robotic Planning the final talbe. The album closes the musical journey with a relaxing electronic romance floating into deep space. Highly recommended, this album gets the elements to ravish fans of underground electronic music, whatever the sensibility (Kosmische psychedelica, futurist-pop, ambient impressionism...)
