1 stars Really unreal - must be a ZOMBI!

These two guys are obviously inspired by Tangerine Dream. Trouble is that whilst they may sound like TD, they completely fail to absorb the difference between layered synths, or the same that actually has substance to it - for good measure.

In my previous blurbs on their other albums I didn't spare this band. This time I can't be even that generous when it comes to this album. Here, I am confronted with extremely boring soundscapes. Somewhat reminiscent of very early TD with the dark, cosmic approach. So what's wrong here then? Simple. There is no trace of substance to any of these indulgent pieces that go nowhere.

OK, this is Zombi's first release and probably done when they were still adolescent, thinking that any sound may equal artistic merit. How on earth did they manage to get a contract for this?

I can relate to complex, or simplistic forms of expressions happily - as long as they have substance. This effort however, is as close to the pits as I've heard in a long time.

The most frustrating part is that every now and then, these cats come up with something very pleasing, almost by mistake. Not here though.

BORA | 1/5 |
