4 stars Bass Communion one of Steven Wilson's electronic music projects, which is more focused on sonic atmospheres, as such, therefore it is closer to the (unexistent) Electronic/Ambient tagging . No PT, or SW, electric guitar solos or vocals, (that explains the crowd). Anyway, BC's, second, two cd, album, holds the best part of this kind of intention. Imagine the atmospheres that his other bands visit, enhanced and bared-naked. Calm intensity, without detours. To get there he uses all his compositional talents, some parts of his darker past knowledge, his electric guitar simplified with a wah-wah pedal, and very creative, wind, synth and piano atmospheres, and in some tracks ("16 Second Swarm", "Drugged III" and "A Grapefruit in the World of Park"), the unmistakable presence of Robert Fripps "soundscapes". But basically, this second project is Steven Wilson (all instruments) accompanied only by Theo Travis flute and sax, as such. A real treat , if you like the genre. The kind of work which by rule (in my book, of course) will be a part of my collection, therefore the kind of record, I will recommend in this PA page as a ****4 star "Flawless and mysterious, environmental electronic music" album. Enjoy!.
