4 stars A very complicated ground, "electronic-prog" , is.

Too many monuments casting their shadows over the whole terrain. Synth's "sounds" on the long run are replicable, no matter your programming and modulation of waves skills, they all have a "universal tone". That is why they are known as "instruments". stand outside those impossing "shadows" you got to have your way with musical composition and creativity. Pete Namlook does it in this work, but in a "sly" way. He adopts this "shadows" to his own purpose and plays on top of them, with lets say, more contemporary electronic touches. (I will call them Dancefloor/Tactics).

Being that almost all Electronic/Prog gods are so entangled with these contemporary electrionic dancefloor tactics, he outstands because he has a better understanding of these electronic directions and their respective gadgets. He is by far better related to this stylings, so he in return shows these "gods" some new tricks.

On "Subconscious Worlds" he does not remain or gets caught by an specific direction or styling. He stays there long enough to make it rich and creative and then moves on to a different electronic idiom.

So, this turns out to be the precious value of this project. Also it lasts long-enough, "time-wise", and still retains, although its variety, the whole work as a single concept. Adding to that the PERFECTLY composed riffs, that grab you, to its "Subconscious Worlds' " world are a delight.

****4 "Highly recommendable work, in a very tough terrain" PA stars.
