4 stars Another installment in David Hendry's space rock project OHead. Resurgent Resonance was released five years after the last one, Visitor and it's pretty much in a similar vein, although a bit more calm and more ambient. The overall feel of this album is Porcupine Tree circa The Sky Moves Sideways. A great deal of the more ambient parts of this album reminds me of "Moonloop". "Valley of Veils" bears more than a passing resemblance to Edgar Froese's Epsilon in Malaysian Pale, which I'm sure was totally intentional, as Mr. Hendry was a big fan of Froese/Tangerine Dream, and I'm certain he was paying tribute to Froese as he passed away in 2015. Other parts of the album have a bit of a Berlin School feel to it, while other parts occasionally flirt with heavy metal, particularly "Serpent in the Sky". "Blue Pyramid" and "Blue Pyramid Pt, 2" is close to Pink Floyd and early Porcupine Tree territory, with Gilmour-like guitar and "Moonloop" type of ambience. He gets some guests on this album, most notably John Simms of Clear Blue Sky (yes, the heavy rock band who recorded for Vertigo in the early '70s). The Ozric influence seems less than on previous albums (since Gaia's Garden, at least, as Steps Across the Cortex and Silent Universe is more like a techno/electronica version of the Berlin School sound). If you've enjoyed what Hendry/OHead has been doing since Gaia's Garden, you should give this one a try.
