Review by admireArt

4 stars Everybody deserves a break (or two).

Starting with the wrong foot my acquaintance with Gustavo Jobim's music ( two of his 2014 cds, which I reviewed one of those here in PA), I gave myself a chance and downloaded for free this time a third ( at Bandcamp), his 2014, "Retrospect-2013" which contains sections or songs of four of his 2013 releases: "Connection", "Manifesto", "Stream" and "Inverno".

Kind of a prolific artist Gustavo Jobim turned out to be, which of course has to do also, with the more accessible recording tools, artist nowadays possess or have access to, as opposed to the super-expensive and time consuming recording studios of yore. Anyway, this compilation works wonders!

Traveling different electronic routes and moods, the pieces fit each other perfectly. Starting with an epic song like a "retro" blend of Vangelis and JM Jarre, being enjoyable the rest to come is even better. Amazingly rich, taking into account the lenght of this cd (less than an hour), the spirit of experimentation never subdues the focused creativity and perfection of its songwriting.

To sum it up, cosmic, industrial, slow and fast, alien environments, with the precise splashes and doses of pure and manipulated electronic noise, original in its progressive/electronic songwriting, but also sparing time for a beautiful moment of acoustic piano meditation (track 8).

The dynamics and disposition of the songs enhance each one's attributes, but also the whole as an album, as to sound as a single effort and not the sum of four. Talking about four....

****4 "the best things in life are for free, although contributing to the artist is even better " PA stars.

Review by admireArt

2 stars A factory of useless noises!

I never learn.... Anyway! Gustavo Jobim's 2014, two piece album "Underground", is, to put it simply, unbearable. Maybe that was his intention. Who knows, who cares? (As I write, I am listening to it for the 2nd time.)

If you kind of missed or skipped 70 years (give n take) of electronic music experiments, maybe, and maybe then, you will fall for this raw electronics,experimental project.

I went to his Bandcamp page, bought this one and downloaded another one for free. I sure wish it had been the other way around, although I have not listened yet to my other pick! (also 2014.)

Ok! Two 25-30 minutes long "compositions" , based, to call it somehow, in the conceptual tone of raw, abstract, electronic experimentation with noises. So, what's new? Absolutely nothing, not even on the "sound-programming" mode. Năo!, Nicht!, Ni madres! , 別, Not at all!

Pretentious electronic "Art", for those audiophiles who never have had the privilege of playing, less owning, a synth, forget about 2 or more!

As for me, I repeat, a useless factory of "a zillion times heard", cacophonic, raw, experimental and over-indulgent progressive electronics.

**2, " I don't fall for this pseudo intellectual "Art" (which is not necessarily intelligent) , that only exposes the lack of creativity and original composition in music.", PA stars.

Retrospect 2013
Gustavo Jobim Progressive Electronic

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Retrospect 2013 is the second compilation by the talented and prolific musician from Brazil. Contrary to Retrospect 00-2012, this one is entirely made up of tracks taken from albums he recorded and/or released in 2013: Connection, Manifesto, Stream and Inverno. Again there are 9 tracks, eight are his usual electronic stuff, with strong influences of the Berlin school of the 70´s krautrock scene, and one is a piano piece, where he shows the acoustic minimalist style of songwriters like Erik Satie.

Although I´m not an electronic music fan, much less an expert at that genre, I found this CD to be extremely well done and more varied than the first, maybe because the first track Biomekanik reminds of Kraftwerk, one the few electronic groups that I really liked at the time. But overall this is a very good CD and even if I do prefer a more melodic and "normal" approach on music I found Jobim´s music of the highest quality, someone who understood and learned from the masters but still has an original and personal touch all around. The production is top notch. And I also liked very much the artwork of his albums.

If you like electronic music you shouldn´t miss the chance to get to know this artist. And I think both compilations are a fine intro to his already large discography. Both are available for free at his site (www.gustavojobim.com).

Rating: 4 stars, no doubt.

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
4 stars Gustavo Jobim is a progressive electronic musician from Brazil who has quite a prolific career since the early 2000´s. Most of his works are heavily influenced by the electronic music of the early 70´s, specially those of the German school of electronic music. Small wonder one of his first albums is called In Search Of Berlin. But he also has some acoustic piano works where Erik Satie seems to be another source of inspiration. He also cites Ian Landi and Christian Caselli as inspirations and helpers for a couple of his albums.

Retrospect 00/12 is, like the title implies, his first compilation released in 2012. There are 9 tracks, with 52 minutes of music, including two piano solos. Everyone knows I´m no electronic music expert, but I did enjoy a lot his tunes through the ProgBrazil website and, to me at least, his works sound just as good as any of the ones I´ve heard like Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream (their early works to more precise, not the more melodic sounds of the late 70´s).

I think this album is a good starting point for anyone who wants to know this talented artist. All his discography is available through his official website for streaming.

Rating: four strong stars. Excellent addition even for non electronic fans like me.
