3 stars NEURONIUM is a spanish electronic band that combines 70's hypnotic electronic sequences - in the style of TANGERINE DREAM or KLAUS SCHULZE - with more accessible, melodic elements. Their debut album "Quasar 2C361" shows interesting promises.

The title track is a dreamy 26 minutes suite with a slow progression. It alternates soft and sequences passages, with apparitions of guitar and flute, and finishes with a pretty finale. Although a bit too long, the overall is enjoyable.

"Catalepsia" is pleasant atmospheric tune featuring nice spacey guitar. The short "El Valle De Rimac" introduces the melancholic ambient mood that will later become a trademark of the band. The ending track "Turo Park" theme has reminiscences of PINK FLOYD's "A saucerful of secrets" finale.

With this album, NEURONIUM is still building its personality. Sequences and melodies are still discrete, compositions are rather homogeneous. As a consequence, "Quasar 2C361" is one of their most aerial and contemplative record. Not innovative, but nice soft relaxing music.

Modrigue | 3/5 |
