5 stars If you can imagine two contradictory, fully dressed to their bare naked sonic width, melody lines, playing alongside their opposite mood and creating a very hard to turn down, hypnotic, progressive/electronic, DRONE (shoegaze) like, earthly/cosmic journey whose slow motion pace, demands full attention (heavy duty prog heads this is where you skip this review), well you are in for a ride!

Somehow this Oophoi & Tau Ceti "Celestial Geometries", 2001, just pulls it off by sheer great music composition. Two minds, without diminishing their own human souls, interact to construct this extremely well balanced friendship between, otherwise, impossible worlds into one.

To their many advantages, they take all the time needed, but not a mili-second more. A seven compositions, 70 minutes release, with unique identities on each track, makes this trip rich in these always counterpointed approaches and emotions.

As if the final destruction of the world met its match in its Big Bang! High flying hopes, deep down bottom fears simultaneously and with an extremely slow, minimalistic, yet highly attractive music composition to keep you hooked if you are willing.

*****5 PA stars.
