4 stars A colourful, vivacious album. "A Series of Related Dreams" was released as Emme PHYZEMA's fourth creation in April 2020, almost at the same time as her third album "Chronic Bronchitis". She says this stuff focus upon such 'dream' or 'sleep' enough that she might create and produce with her strong intention for making it dreamy an psychedelic ... easily imagined. Yes, in spite of her last offensive, supersonic album, this work sounds full of melodic, dramatic, and psychic atmosphere in a modulating manner. Such a musical phenomenon would happen not due to her change of heart but another motivation of hers, I guess.

Thanks to the first track "Eighty-Four", you can get immersed in her mysterious melody brilliance. Strongly with ethnic movements (leaning towards sorta Japanese Folk named Enka really), repetitive, hallucinogenic, but sometimes dynamic, eccentric phrases catch your heart strictly. Based upon complicated rhythmic elements and melodic kinetics, the following track "Transmission" amazes you so badly. Wondering where you would be taken by this crazy stuff. Of course, what a fantasy kind of lyrical battle between her piano and guitar plays in "Ode to F's" is. Beautiful gorgeous melodic lines should knock you.

"Croakaine" is a deeply hard, psychic track despite a 2 and half a minute short one, full of strict guitar barks and serious drumming. Every heavy / metal fan could love it."Happy...ish" reminds me of Le Silo's funny, funky, and drunken style of sound. An enjoyable song filled with neat but destructive moments makes you happy-ish definitely (yeah I'm happy too, needless to say). "Paranoid Delusion", actually my favourite one, sounds quite illusive via every single weird phrase. You should keep your mind in a good dream just in case you lose yourself by this paranoiac, delusive stuff.

"According To" is another elegant, obsessive one. Guess she would have explain her dreammare and fantasia through such a fantastic track like this. "Ode to Those with Lethargy" is slightly so loose that you would let the big tension out of your shoulders temporarily, but it might be sorta notification of toughness ... In "Veridian City" she might've launched a pain of 'wake-up' outside of her inner world I imagine? With the last keyboard-oriented distortion "Wewlf" you could support all of her mind.

Finally, let me say please that it should be important for her not what but how she show and express via her inner world. In this sense we could mention this album melodically stand upon the opposite side of the previous one but psychologically in the similar vein. Opinions?
