5 stars For their debut album, Quantum Fantay scores. These five musicians managed to deliver 50 minutes of delight. Listening to Quantum Fantay will certainly bring you reminiscences of Ozric Tentacles & Tangerine Dreams... and to a lesser extend of Mike Oldfield, Sigur Ros, Arkenstone, JM Jarre and (good) electronic productions of the early 80s. However, Quantum Fantay has a personality of his own and is by no way just a clone of Ozric Tentacles. If the first half of the album shows clearly the proeminent electronic influence (which is by no way a critic as these tracks are really great), the second half has a more mixed influence including more rock elements. The album alternate lower & upper tempo and manages always to bring you in a travel with the tracks. Well, I should avoid the term "song" here as this is a fully instrumental album. The title track and Lantanasch are maybe the high points of this album but, this said, there is no real weak track on it. Unfortunately, Quantum Fantay is not widely known (even in his homeland) and would certainly deserve more press coverage. Anyway, I invite you to discover the band's discography and especially this excellent album.
Subterranean | 5/5 |
