Homotopy
4 stars Sixth studio LP by Disen Gage is not Eclectic Prog the band is labeled with. It's certainly progressive and in a sense eclectic, ye the correct genre must be Avant-Garde, more precisely Musique Concrète: the source of the sounds on this album is mainly samples.

Aesthetically it feels like Dark Ambient. That is especially true for Trains, try it out at night on some creepy train station. The atmosphere of the other two tracks is harder to penetrate as the music is quite alien (especially on Planets, ha-ha, got it?). But that is exactly why the album is so good: it invokes unique feelings and offers a dive into some other realm for those who can catch the right set of mind. One good thing about experimental music is that it often tries to provide new aesthetics for us, bored by listening to the same thing for years, and it sometimes succeeds to do so. This, in my opinion, is the case.

It's very hard to access this work with stars. Yes, Nature is different, and it would probably be wrong to call it progressive rock due to the latter word. But this doesn't prevent, for instance, Tangerine Dream albums from enjoying highest marks and spots in all-time top. This album is a unique experience, which can also be highly pleasant if given a proper chance. Should I say that it's not something that would appeal to many progheads and call it "collectors/fans only" or should I praise the boldness of the band's decision to update its discography with this sudden atypical record and proclaim 4 stars?.. Funnily enough, the votes of the previous reviewers have divided equally. My choice is seen on the opposite side of the review.
