3 stars JEREMY comes from a musical family and he began to play piano at the age of six. When he grew older his father helped him to build a recording studio at home, and JEREMY later started his own record label called JAM Records. JEREMY is a multi-instrumentalist and his all-instrumental music is a mix between electronic music and '70's progressive and symphonic rock, with some hints from New Age and space rock. The music is reminiscent to CAMEL, EDGAR FROESE, GENESIS, JEAN MICHEL JARRE, The MOODY BLUES, MIKE OLDFIELD, PINK FLOYD, TANGERINE DREAM and VANGELIS. JEREMY plays everything on this album, and he's doing it very well too. His emotional guitar playing is reminiscent to David GILMOUR, STEVE HACKETT, Andrew LATIMER, Anthony PHILLIPS and Joe SATRIANI. This is his latest CD and he has left the Kinesis label to release this one on Brian Hirsch's label Moonchild. He did two albums for the Kinesis label, "Pilgrim's Journey" (1985) and "Celestial City" (1987). Unfortunately I have to say that I liked his previous two albums better than this one. The reason for that is that he's turned towards synth music with lesser guitar. It's a shame as I consider him being a very good guitar player. He's got a lot of different synthesizers, and besides the modern ones he has Mini-Moog and an ARP Omni 2. There's also very much guitar synth on this CD. Unfortunately there's also a lot of drum machines and sequencers. I'm quiet conservative, and in general I don't think that drum machines and sequencers belong in progressive rock. But as this is electronic progressive rock it isn't as annoying as it usually would have been. This CD should attract both fans of electronic rock and space rock and it's better than the average electronic albums today.
