Review by colorofmoney91
2 stars Creation is much better than Moon, but still isn't great. I'm actually very comforted that I only had to check Phrozenlight's next album to find some positive progression in sound. Creation is still an uneventful album, but this time we have changes in tone and positive ambience rather than a constant earsplitting drone. The atmosphere of this album is very airy and angelic, and kind of warm. It's very slow in tempo as most ambient tends to be, but this is what I call "background ambience" rather than the much more impressive "foreground ambience". The changes in tone are nice, and they don't have me checking to see if the track is messed up every couple of minutes from lack of direction.

Again, as with the last album, I'd like to see more progression. This album is actually quite pleasant to listen to, and includes nice field recordings of birds, but these tracks are long enough for some serious development rather than uneventful emptiness. Since this is only the second album and direct successor of the previous album I reviewed and it's already much better, I'm fairly excited to continue on my Phrozenlight journey. I'd feel safe in recommending this free album to fans of Eno's Music for Airports.

2 stars This third album of the Dutch android Phrozenlight offers something more than the previous "Moon".

As well as on Moon, the 5 tracks here don't contain anything else than spacey landscapes, but respect to Moon we can hear some more variations, something that can be interpreted as a chord or even a sequence of chords. The evident source of inspiration is "Zeit".

This means that "Space Folding" is not a boring track even though very few happens. "Floating Sounds" is made of the same ingredients but there's a "strings" sound which permeates the track and adds a classical-like mood. The ambient is more ethereal and sometimes the "chord" is major. I quite like this track.

"Walking In Paradise" is the longest track of the album, even if short respect to the current Phrozenlight's standards. It's another 18 minutes of spacey ambient music (or just sounds). I find this kind of music extremely relaxing and I like going in a sort of trance while listening but this is a consequence of having been a SciFi addict already around while Neil Armstrong was walking on the Moon long before Sting. If you aren't in this mental state it's very likely that you'll have stopped the player long before reaching the third track.

What's the difference between walking in Paradise and leaving Paradise? Apparently leaving is more fun. We have real chords with electronic noises coming and going. This can effectively be compared with the pink TD (but not so good, to be honest). Unfortunately it doesn't last long. After more or less three minutes we are back to the electronic flow of solar winds and subatomic particles that's omnipresent in any Phrozenlight's track. It's a pity that this guy has the technical skill to make good space rock but doesn't invest enough effort in creating anything more than spacey soundscapes.

"Scary Christmas" has a promising title, but at this point surviving to another 16 minutes of cosmic vacuum is very hard. Wanting to make a "siesta" after a heavy lunch this is a very good background, but if this is what you look for just grab ANY of the Phrozenlight's releases. In case you are planning to sleep longer there are "songs" 2 hours long, too.

I'll try some other albums to see if there's any difference but I'm not very optimistic and I suspect that I'll quit reviewing Phrozenlight quite soon.
