Tangerine Dream - Mona Da Vinci (63039)
It took me some time before reviewing this last CupDisc from the gang
of Edgar Froese. After 2 superb albums in 'The Island of The Fay' and
'The Angel of the West Window', as well as a very good CupDisc (The
Gate of Saturn), 'Mona Da Vinci' fell me in the ears with the effect
of a cold shower by a chilly weather. I found that Edgar goes round in
circles by undoing his musical ties and by falling again in his moods
of candy rock electronic of the Miramar years. But with some
additional listenings, I noticed that 'Mona Da Vinci' was hiding some
nice musical pearls. Now, knowing that the fans of the Dream already
hurled themselves on 'Mona Da Vinci', whom addresses this review? Bah
… Maybe it could influence the choices of the thinkers of Eastgate
during the selection of another compilation or another Booster!

Played for the first time during the concert of Manchester, "Calumet"
begins with undulating pulsations à la Flashpoint. Echoing percussions
and sequences pounding on two ways shape a rhythmic skeleton which
collides against the stream on more sober keyboard riffs. Without
breaking the walls and with a typical melodious approach in what Edgar
lays since moons, "Calumet" pours without getting noticed too much and
depicts the atmosphere maybe too much calculated which reigns over
'Mona Da Vinci'. I think in particular of the title track which is
submerged by a ghostly aura. An aura of mystery which glides over a
rhythmic structure going round and round. That doesn't mean that it's
not good, it's just that it's too familiar and that we already heard
it so many times in the late TD years. Noticed that its progression
("Mona Da Vinci") is all the same rather appealing. The longer title
on this last Tangerine Froese's CupDisc, "Morpheus ' Light" is simply
wonderful. Of long and suave angelic breaths cast a little bit of dark
breezes on an intro which progresses such as a slow crescendo on a
nest of percussions and sequences typical to the bipolar rhythms of
the Dream. Edgar weaves a super melodious theme subdivided by resonant
sequences and riffs which fall on other sequences pounding frenziedly
under the breaths and winds of a poetic synth. It's a splendid track
where sequences strum a motionless rhythm. A rhythm trapped in a
superb musical fauna which sounds so much like good old TD.
Outstanding! "Phantoms and Oracles (Guitar version)" is an alternate
version of "Midas Touch", appeared on 'The Hollywood Years Vol. 2' in
1998. It's a big electronic rock from the Rockoon years. Sequences and
hopping percussions forge an unbridled rhythm and the electric guitar
of Zlatko Perica spits furious and incisive solos. "In The Storm of
Serenity" is a beautiful ballad introduced on a slow rhythm.
Surrounded by heterogeneous tones, the percussions are stunning and
fall with imagination while the guitar sculpts great languishing
solos. This is a nice track which hooks the hearing instantly.
"Hunting for Illusions" ends 'Mona Da Vinci' with a hyper-unbridled
rhythmic approach where heavy sequences, slamming percussions and a
starving bass line build a heavy and stormy rhythm. Mysterious, the
synth throws good dark veils and short soloing breaths giving to
"Hunting for Illusions" a harmonious depth which harmonizes pleasantly
to its furious pace.

It's a good think that I had to listen 'Mona Da Vinci' a bit more
before doing a final review, because it's not as fade as it may sounds
on first hearings. In fact it's an honest CupDisc which has its
failures as well as its small favourites, and this over and above the
fact that "Morpheus ' Light" is totally brilliant and a pearl lost in
a boiling sea of rhythms as superficial as well polished up.

Parsons, David - Jyoti (41237)
I can't help, but there is always something very unique and
fascinating when listening to the music of this ambient doyen from New
Zealand. David Parsons is highly experienced traveller through Middle
and Far East regions and he keeps on infusing his soundscapes again
and again with some exotic substances. David's music is wonderfully
mesmerizing, not only when listening through some mountain trekking,
but also for your home listening sessions. Title track "Jyoti" opens
graciously the album with immense floating electronics enriched by
David's distinctive flavours of metallic- and bell-like sounds. This
adventurous expedition just begun! "Incarnation" is deeply mysterious
with quite minimal structure, yet richly sounding with assorted
futuristic and sharp sounds and attractively spiced with generated
sounds of Tibetan chants and storm. David keeps the next composition,
"The Valley Below", again on the exotic highlands of main Himalayan
range . This piece merges unique sounds and atmospheres with some
intriguing choir- and voice-like ingredients, truly amazing! More
mechanized textures enter "City Of Spirits", later traversing into
more drifting, but spiraling and cascading structure with other unique
sounds reminding cicadas and voices. Quite minimal in structure, but
maximally imaginative! A pure sonic bliss, Mount Everest of the album
was just reached!!! More aerial and ethereal beauty invades "Tsaparang
Moon" with circling dreamy washes. "They Come" is quite mininal, but
colored with pulsing elements and mechanized voice-like sounds and
backed by tranquilized waves. A truly evocative and grandiose finale
of this beautifully hypnotizing and meditative piece of music that
captures infinite energy, spaciousness and mystery of Tibetan
monastery and Himalayan plateau regions!!!

Another strongly recommended travelogue adventure of this highly
respected sonic explorer!!! Thank you, Mr. David Parsons!!!
