Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Spacetime Continuum (a.k.a. experimental ambient maven Jonah Sharp) serves up a dependable if sometimes wandering ambient groove, split through a prism of acid jazz and light drum & bass. Less beat-driven than his last record, Emit Ecaps, Sharp's percussionist background seeps through the jerky rhythms of "Biscuit Face" and the detached time signatures of "Beveled Edge," all in the service of song textures and arrangements that absorb the listener, yet never truly catch fire. The sound can even be a bit cold in spots, relaxing on static beats that never really go anywhere. However, preferring to rest on the velvety edge of the dance floor has its rewards for the headphone-wearing wallflower, who will find treats in the sax solos and lounge-room sweep of "Freezone" and "Further Down the Road." --Matthew Cooke

Not only is this the best album by Spacetime Continuum, it's one of the best albums I have ever heard in my life. It's been three years since they released it and I still never find myself bored with it. I keep looking for similar music and have never found anything truly worthy. This album is a masterpiece; it defines beauty. I've never heard any electronica better. I am a better person for owning this CD and knowing such brilliance exists.

In 'Double Fine Time' you can really feel the fusion jazz in this. It's the genious of experimental ambient DJ Jonah Sharp. The saxophone used on tracks 2, 3,4 and 8 are Brian Iddenden (King of Iddland). Sharp lends his talents on the synths, sampler, drums and rhodes. Saxophone and harmonica on track 3 and 11 is Damien Masterson.

In 'Mircojam' you can feel the ambient grooves with synths, drums and lots of bass with harmonica. Best sax sounds come from 'Freezone' and 'Further Down the Road.' 'Beveled Edge' are uneven, detached rhythms. 'Compound' has a spiritual, yet spacy sound lots of synths and samplers work into this number. This album's driven on the heavy fusion jazz side and that's fine for all jazz enthuasists. I liked it as a smart arrangement that's good to dance to. This is good driving music as well.

Do you like jazz? At other times do you like electronica? Well this may be an album for you as the two genres are blended quite nicely primarily by the fine sax solos. For purists this is not for you as the the mixture created is neither elctronic nor straight ahead jazz. This is music to fill the void, when you don't want to be distracted by lyrics and you want the music to flow through you. Atmospheric music to elevate the mood. Most of the instruments are played by Jonah Sharp aka STC and he does a good job on sythns,sampler, drums etc.This music is unobtrusive and yet invades your psyche. With titles like "microjam",freezone","spinout" and "further down the road" the CD's songs kind of flow into a conceptual blend of modern lounge music that does not challenge but invites the listener to enjoy the musical journey. Only energetic enough to maybe get you out of your chair for a beverage to mellow out to the groove set by STC.

Let's put it this way. This is more Jazz then electronic/ambient. I was expecting a lot from this CD after hearing numerous songs of the hidden gem Astralwerks mix sampler cd Werks Like a 12 Inch, as well as a few from a friend. This was a massive dissapointment, and is one of those cd's that probably is best served by me giving it to my mother. Jazz isn't my thing, and that's what the great majority of this is.

Although it's been ten years since this was released, this album still sounds fresh today. Jonah Sharp explores the space where jazz and electronic music meet. It retains all the qualities of past Spacetime releases but adds a new layer to the sound. It's got the otherworldy atmospherics of Sea Biscuit intertwined throughout along with the future electro beats and moody detroit chords from Emit Ecaps. On top of this he now adds live instruments like sax, harmonica, and Rhodes piano. Instead of just sticking to drum machines, he samples himself playing drums and resequences them to devastating effect. This is some sick drum programming on par with Jazzanova and the like. This album is dripping with mood and emotion. Listen to it whilst driving through the city at 4:00 am. It knows where you've been.

I reserved a copy of this album for its release, and I could not be more satisfied. Satisfaction is what Double Fine Zone is all about -- satisfying the jazz, the get-up-and-dance-'cause-it's-just-too-good-not-to, the mellow like Jello, and the spiritually beautiful parts of your body and soul. This definitely fits into my all-time favorites group: it's so damn fine it's almost criminal. If you do not at least HEAR THIS you will have missed out on a chance to experience perhaps THE BEST music out there. I'm simply thankful to have found it -- and yes, life is a little bit more complete because of it. Buy it for your soul's sake!

Not as well received as his other albums, 'Double Fine Zone' finds Jonah Sharp using a much more organic approach with real instruments, rather than electronic equipment, on some tracks. The album has a distinct jazz flavour.
Fans of Jonah Sharp's music will be very pleased with this release as we know his music never stays the same. We always expect a change, album from album. On this album his fondness of Jazz comes to the fore, with some tracks being long jazzy jams with a veritable orchestra in the background.
Another new direction for Sharp and another great album.

I'm a pretty big fan of Spacetime Continuum, and I loved loved loved Alien Dreamtime, Sea Biscuit, and Emit Ecaps to death. I looked forward to this album eagerly, but when it came out, I was really disappointed. While there are a few good tracks on here, mostly it is rather boring and poorly constructed. This album is definitely not worth buying new; pick it up used if you're a completist.
