So I've got this new game I play on my headphone commute these days. I put my iPod on shuffle and pretend that my entire music collection is a radio station. As the tracks come on, I must guess the artist and the album. Given that my library is always growing, and that I listen to about a dozen new albums a week, this task is not as easy as it sounds. I'm happy to report that I'm most of the time spot on, and the only time I'm off is when it's an album I haven't yet heard. I do this until I land on a track that I can't recognize OR an album that I haven't reviewed yet. In either case, I queue up the entire album from the beginning, immerse myself with sound, and if I like it, prepare to share these words with you. So if you ever wonder how I decide on what to cover next, this is one of those `somewhat random' takes, that I use for picking out the next victim of my reviews.

That is how I arrive at the track by The Flashbulb. In fact, whenever Benn Jordan's sounds come up on my rotations I can always pick out his very special musical style, be that from the broken beats, or the guitar, or the slightly de-tuned piano keys. Since more than a few years ago, after my dear friend turned me on to this artist, I have listened to all of Jordan's albums (about a dozen full length releases) numerous times. So when a track from his latest Opus At The End Of Everything came on my playlist I remembered that I haven't had the chance to tell you about this album! As with the last three Flashbulb releases, Soundtrack To A Vacant Life (2008), Arboreal (2010), and Love As A Dark Hallway (2011), as well as the two under his real name, Pale Blue Dot (2008) and Louisiana Mourning (2009), this latest record is published on his very own label, Alphabasic.

His production is dream-like and extremely professional, as always. You can expect a lot of variety: piano, synth, drums, strings, and vocals. Each new Flashbulb track is always a surprise--some tracks are driven by a beautiful piano melody infused with synth; some focus on the acoustic guitar. Some tracks have vocals, some don't. Some have live drums, some have programmed drums. I appreciate the variety. The sound and aesthetic are consistent, but always so fresh--perhaps the result of his background in jazz and a willingness to experiment. The melodies are supported by a firm understanding of rhythm and structure. He discovers really wonderful sounding synths (and effects), and blends them beautifully with real instruments.

The result is an 'electronic' album with a scope so big, it transcends the genre.

You can get a physical copy on his label's website, Alphabasic.

I love the flashbulb cds but this one is one of my favorites. It is very relaxing and has a long track list for those who just want good background music.

If you are thinking about getting this, get it now. Unbelievable, really brings you into it. Good thinking music. If Benn Jordan is calling this his best work (opus) then I think he deserves all the credit for that.. If you liked soundtrack to a vacant life, get this! and enjoy.. a friend of mine who says music is just noise picked up my player and put the flashbulb on. that really says something doesn't it? lol. enjoy

I got this more or less on a whim and now Benn Jordan is one of my favorite artists.
