Editorial Reviews

This classic album is now remastered, repackaged and re-released. Recorded on a 1995 tour of Europe, it has captured a lot of attention since its release in 1996. At the start, it's just a simple bass figure: two notes repeated slowly. But over the next hour, the mood builds and surges, moving through multiple permutations in the hands of three master instrumentalists. Jonas Hellborg's bass notes are clear, articulate and distinctively original. Guitarist Shawn Lane moves easily from sensitive chording to melodic lines expressed in a vibrant, singing tone. Jeff Sipe's drumming is melodic, his use of dynamics is intelligent and unexpected.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is no other album quite like this one. March 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well actually, it IS like ONE other album - this is the remastered Bardo Records version of the original 1996 Day Eight Records cd with Mao Tse-tung's picture hanging behind the three group members. Anyway, here you have three virtuosos so confident in their ability and vision that they have the canasters to put out a cd with just two long (32-minutes and 27-minutes) improvised jams done in a live setting. And it all works beautifully. The album art is stark, the booklet notes are practically nonexistent, yet the title is this precocious and cerebral "Temporal Analogues of Paradise" which focuses the listener's attention on the MUSIC, and nothing else. For good reason. Drummer Jeff Sipe (aka Apt. Q-258) has an eclectic background, with influences from Carl Palmer to the great jazz masters, and he's magnificent in this type of setting. Bass player Jonas Hellborg (arguably the most famous of the trio) has a great arsenal of styles and sounds, venturing from soft melodic to bop to growling fury - he's quite a talent. Together, they form a solid and knowing rhythm section that's not shy about taking their turns in the soloing spotlight. After those two, one might be tempted to slight Shawn Lane as just "icing on the cake". But the former Black Oak Arkansas guitar wunderkind from Memphis takes what is already GREAT to...well, EXCEPTIONAL. I'd love to have a video of him playing, as he tended to sound like two (or even three!) guitarists at once in places. He could fly as fast as a neo-classical metal shredder, or alternately add beautiful background colors to the other soloists. For many of us, it was the unique sound and talent of the late Shawn Lane that originally drew us to this cd. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply organic masterpiece January 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Hellborg needs no introduction. This is the man that actually plays Herbie Hancock solos(!) on the bass. But one can say that it is not his perfect techique that makes the point, merely it is his total control of the sound. That's his conception of virtuosity. On the other hand there's Shawn Lane. Unpredictable as usual, the fact that impresses me more is his dedication to the group. Yes, he really plays for the whole. The two tracks are harmonically very simple built upon 4th intervals. A magical gift for all the music lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant interplay and soaring solos July 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
As a performing improvising musician, I can tell you that the thing that drives me (and most other improvising musicians) is the magic that happens when everything comes together, when the music is taken out of your hands and you are simply the vehicle for some higher, faster, purer purpose. The communication between musicians becomes more than communication: it becomes one mind with many hands. The notes become inevitable; you can't play a wrong note or make a misstep, and things happen so fast it seems instantaneous. It's as though the entire room and all its occupants lift off the ground. Those nights happen rarely, but the ecstasy is so potent that you do anything to chase it, willing to sacrifice everything just to experience it again for a few seconds. This CD captures one of those nights when the magic went on for an hour, played by three of the most capable musicians around.

The interplay is extraordinary, and the solos simply fly. Shawn Lane is on fire here, speaking in tongues, building and building to a climax and then releasing into a blissful meditation. Jonas Hellborg's solos are both powerful and lyrical, without mimicking Jaco Pastorious, as most bass players do these days when they try to play lyrically. And Jeff Sipe does his best playing on any recording here. His solo is a masterpiece of technique, tone, dynamics, musicality, and structure (also perhaps the best recording of drums every captured). And he does it without resorting to pyrotechnics, bombast, or flash. It should be required listening for every drummer.

This is a must have for any Shawn Lane fan. The personnel are Jonas Hellborg, Jeff Sipe and Shawn Lane. This is a live performance consisting of two 30 minute improv pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fusion record July 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I bought 'Icon' several months ago and i have mixed feeling about it, Shawn Lane doesn't play enough on this album and i'm a little bored by the indian voices, the vocals take an important place on 'Icon' and i personally prefer to listen to the playing of the trio than some vocals - but i guess it is a matter of taste; on this album however, Shawn Lane plays an extraordinary (but very sad) guitar solo on 'Mirror'; that being said, i prefer to listen to by far 'Temporal Analogue of Paradise', the music is more joyous (there is a sad feeling going on throughout 'Icon'), the melodies are complex and hence, support repeated listenings where you always discover new interesting musical ideas; the album introduction also benefits from one of the most galvanizing guitar solo i have ever heard from a fusion record, turning thereafter into sweet melodic lines; the rhythm section is solid and the two tracks swings between experimental abstraction and melodic themes.
