Spirals in Hyperspace,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Spirals in Hyperspace (Audio CD)
Last 3 cuts - I hear John Goodsall/Brand X, Mahavishnu, Gong's best instrumental sections, David Torn's "Tripping Over God", a more interesting Jan Hammer that doesn't revolve around such a shallow axis, a bit of Soft Machine Vol. 2's tightness and some interesting Ethno influence. These 3 cuts are so good that they make my eyes water and this is the best music I've heard since buying System 7's Water CD late last year ( I'm a bit late to the party). Parts of this CD are a cosmic "dance of Shiva" (Hindu) and are beyond words and I think that perhaps this group could fill the void that John Goodsall's absence has left in me.
I ordered the new Ozric after receiving this one last week; but, I'll take these one at a time because of the letdown of buying a bunch of System 7's after the Water CD.
To date, I have not heard a better utilization of synths, software, and programming with other instruments that lends itself so well to the bizarre and beautiful in such an interesting manner; the mastery of which, is pure genious. It's nice to know that with cut 7, Akasha, Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy can still come up with outstanding input beyond the commercial realm. You can't put a price on this CD. Buy it.
