4.0 out of 5 stars A Futuristic Voyage, April 16, 2004
This review is from: Blue Wonder Power Milk (Audio CD)
I bought this album based on some back-of-the-head idea that it got good reviews, and it just blew me away.
Hooverphonic uses just enough synth and computerized sounds to give this album a sleek, refined sound that transcends most modern music, but the listener never feels lost.
"Battersea" explodes with such a rush of energy, it feels like being lifted off the ground and set into flight. The first track also introduces you to Geike's sweet voice, with an intangible quality that leaves me curious and listening to this album more and more. Following tracks like "One Way Ride" and "Club Montepulciano" flow effortlessly and beautifully.
Two more popular songs are "Eden", with its relaxed almost chill-out vibe, and "Magenta", a creative masterpiece. Note how the backup vocals on the chorus jump to the left speaker for "Look left" and right speaker for "Look right" - a nice little detail.
My two favorites on this disc are "Electro Shock Faders" - short, sweet, and an incredible outro that again is reminiscent of flying - and "Lung". The intro notes sound as though they'll never fit in, but halfway through the song you remember that they're still playing, and are amazed at how smooth the transition was.
I believe BWPM is the band's best work, and recommend it to any avid music fan with a little bit of a taste for adventure.
