Sometimes in life you find yourselves at a point where you need to walk away and leave something behind if you ever want to go back to it. Other paths must be walked, other experiences learnt from to give you a fresh view of where youve come from. In that sense going back to the roots, rediscovering their past with fresh eyes, is the concept behind Richard Dorfmeister & Rupert Hubers new Tosca album, Going Going Going. For over two decades and several albums Tosca has served as a vehicle for Richard and Rupert to express their personal moods and impressions, each release holding up a mirror to their inner lives. Now though after ten albums the journey has come full circle and once again theyve returned to the kind of instrumental tracks, full of deep beats and dubbed out textures that made Toscas name. The result is Going Going Going, an album that Tosca fans will immediately recognize and yet one that doesnt just trade on former glories. Hitting the ground running opening track Import Export sounds like a Lee Scratch Perry version of a Ennio Morricone soundtrack, a motif reoccurs throughout the album, most notably on Dr Dings, their reinterpretation of Americas classic Horse With No Name.

I've been a fan of Tosca's work for years. This new release is a continuation of the great music heard in their previous releases!

An adventurous recording which covers the full range from instruments to sounds. What is enjoyable is that it can shift from ambient to chilled lounge in a beat. Some very intriguing sounds which engross the listener. Very much capable of being mood music or music for your mood.
• Clarity – Crisp clear and well defined.
• Channel separation - Good
• Channel balance – Good, used creatively to build the sound stage and atmosphere.
• Sound Stage – Large and well rounded, multilayered but does not loose detail or get swamped.
• Distortion – None Audible.
• Compression – None Audible.
• Atmosphere – Deep and relaxed capable of delivering as much or little as the listener needs. Sit up and be engrossed or lay back and chill out.
• Bass – low frequencies – Good. Drums have a nice “thump” and feel. No sense of artificiality. Capable of driving a nice pulsing beat.
• Treble – high frequencies – Very full range and dynamic. Compliments the bass and vocals beautifully.
• Vocals – Clear and well defined.
As a general rule of thumb recordings from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s are nearly always better on the original vinyl. Remasters often fail to please as it’s just not possible to make a silk purse from a sows ear, i.e. the original recording lacks the necessary detail to be processed digitally and show an audible improvement. Indeed such processing can make the sound worse.
Modern recordings which have been processed digitally from start to finish can be as good as vinyl. CD’s are often unfairly criticised for being poor quality. This is not the case, it is the original recording or the process which is to blame. Modern “remasters” can both enhance and degrade a recording. The statement GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out) is the limiting factor. Ignore this at your cost.
