Customer Review

on September 30, 2006
"Ancient Dreams," released in 1985, is the first "dark" New Age album I ever acquired, and it's still one of my favorites--juicy, complex and predominantly electronic. While filled with percussive textures, this is not mindlessly beat-driven club music; it's a fascinating, ever-changing and very intelligently crafted journey through mood and sound. One of the things I love about it is how seamlessly and elegantly Patrick O'Hearn manages to combine apparent opposites--heat and chill, denseness and light, drama and funk. It's truly a unique and deliciously striking brew of musical nuances--simultaneously relaxing and stimulating. In the liner notes, commentator Freff writes "Music wears a thousand masks, and exists for a million reasons. It reaches our heads, hearts, and our bodies. It can be gentle, pleading, angry, demanding, healing: as fierce as fire and as cold and dangerous as thin ice. It is so many things because we are so many things, inside. The most special music reflects our private selves." This is a perfect description of Patrick O'Hearn's keyboard and synth-driven compositions. For more electronic explorations of the dark and mysterious, try also the work of Tangerine Dream, Enigma and Amethystium.
