Format: Audio CD
Their musical career has spanned almost a decade and a half, they've worked with everyone from Alex Paterson of The Orb to Derrick May, but "Encantado" is possibly Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy's strongest System 7 album to date. Steve and Miquette's sound has always been hard to pin down, floating effortmessly between techno, trance, progressive and ambient music, but this album manages to blend those elements to perfection. The result is a collection of nine tracks that will rock any dancefloor and stand up to repeated listens at home. High points - and there are plenty to choose from - include "Bewitched" with it's low-key opening which builds and builds into driving techno beats, the cinematic broken beats, guitar riffs and bubbling ambient sounds of "Octopussy", and the old school vibe of revisited Alex Paterson collaboration "Bassrock". It's the current single that comes out on top though, the majestic "Planet 7". From its ambient opening chords and its effects-laden guitar, to its trancy loops and driving beats, this track contains everything that makes System 7 great.

I agree with the reviewer who wonders why Steve Hillage appeared to all but abandon his lead guitar days. He's still playing it - more than ever on this release - and the "Gong" vibe is still very much in evidence on many tracks, but it's well back in the mix and I just wish he'd allow himself to let rip occasionally, as he's too good a guitarist to pull back so.... This one factor could be the reason people buy this disc (for the dancy techno vibes), or the reason why they abandoned Steve and Miquette in the late seventies after "Live Herald", as some of my mates did back then.

There's certainly more uplifting heart and soul again in System 7's later recordings (Golden Section was the most "cerebral" - a collection of backing tracks in my view). The tracks presented here really do the rough translation "Enchanted" justice.

If you'd like to try "Dance" music with a difference, PLEASE go ahead and buy this CD. There's much good work here and it's SOO much better than the other rubbish played on the radio these days.

RECOMMENDED!

I was quite surprised with this. A pretty up-beat dancy number in all with not really a weak track on it. Not bad for a couple of old hippies (are they entitled to a free bus pass yet) who together make -well pretty good dance! Mind you quite a few tracks are samey and all are virtually the same tempo. I always loved Steve's glissando guitar days and I can't quite figure out how such a remarkable guitarist has put his six string talents so much to one side - but he still plays here and the guitar parts are OK but somewhat masked or hidden or poorly mixed in, a real shame. Not bad but a few yards short of a ley line..

I've listened to this three times now, so here's my initial impressions.

Many of the tracks follow on from the feel of track one of Seventh Wave. Mid tempo, a variety of beats, Steve's guitar somewhere in the mix (sounding as good as ever), with the track not seeming in a hurry to get anywhere, but sounding very pleasant as it moves along. Some of the tracks are even quite bouncy. This construction approach works very well, though one or two tracks could be 2 minutes shorter with no real loss.

My favourite so far is track no 6, which is in the style of the slower and dreamier System 7. If you were to organise a sun worship party then you'd be listening to this.

I like the harder sound of the Golden Section album best. This lacks the urgency of that album, but all the same it's a very pleasant listening experience and definitely System 7.

The mystic vibrations are back with several magical mixes of past with a new dimensional shift. Since Friday I have taken this birth through all phase's of channeling via auto, mobile spinning disc machine, stereo system, computer surround sound system I was gliding from 74 to 2004 which I reconnected with genre styles of theirs of past once again. As always, those two have place 9 tracks that all are blissful to feel and hear. After the last three CD's by them only strongly re-enforces that they are truly number one in producing musik from the heart and soul along whilst not giving up the spice of life past only bringing it forward into a newer upper level of body, mind and spirit experience via their sounds and vibrations. What can I say? I give a strong salute of FIVE STARS. Another CD that will always be near within reach to keep this alpha wave stimulated. Warning, those sample downloads are only just a tease. A truly must have CD! Breathing and Living on Planet 7.Thank you, Steve and Miquette for keeping your genre style a glowing and flowing for us and within us.
I am still spinning Encantado since Friday. Trust me, you will be Enchanted!!
