This one I bought by impulse, giving some credit to the reviews I read. It was said that Greg Hunter, the man beyond this production, took four years finding inspiration and mixing oriental music with his own electronic sounds to finish this album. I listened this cd 1...2...3...10...20 times, trying to hear something that made me enjoy the music, but nothing raise my attention...
Each time I heard it the more difficult was to bear what I was listen and all I want was that it finishes quickly. In terms of composition, there is really nothing new in this work. The production lacks progressiveness and talent. The harmony, of so little catchy, becomes boring. A cd with music that finds support on annoying vocalization, regular traditional instrument's solos and boring emphasizing beats, all echoing along with some insipient electronics in an often irritating cadence.
This is not the combination of electronic and oriental music that is pleasant to my ears and I was really pissed of that I bought this. No wonder that we never heard about Alien Soap Opera no more! Positive points of this cd are, the name of the project, the cover design and the total time (43').
