Format: Audio CD
Towers', although hardly a new release (it first saw the light of day
last Summer), seems to have slipped through the cracks in Amazon's ether.
It more than deserves a few words. This is in fact former part-time
Bunnyman Paul Fleming's second album under the Baltic Fleet banner.
The eponymous 2008 album, a collaboration with two other Bunnies, Will
Sargeant and Pete Wilkinson, did not find a firm footing in the listening
world, so I find myself rather glad that Mr Fleming has seen fit to have
another crack of the whip, this time largely on his own steam. 'Towers'
is an instrumental project which wears its debts to our Teutonic cousins'
electro-explorations lightly. Truth-be-told the formula is a simple one.
Strike up a pumping mechano-industrial beat and lay on the synths ten to
the dozen; whistling, bubbling and grinding for all they're worth. Although
there's not a great deal of variation in the ten numbers on offer I found
myself warming to its guileless machinations after two or three encounters.

Of particular interest 'The Wilds' tickled my fancy by virtue of its robotic
rhythm and 'Telstar'-like (that's The Tornados 1962 hit for the uninitiated!)
wasp-in-a-bottle melodic decorations. 'Engage', too, has a certain anachronistic
charm re-calling some of New Order's finer eighties' moments, with its energetic
bass line, jangly guitar and foursquare rhythm. The thrashing beats, stuttering
arpeggios and winsome thematic content of 'Winds Of The 84 Winter', however,
delivers perhaps the album's finest moment. A nicely affecting little anthem.

If you haven't heard already it catch it while you can.

Recommended.

This is a good CD for anyone who likes the sound of synths of the 80s. If you have to sample just one track - the outstanding track "Headless Heroes of the Acropolis" is a good place to start. If you like the music of Xeno and Oaklander another synth band you will enjoy the sound of BALTIC FLEET's "Towers" CD. After listening to Towers i wanted to explore their self titled first album from 2008 which is just as good if not better. Better still buy both albums - Highly Recommended.

I like instrumentals but rarely find an album that keeps me entertained throughout, The Baltic Fleet certainly kept me entertained throughout
