The Sound Of Arrows Voyage
Top Customer Reviews
`Into The Clouds' builds up a sense of anticipation so that when the shimmering production kicks in it feels like a burst of sunshine. It's the perfect way to open the album as it sets the tone of widescreen production and of emotions taking flight.
`Wonders' is stunning, with synth sounds that send a shiver down the spine. It's dance music with purpose and grace.
`My Shadow' is mid-tempo and sounds instantly familiar. Warm synths sit alongside a wistful Italo-disco melody whilst lyrically it's bittersweet (particularly when the explanation for the song title is revealed at the 2:35 mark).
A remixed version of the bouncy single `Magic' is charming. Featuring a children's choir that manages to be moving rather than mawkish, this track looks back to a lost childhood (or the childhood we wished we'd had).
Things slow down for `Ruins Of Rome', which again features the children's choir to great effect. The retro-futurist electronica feels especially haunting for anyone old enough to recall the mid-80s.
`Longest Ever Dream' is the standout track of this amazing album - pulsating, melancholy and beautiful. Lyrically, it's got that late-ABBA (`Visitors' era) ambivalence where the past is suddenly being viewed from a new perspective. Musically, it has a strong Giorgio Moroder feel.
`Hurting All The Way' is a lovely, autotuned ballad. `Conquest' is pleasant but the least interesting thing here. `Nova' is the last `pop/dance' track & again pushes all the right happy/sad emotional buttons.Read more ›
Words cannot be enough to describe how euphoric this album is. It feel like hearing music for the first time. It feels like finishing school on the last day of the school year. It feels like the best night of your life dancing with every one of your friends you have ever known. It feels like the colours you see when you close your eyes.
In the days of CD’s containing sometimes over fifteen tracks and with so much filler and pointless dreary remixes, it’s refreshing to have a modest eleven songs with absolutely no filler or endless different versions. This method has the right effect of leaving you wanting more, rather than having to switch it off after ten tracks before it gets tedious. In the case of Voyage, you get two discs, the second being an entirely instrumental mix of the album. Again, not many albums can pull this off, but here it’s great. Voyage works well as an instrumental record, so strong are the melodies and with many of the songs nicely segued with some interesting interludes, this clever treatment creates a more “whole” and “complete” feel to it.Read more ›

Imagine cartoon theme tunes, movie soundtracks and computer games all squished into one. A smogasboard of retro-esque electronica - pure aural pleasure!Published on 26 Dec. 2012 by BMC

I have a fairly eclectic taste but I can't like this stuff. Very 80's clubland pop. I bought this on a recommendation in the Big Issue, I reckon the reviewer is a mate because... Read morePublished on 1 Jan. 2012 by A. Barrett
