4.0 out of 5 stars Beats For The Spaces Between The Stars, 22 Mar 2013
The Wolf (uk) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Nebula Dance (Audio CD)
I was more than a little taken with Alan Myson's last project 'Midnight
Colour', (2006). 'Nebula Dance' seems, to my hairy ears, to have had a
bit more moolah thrown at it than his previous work. It sounds brighter,
fuller, rounder, shinier, expansive and more expensive. Mr Myson's ideas
have broadened too; his sonic palette has become richer and his deployment
of rhythm more diverse. His D&B sensibilities are still very much in evidence
but tempered by greater risk taking and variation in the beats department.

There are some truly exciting moments in this collection of twelve new
pieces. 'Gonga', for example, really rattles along at a cracking pace
giving the impression of being sucked through a wormhole at light-speed
into the heart of some spiraling parallel universe; a fasten-your-seatbelt
ride if ever there was one. 'Glokk', too, whips up a sparkling cascade of
juddering synth lines, jangling percussion and half-heard vocal fragments.
Title track 'Nebula Dance' is a Latin-tinged tour de force which got me
thinking about Patrick Moraz's 1976 album 'Story Of I' (do seek it out
if you haven't heard it!) for more than a moment and 'Discontinuum' with
its dense, luminous cloud-like chords fastens its gaze on a vast ocean
horizon before falling away like a dying sun into darkness and oblivion.

Mr Myson's vision becomes ever clearer in this very fine work. Admirable stuff.
