This review is from: Fantasma (Audio CD)
This album fits comfortably into a category, and the category is Cornelius. It ranges from a number of minimalist tracks which focus on small, but intersting ideas to ones where sounds appear to have been scattered to see if they would land in a pattern. I'm still not sure they have, but it's fun deciding. The musical style varies from traditional rock material to Japanese pop to dance forms I try not to categorise to what sounds like 1960s backing music; and it often changes within the tracks. Hey, at least the Planet Of The Apes sample on 'Monkey' (a.k.a. 'Magoo Opening')is easy to explain. 'Free Fall' is perhaps the most accessible track, a spaced-up rock number that rates in any language. My version of the CD has a typewriter lesson on it as well, but you may escape this. Open your mind before you open the CD case.
