4.0 out of 5 stars SON OF FROESE CUTS THE MUSTARD, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Far Side Of The Face (Audio CD)
Jerome Froese's three solo albums - NEPTUNES, SHIVER ME TIMBERS and particularly this latest effort - are quality. Plain and simple.

It would have been so easy to trade on the past and the Tangerine Dream name, but he's not done that. Instead he's forged his own identity with his 'Guitartronica' technique.

The gorgeous sound design and melodies of beautifully understated opener FLIGHT OF FANCY is worth the price tag alone. SCROLL TO POSITION reveals a more rocky sound, infused with clubby beats and intricate sequencers. There's some lovely flourishes from former T-Dreamer Johannes Schmoelling on NOVEMBERNAUTS. And CONTROL YOUR CURIOSITY's abstract female vocals, a combination which so often fails horribly in electronica, works here a treat amongst all the energy and clever drum patterns.

I've barely had this out of the player since it arrived a couple of days ago. Highly recommended, and should garner JF the long overdue credit he deserves.
