Customer Review

on 22 July 2009
Electronica and space are made for each other, and Murcof gives full vent to all the array of sound that a synth, or synths and samples can muster.... Cosmos 1 and 2 are the best of his efforts here. Both tracks build to booming, awe inspiring climaxes.

But don't be fooled into thinking this kind of treatment is unique, because there are plenty of other cosmic synth epics out there.. check out Jonn Serrie's "planetary chronicles" for example, used in various Nasa films, and if you want to dip into the world of New Agey synths at their best, grab some MIchael Hammer.

Having said all that, Murcof judges it (mostly) appropriately... a whiff of an arpeggio here, a sub sonic drone here. But melody is subdued and ultimately a lot of this is simply one long-drawn out legato note, coloured and textured which can get simply a bit ... unadventurous. Odd, too, that such a topic and such music should nevertheless feel in some curious way slightly hollow, missing a transcendent spirituality and opting instead for awe, coldness, distance. Very 2001-like, it must be said.

Good, maybe. Genius? No way.
