3 stars Dave Pearson a.k.a. COMPUTERCHEMIST's, first registered work here in PA, has to be listened closely, in order to appreciate what it has to offer to this, Progressive Electronic, sub-genre.

It takes no genius to figure out, this musician has some kind of "classical" music training. That is something easily detected in his sequencer scales and compositional structures. Now don't get me wrong, this is still "Electronic" music. Also it turns quiet impossible not to associate SOME of his musical "cadences", to the "empires" of the T Dream's kingdom.

But again if you listen closely, as told, it will be evident, that Dave Pearson's songwriting, has a place of its own, far beyond's TD's domain. In fact the music is well balanced, it never abuses, none of its tools, let them be drum boxes, sequencer riffs or synth atmospherics, all due to a very "tasty" songwriting. And to be honest his sequencer passages, are far more interesting, than TD's 80's ones.

To round things up, these "Atmospherics" are not ambiental. They are just "electronic instrumented" vocal less songs. It is enjoyable, well produced and composed. It lacks an all personal musical language, but enough to be considered and listened to.

***3 "Good, as a promising first release" PA stars.
