4 stars Gothic, hypnotic, creative prog/electronics.

Its tones are not all black neither white. Its original musical composition is full of proposals. The performance although being electronically generated sounds deeply human in a wide scope of emotions. The record as a whole has a perfect distribution and timing of songs. It does not stick to lenghty drone-like passages, opposite to that, the melodic lines are unique in each (short-timed) song. This adds up for an album that is rich in songwriting and offers diversity of approaches in each composition.

So, the concept itself, more than been mere "musical" , has to do with Tor Lundvall's abilities as a composer. His main attribute for starters is his "uniqueness" in the full of TD's clones, "Prog/Electronic world". Therefore, the music sounds fresh and new. Not only that, listening to this "Empty City" cd, will catch your attention mainly by its straight forward and attractive "sonic environments", which in some cases are completely dynamic. As a result of that, this album is also compelling by its contrasts and perfectly detailed arrangements.

****4 "Prog/Electronic" PA stars.
