4 stars "Not a reissue, not a compilation, but something completely new". "To West and Blue", 2013. -:RAPOON's Bandcamp page.

I would not complain or ask why it is in the EPs/BOXSets category, the Gods know why. Robin Storey a.k.a RAPOON, thinks otherwise.

Anyway, "To West and Blue" in his own words, is a recreation of his childhood's land by the sea in the U.K. This musical recreation, because of the same, moves toward the "ambiental/electronics" which deal directly with the memory of things and images gone, lost or found again.

His usual experimental tone encompasses the 7 unconnected songs. Each song has its own personality, travelling between dream-like, "cosmic", choral and tribal electronics, portraying a different environment or memory or place.

The work as a whole is haunting, creative and rich in its minimalism, but not condescending to be liked or go "mainstream", yet despite been quiet personal, it is entirely UNIVERSAL.

Opposite to what Bandcamp's page depicts, "as not for everyone's taste", I think otherwise. This work will easily fulfill any PROG/Electronic follower's expectations.

****4 "daring, unique, subtle and creative" PA stars.

Enjoy today, tomorrow never knows!
