4 stars The voice electric.

Rapoon's 2012 "Stray" focuses on the possiblities of the human voice (electronically processed, of course) to supply all kind of different "environments" which usually they do not cover, besides choral arrangements, like instruments more than "singing" voices alone.

The recorded results do not rely solely on this, which makes the whole experience, twice delightful. "Stray" is masterfully written, composition wise and so are its arrangements, which although "minimal" efficiently create all kind of "human/non-human" landscapes.

This album is close to the "ambiental" tagging but not subdued by it. It can turn out to be quiet disturbing also. The solitude and "alien" nature it depicts, is so disturbing because it hits close to any human being's fears and expectations but mainly because they end up sounding so deeply human, thus their transparent beauty.

Between earthly landcapes and the dirty industrial factories, there we are, us the top of the food chain, corrupting our planet, and yet we are just crumbs on the cosmic table!

****4 "Slow-paced and dynamic, deep/progressive electronics" PA stars.

PD. By the way, this is not an EP/SINGLE/BOXSET/PROMO/"Payola" or whatever, just a "normal" CD.
