4 stars An original blend between "New Age" , "Cosmic ", and "Ambient" music.

ALPHA WAVE MOVEMENT, was recently inducted in PA's highly loved Progressive Electronic sub-genre. So, in order for this privilege to be noted, before it falls into oblivion in most prog-head's forgetful minds, I aquired his 2014 "Eolian Reflections", knowing absolutely nothing beforehand about this artist, so here it goes!

SLOW PACED, so almost all prog-heads will skip into the next review. Steve Roach's influence could turn out to be the best example of the tenor of this work. Therefore the other half of the average prog-heads, can do as above.

Now that we are alone, let me kind of explain, why this work deserves 4 PA stars.

It has a very personal feeling, all way through. Its electronics are highly refined yet true to "Cosmic" or Berlin's school canons and all of these electronics are part of a bigger picture like the before-mentioned S. Roach's environmental works. Its New Age "sacredness" does reach high altitudes the same as the very "earthly" (again a la Roach) firm and refined "primitiveness", combined with simplicity and with hypnotic-attractive songwriting, but never ceasing to turn to different musical ideas and directions, which actually sets it apart of Steve Roach's compositional style and offers in return a new focus or picture of its own "New Age" , "Cosmic ", and "Ambient" music roots.

No dark or eerie places found here, so to whoever ends up reading this review, I can bet you would not be disappointed to add this work to your "friendly" PE music collection.

****4 PA stars.
