4 stars Welcome to the jungle!

"Bestiary", Robert Rich's 2001 release, is certainly a jungle, an electronic one of course. Experimental without any kind of compromise but his own self-refinement and taste, opposite in that regard to "raw for raw sake" electronic experimentation, this one is carefully threaded .

An assorted trip in every song, it flows freely creating obtuse, obscure, soft and rough, cosmic, unappealing/hypnotic, unearthly/ earthly, uncompromising spaces, full of bubbling as buzzing surprises as showering delights and windy storms. And like a jungle, anything goes, and you have to go through it in able to enjoy.

It is quiet fun to listen to such unambiental "Ambient" music for a change. Those familiar with the Cubase of yore, will certainly re-think its possibilities in the sense of songwriting and sequencing.

Irreverent playfulness, more in tune with Rock in Opposition in a Progressive Electronic environment!

****4 PA stars
