3 stars Future great artist under construction.

Former member of the progressive electronic band Zoviet France, Robin Storey aka RAPOON released in 1994 "Fallen Gods", as far as this PA page goes, his third album.

If you are already aquainted with this musician's works, Fallen Gods continues his explorations between the acoustic & electronic worlds, as his blend of primitive or ethnic music languages recreate in electronic environments ("new musics", goes the tagging).

In these terms, as in general, these "back to the future" experiments have been tried endlessly by as many prog-electro/acoustic composers as one can think of, therefore as always, music composition turns out to be the only real deal in this kind of the then trend-setting styling.

In some kind of way of placing this work for new listeners I will mention its Australian, African and Indo (Raga) flavors in its ethnic environments, accompanied by not exactly Cosmic, better yet, earthly Sacred electronic music ambients.

It is freindly, but not condescending. It should have sounded daring then, nowadays it is not that daring. This does not mean it lacks guts but as time proved with this artist, he in time will develop his unique brand in this kind of musical aesthetics to higher levels.

A good place to start and understand this musician's path. The performance still shows the excitement of "discovering" this mixture between past and future musical languages and music composition wise it goes the same way.

Subtle and discreet, it could fit into any Prog Electronics follower's collection, nevertheless it still shows an artist on the making.

***3.5 PA stars.
