5 stars Dream like Cosmic electronics, from a rarely pure prog electronic mastermind.

Electric guitar in hand, Aidan Baker released "Ecliptic Plane" in 2015. For ground breaking news as such, as told, this one can undoubtly be pinned down to its common address, yet Post/Math Rock, a newer genre, could well be mentioned. Main reason to do so, is that the electric guitar alongside flowing synths compositional structures are raw and sophisticated simultaneously as some Post/Math structures.

Anyway in this (un)controllable taggings, Aidan Baker's style has always stepped indifferently wherever his creativity leads on and the real deal about Ecliptic Planes goes beyond all this info.

Hypnotic, uninterrupted, strangely beautiful, addictive musical structures display shamelessly the altitudes Baker's self made musical idiom has reached and holds no quarter in doing so.

Rating this work on a purely Prog Electronic basis feels uncommonly satisfying and defying. Needless to say the droning/shoegazing electric guitar based compositions are mostly its main feature, which is quiet welcomed in a world where synths abound. And it is not only that all music structures found in each mili-second of this obscure masterpiece are totally inspired and perfectly threaded, but above all its inherent addictive nature certainly sets it above the highly respectable 4 stars rating alone.

***** 5 "small wonder" PA stars.
