Prog Reviewer
4 stars A second, early 2016, collaboration between Steve Roach and Robert Logan "Second Nature" leans toward the slow paced, dreamy and sheltering atmospheres whose ethereal flowing melodic lines float into transparent or darker shapes, anchored by a distant, "treated" acoustic piano which also counterpoints the balance between obscure abstractions and the beauty of its own clear light findings.

The whole body of this work (4 compositions) evokes an uneasy peacefulness which can be dream like but subtly charged with a dramatic cacophonic edge, that gives depth to the "cosmic" electronic environments it develops, therefore its musical language is rich in contrasts and moods and not quiet fit for easy listening ears. Opposite to that it will easily find its way in more classical contemporary electronic and contemporary classical trained hearts and , of course, in Steve Roach's fortunate followers' collections.

****4 PA stars
