3 stars Another very good work by Gregory T. Kyryluk a.k.a ALPHA WAVE MOVEMENT.

"System A", a 6 track, 2015 release, captures both the spirit of old times Cosmic electronics ,(and also early Minimalist composers ), and the new tendencies that the same "old" school(s) provoked eventually.

Slow/Mid paced, unearthly electronic journeys represented in each independent track, in this "system" Gregory T. Kyryluk finds his way through all kind of personal musical influences and on the long run, his personal imprint is what becomes relevant and by far more attractive and unique, in regard to music composition and arrangements.

In this release you will find a very "visual" compendium of the extensive possibilities of mostly drum-less, contemporary "COSMIC" electronics. Maybe not everything is that original, but music composition wise Gregory T. Kyryluk has an impressive skill to build very catchy riffs, that at the end of the day, make this release so attractive.

It will be unfair not to mention the high proportion of "masterpiece" moments or tracks (1, 4 & 6), which over compensate for those other, not that highly inspired, sections. But as written somewhere "Best is enemy of the good" and Gregory T. Kyryluk knows these leagues.

Rating it, as always, is more complex. But that is part of the game!

***3.5 PA stars (for the general Prog universe). For AWM followers a very good addition to their collection.
