Prog Reviewer
3 stars On the bright side Oophoi's deep and wide atmospheres are present and reloaded. On the not so bright side his usual magnetic melody lines are simplified to become unilineal and macro-minimal.

This "Forgotten Rituals" (with Faryus), 2007 release, rarely moves outside or beyond itself. It does fill the sonic environment to the top and has its bright lights, yet on the long run it is quiet monotonous. Not the best place to start or get acquainted with this musician's works.

As far as rating it, as I do with Oophoi's releases, I rate it according to his own releases, if otherwise and in comparison to most Electronic Proggers, this guy's musical language is free of foreign influences or "borrowed" ones, therefore incomparable and unique.

The mere fact of owning a unique idiom gives any musician or band, in my book, a non less than 3 stars rating, sadly this release just stays there flat.

***3 PA stars.
