3 stars Ian Boddy's "As Above So Below"(2016), witholds a true to life symphonic like nature, blended with quiet well balanced Berlin/Bay area school's electronics. An otherwise unexpected route even in his own discography and a great challenge considering the field he has decided on playing on yet focused on his own electronic musical language.

Probably one of his few highly friendly works up to date. This of course does not mean one for the masses, but a very good treat for those late bloomer Berlin/Bay area and progressive electronics enthusiasts who are used to the sound of electronic and acoustic instruments sharing the same space.

A quiet passionate, romantic and dramatic/nostalgic air surrounds the atmospheres along the way his usual Berlin/Bay area school's oriented compositions.

Now as for the always abstract task of rating, I myself found some close encounters with some foreign sounds, yet not to the point of falling into the trap of piracy.

The kind of album which deserves the attention of young prog-electronic or to be followers (for them 4 stars), unfortunately I am way off that crowd.

***3.5 PA stars.
