5 stars Cold, but not silent. Far away, but not forgotten. From the first small melody played on electric piano, Sister Moon is darkly captivating.

Moog sequencers like TD collide with deep, angry, almost Industrial sounding bass tones hurtled towards synth string sounds playing something like what you might hear from Dead Can Dance in the mid-1980s.

The shifts in tone, timbre, and pace all very natural while the instrumentation is very far from being organic. Indeed, very far from being easing. There will be no new age ambience here. No, flute sounds here mean business, the kind that you won't forget.

Sirens wail, relentless and solemn. Troops march from the darkness into a calm landscape, but that refuge could only last so long. There is still so much to explore.

Here the whole is certainly greater than any individual part of this 1 hour piece of music.

Derivative? Absolutely, and shamelessly done too. This is space music greatly improved, but owing so much to the musical form invented by the electro-pioneers of the 1970s.

This is progressive; this is a masterpiece. 5 stars.
