4 stars ELEKTRIKTUS was a one-off solo project founded by an Italian electronic fanatic Andrea CENTAZZO who had tried to drench this creation named "Electronic Mind Waves" in an obscure electro-trippy ocean with slight delightful flavour typically in Italian Rock scene I imagine. Fine, funky, and easygoing texture can be heard in the second tune "Flying A Day- break", flooded with brilliant danceable comfort and fantastic electronic sound gems ... this superb groove can move us naturally. On the contrary, we can enjoy fresh electronic atmosphere all through this album, as if we would run by an open car through a green forest with green air in the first track "Frequencer Departure". Also such a cool mint may be seen in Italian human nature I guess at the same time.

"First Wave", for me one of the most challenging stuffs in this album, might be much influenced by some Krautrock / Electronic hoaxes raging in early 1970s, I feel. Dark ambiance with hypnotic electro-dread can blow us away from the real world gradually. Much appreciated as one of textbooks of Progressive Electronic. While the following "Power Hallucination" might be, as the title says, a musical hallucinogenic agent in the middle of this album, though this track might be one of Andrea's mischiefs possibly. :)

"Second Wave" and "Third Wave" cannot be felt so experimental as "First Wave" above mentioned, but something quirky via electronic effects (in the Second) or comfortable hypnose wave (in the Third) is definitely left here and there, that can amaze us. Through a dark / drone madness "Implosion" or so, we can get to the last scattered electric sounds heretic "Flying A Sunset" and fall asleep upon a quiet bed "Frequencer Arrival" after driving through the electronic forest filled with Italian green.

What do you feel this eccentric gem that has aroused a controversial typhoon in RPI scene? An interesting one, even as a Progressive Electronic stuff and simultaneously as an Italian Progressive Rock one. Enjoy.
