3 stars Artificial joy was taylor's Universe second album from 2009 and is another worthy album from his catalogue. Keeping almost same attitude like on Soundwall, but with some diffrent line up. Denner remaining to make aswell some excellent guitar parts on this album, but having a second guitarist from famosus danish prog band from the '70 Ache - Finn Olafsson and aswell aanother keybordist besides Robin. This album starts very well with Artificial Joy, very strong tune, maybe the best from here together with Atmosfear and a very intresting one Telephone. Solid musicianship again, intresting ideas overall, but it seams to me that in some parts he repet himself , I mean Robin, because he compose all the music, nothing is bad here but to same arrangements. Anyway, I like what I've heared here, the guitars, horns,keyboards and the voice of Louise Nipper on Laugheter, but it doesn't reach the beauty of Soundwall who really was a wall of sound of the highest calibre. I like aswell the cover art. 3 rounded to 3.5 in some places.
