Review by admireArt
2 stars A catalogue of what went around.

I guess this is as close as ULTRAVOX will come to PA.

The infamous 80s. I do not know about you proggers, but electronic music wise, some great things happened (YELLO, Tuxedomoon, etc.). Yeah! I know half the music was polluted with squarish drum box sounds and everybody bought the same fu...g synths!

But back to this Carlos Guirao, 1982 "Revelation" review.

Well he combines laser gun shots, perfected as such, sound wise of course, by Jean Michel Jarre's, 1976, "Oxygene" which he imitates almost to low budget version perfection combined with Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze 70's musical language (oh what a surprise?!). He pulls it through moderately adding some "latin" percussions played by Jose Maria Ciria and Manolo Torres here and there, which turn out to be the only sign of originality in this album.

The 80s, I guess those synths were quiet expensive, Carlos Guirao plays a lot of them, that is clear. Sadly most of those synths were monotonal or pre-set and later in time mass marketed (I own a few and they make the same "electronic sounds", which is a downer!).

Some thrills but few opposite to the more "ready-made" borrowed music composition proposals.

Close to **2.5 PA stars with pity!
