Review by admireArt
4 stars Electronic World Music of an "Alien" nature.

It is so refreshing to find out that there are electronic musicians who for starters do not sound like Tangerine Dream or Klauz Schulze or intend to do so. Really! So refreshing!

UKs Robin Storey a.k.a. RAPOON, Zoviet France co-founder, has a vast solo discography. His PA section, although incredibly well updated and documented, still is missing some of his albums.

Anyway! To put this prog/electronic musician in circulation here in PA (beyond Zoviet France), I have chosen the album I have been listening to more closely and inadvertently (it is number one in my i-pod), "What Do You Suppose? (The Alien Question), 1999.

Well, this album is slow paced and minimalistic (the so loved prog-attributes). Blending "modern" electronic (Cosmic) sounds (no pulses), with native like percussions from time to time in perfect synchronicity and balance. But mainly sharing its space and time, here and there, with a voice (in-off) of a conference about the "famous" Alien Conspiracy Theory (which of course as in their movies, it all happens in the good-ol' USA).

As a listening experience it requires your attention, no catchy riffs or hooks (besides your personal opinion on this theory). It flows freely and naturally, but at a distant volume. I repeat, to enjoy it fully, "headphones" or "focused attention" are required.

In addition, I myself enjoy so much this careleesness and freedom in attitude, in both its songwriting and marketing to become "mainstream".

But the truth is, as always, that this album is not exactly for every prog-audiophile. Therefore I address mainly the "Electronic" follower who are fed-up (as myself), of TD or Schulze imitators, and those probably will have a field trip with it!

****4 "refreshing, minimaltic and deep" PA stars.
