Review by admireArt
4 stars Steve Roach's first catalogue of possible electronic routes.

Steve Roach's 1982 release, "NOW", encompasses a wide variety of "electronic" stylings. Never falling for the 80's synth-vogue and clearly stepping away, also, from TD's "spacy" sounds, but still close to those Berlin School's electronic music asthetiques.

One can easily detect the more comfortable and close to his pioneering then, "Ambient" music passion and nature. Those are the songs that foretell where he will eventually be heading, but in this, his first release, it is all still cooking and it smells good!

5 pieces, 5 different possible progressive/electronic environments. The "cosmic" sequenced one, the out of this world "tribal" song, the dynamic minimalistic one, the all "ambient" and the TD like song, not in that order, I am just recapitulating.

Of all the possible music routes Steve Roach will eventually lead, his clear thought and bright music songwriting "muse", apparently was there from the start.

****4 "Promising since day one!" PA stars.
