Review by admireArt
3 stars How nice that Jack Hertz has been included in the Progressive Electronic archives. He deserves to be in as he presents an alternate yet very true example of this style's evolution. This alone is always welcomed n this P/E world (at least by me).

I had the luck to encounter his work via Bandcamp. They actually set this "Drive" in 2013 in my e-mail's doorsteps. "A suite of tracks composed for listening to while driving and also an ongrowing project". -This is how this project came to be and as Jack Hertz advertises.

"DRIVE" is closer to the U.S.A's West Coast school of electronics than its European counterpart, therefore some of its sounds may remind you of this side of the earth ones yet he has turned these influences to his own course and benefit without no kind of "piracy symptoms" and of course experimentation, as always, is allowed.

This project delivers, most of the times, the kind of music composition which changes or stays in its running time in pursue of its best, or more interesting, melody lines with exceptional creativity and innovation and even if not the best section or track, composition wise speaking, everything is perfect pitch sound engineered.

At some point in the long run the conceptual issue becomes bigger than its musical one ,(i.e. an excess of not that hypnotic nor attractive drum-beats), but ironically, when this happens, it highlights the brighter and more unique parts or tracks of the whole release by contrast and one understands what he is capable of when driven.

So in a few words this release is by no means flawless yet a very good and original ride in the Progressive Electronic highway.

***3.5 PA stars.

P.D.-Jack Hertz's discography is quiet more prolific than as it appears, now, in this PA's archive.
