Ormion Posted July 23, 2009 Share Posted July 23, 2009 1 - Downturn 2 - Are We Done Yet? 3 - Robot Poetry 4 - Jingle Bells 5 - Pumpkin 6 - Feeling Faster 7 - We're From The Future 8 - Wonderful Feeling 9 - Ibiza Calling (Azorsky Remix) I'm gonna be honest, that's the only Penta album I own. I'm gonna be even more honest, I've never really liked Penta that much. Yeah, I've listened to many compilations tracks and I really liked them all, but none of them got me really excited. After that useless infos let's go to the review. You want the short version? Here it is. You know when someone bitches that darkpsy is basically random sounds over a bassline? Well in this case that's true! I'm not gonna write a track by track description, because all of them fall under that same rule. We get bass, kick, hats etc. and on top of that just random sounds flying left and right. Sometimes there are some nice melodies that after a few seconds dissapear back to the void. I know what you're thinking. This isn't the first time a darkpsy album uses random noises. Midnight's Shared Blossom has many tracks with hundreds of effects come and go, Psykovsky's Da Budet too and more. Well it's not the same. Those albums/compilations create a certain mood and atmosphere and what appears as a random-sounds-onslaught is a perfect creation of chaos (that doesn't make musch sense, does it?) This is not the case with this album. Everything in here sounds so unrelated, so random, without any purspose. The only tracks which seem like complete tracks are We're From The Future and the last one which is a psychedelic version of an electro track, not my style. Ok now time for the good stuff. The production is beyond belief! Crystal clear all the way. The several effects are amazingly well done, from weird robot bleeps to lazers, everything is here and it sounds perfect. The more spacey approach. It would really work in an open air festival. The basslines are really moving, although it needs some key changes. See? It's not all bad. Yet it's not a very good album. Production-wise is top notch, musically is mediocre.
