“Gemstones” is Deep Imagination’s second release, a project by Thorsten Sudler-Mainz and friends.
The album starts out with “Planetary System”, followed by four live tracks. They all start out rather nice in a cosmic atmosphere, but after that there’s not much going on, as I couldn’t detect any real develop in the music.
At the start, “Colourscape” seems to venture out in a more dynamic manner, but also soon ends up in the same monotone, uninspired sounding noodlings. And there’s the sax in the fifth track music, which doesn’t bring much depth or atmosphere either.
To my ears, this is superficial and introductory-kindred music which isn’t followed by anything interesting or consistent.
As a bonus, the release contains a dvd-r (which is also available as single copy), containing a video clip to the first track plus a 13 minute film of a live-concert at Satzvey Castle 2005.
