The discovery of their sophisticated album “Sleep of the Shadow” made me investigate their previous efforts, “Binaural Beats” being one of them. Don’t expect any cheesy or song-structured music on this album, as the improvised outcome is unconventional in many ways.
Its sonic approach is challenging and adventurous, while spreading a futuristic, almost robotic feel, although all used sounds are warm. Flashes of Krafwterk and Jarre occasionally fly by in this strange, spatial sounding kaleidoscope of electronic music with a taste of experimental.
“Prophecy” and “Horizon” make a more accessible impression, although there’s still a quirky nod in there, which also goes for the more up-beat title track. The vocal-colored “Give it a Try” though gives an unpleasant intermission to all this. From there on, the music becomes more inconsistent and experimental, with even a psychedelic version of a “Rhumba”.
All in all, the 69-minute “Binaural Beats” offers a most peculiar listen, and is only suitable for those who like to try something totally different and unpredictable.
