Deep sky Divers are the Scottish duo John Short and David Jones, who have previously released three other albums (“Natural Power”, “Every Generation” and “In the Northern Sky”).
“Momentum” contains a selection of tracks from these ’90 albums plus a couple of unreleased pieces.
The well composed “Raging Calm” (6:39) finally shows what these musicians are capable of: quiet, engaging electronic ambient with slight symphonic hints.
Surprisingly enough, tracks eight and nine slide back to high quality sound painting with lots of emotion: “Deep Sky Meditation” is very well executed and made me think of the album “Below” of the Swiss band Zeus Faber, while the title track offers an great, ultra-low bass sequence to test you hi-fi system.
Summarizing: only five of the thirteen tracks are really worthwhile, which is a poor outcome to justify buying the full album.
