John Lyell – Eternity
CD/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Private Release, 2012

Six years after his first solo album “Dimensions”, Minneapolis-based -synthesist John Lyell (also known from two collaborative albums with Brent A. Reiland) brings us his long-awaited second album “Eternity”, mastered by Robert Rich.

The new album, best listened to with some good headphones, proves John has made another step forward. The well-crafted and warm ambient/space music easily immerses the listener in a fascinating sonic world of highly atmospheric textural landscapes, smooth pulse structures and gently drifting soundscape pads next to a few melodic hints.
Besides some occasional minimal flavours, the 63-minute “Eternity” creates an overall dreamy, quiet and unhurried sonic canvas that aptly ties the core of the cosmic deep space experience together. Sometimes, things are set in gentle slow motion, such as on the impeccable and soothing “Star Seeker” or “Pulse of Destiny”.

All in all, “Eternity” offers some fine company for imaginary space cruising and goes very well with Mr Lyell’s great cosmic art available through his website.
Well done, John!
