The first impression of the music on “Unexplored Secrets of REM Sleep” is one that connects progressive electronics with the TD sound of the ‘80’s, but this vision for sure is ruined by the chaotic opening piece, loaded with lots of freaky and loud solo voices, all leading nowhere.
In my view, this rather profound restless and unstructured feel applies to the whole album: along the way it connects with a psychedelic one, as various structures, sequences and rhythms show up or kick in in the most unusual and frantic ways on the other four lengthy tracks. The solos don’t make sense either and the sequencer patterns are deranged and pulled apart on various occasions.
Listening to the outcome is a most tiring and annoying experience. “Unexplored Secrets of REM Sleep” makes 73-minuts of totally weird sonic chemistry.
