The music by Transceive, aka Steve Nelson, is typical English melodic power-EM, so expect lots of pumping sequencing and fierce, rattling rhythms. “Transformation 88:98” is what Steve calls a kind of best-of album, containing music he compiled after the release of “Intrigue”.
All tracks, except one, were composed between 1988 and 1998, beautifully kicked off by the strong 10-minute track “Landscape of Tomorrow”. Tracks 2-4 continue in almost the same powerful manner, before things slow down a bit with the more quiet, but also rather uninspired “Creature of Legend” and “The Rebus Tapes”.
For those who love the early up-tempo works of Mark Shreeve and Michael Shipway, make sure to check-out the soundbites of this and his other cd “Intrigue”.
