 Notes & Reviews
 
The elements are all here for the EM aficionado. Sci-fi graphics and titles. Synths galore. Catchy melodies and crisp sequencing. The cool bass sequence on 'Take Off No.3' is effective. The mellow oboe synth lead on 'On The Third Day' fits the mood well. The mellotron flute on the title track is sweet, as are the synth strings. The quixotic bubbly sequence on 'Tri Ode Part 2' hits the nail on the head in sounding like Vangelis, or even Ray Lynch from his Deep Breakfast CD. 'Rule of Threes' is an epic piece full of romance and majesty, with a slow dramatic build up over it's 13-minute course. 'Tritonic Waves' is a feast for the ears of layered electronics. '3rd Life' has a great mix of beats, sequencing, and atmosphere. 'Trilogic Trilogy Part 2' is full of bouncy energy. The disc concludes with soft strings. The disc is filled with varied plot lines and themes, telling a story from beginning to end. On occasion, depending on my mood, it strikes me as having some melodramatic excesses here and there, a little too much flair. But at other times, it is just plain fun to crank up and feel the music. So turn it up and decide for yourself.
