Rene Splinter – Singularities (2012)
I’ve always been in love with the Tangerine Dream sound Rene Splinter creates with each of his releases. And his latest album ‘Singularities’ is no exception!. The album will indulge you in a serene world of electronic music that WILL leave you breathless for a long time, and make you beg for more of the same. The music that Rene creates is always leaning towards classic 80′s sequencing electronic music. And with this album he certainly have eclipsed himself. Each and every track has that stunning melodic and fresh feel to it, and all of the tracks on this album progresses through in great harmony and with some of the very best sequencing I’ve heard in ages!.
The opening track ‘Singularities’ has to be one of my favorites. It starts out in a moody yet uplifting way, with some soft melodic synth pads, which later builds up in a slow moving way with more sequencing and powerful grooves added to it as the track progresses through. The best part of this track is after the 8 or 9 minute mark, as all of the ingredients are all there and really pushes Rene’s magical touch to the limit!. Superb powerful and moving EM of the highest order is what we have here!. Talk about ear bliss!
Other highly notable tracks are ‘Timescapes’ and ‘The Time Traveller’. These tracks are marvelous melodic pieces from start to finish. Both tracks has that truly awesome and infectious sound of the mid 80′s. Think ‘Tangerine Dream’ and the music from soundtracks such as ‘Firestarter’ and ‘Heartbreakers’ and this is what you will hear!. Personally, I’m a big fan of the ‘Firestarter’ soundtrack, so I was very pleased to hear these tracks, along with ‘The Lighthouse’, which is yet another remarkable piece that will leave you breathless without question.
Now, all this said, I seriously have to admit that ‘Singularities’ is easily one of the best synth albums I’ve ever listened to, with the exception of ‘David Helpling & Jon Jenkins’ album ‘The Crossing’ (2010). Highly recommend album to any fan of quality EM of the highest order!. Epic ear bliss!
