Mark Dwane – The Singularity (2011)

The new installment ‘The Singularity’ expands alot on many of MD’s previous albums, but this time, perhaps in a more romantic & ambient/ethereal way if you ask me. The songs on ‘The Singularity’ are of the finest calibre available when it comes down to MIDI guitar soundscapes. There are so many precious and lush moments to find on this release, making it very hard to pick out any particular favorites. But my personal fave has to be ‘Event Horizon’. It’s on of those tracks that will stick in your head for a long time, and certainly even more so if you’re familiar with MD’s style from his earlier albums, ‘The Myth’ from 1985 immediately comes to mind.

The album offers the listener a MIDI-guitar tour-de-force from start to finish, and the production and sound is better than ever. All this said, ‘The Singularity’ will appeal to both new and old Mark Dwane fans as this album has both something new and something old in the mix. It’s a highly versatile and atmospheric album and also probably one of his best albums to date, ‘Planetary Mysteries’ being his second best album according to me. Without a doubt a must-have in any New Age/Ambient collection!. Highly recommended! Buy…buy…buy!
