Computerchemist – Signatures Vol 1 & 2 (2013)

CDFRONT

The new double album ‘Signatures 1 & 2, by much talented Dave Pearson (aka Computerchemist) reveals both krautrock, electronics and progressive rock at it’s very finest. Starting with ‘Signatures I’, we will travel into the world of krautrock for sure, especially the first half of the album it’s very evident. It’s like listening to some of the best ‘Tangerine Dream’ music from the early 70’s. It strikes you immediately that the mighty ‘Computerchemist’ has been influenced by this supergroup to a large extent. And while the first half of the album is TD oriented in many ways, the later half is aching much more towards the sounds of ‘Ozric Tentacles’ if you ask me. The cosmic shimmering sounds along with the powerful drumming takes place, it’s almost like listenng to a one-man Ozric army. Dave certainly knows every trick in the book, and with this album he has eclipsed himself once again.Very tasty intricate cosmic rock from start to finish!.

As we move along, we get to his other album called ‘Signatures II’. This album (being my fave of the two) is leaning much more towards electronic rock. But the obvious oozing sounds of Ozric Tentacles cannot be escaped!. Just listen to the amazing piece ‘Floor Zero’ and you’ll be in for a lush treat for sure. The very tasty sounds of the guitars and ethereal synths will leave you quite breathless I’d say. My favorite track on the album without a doubt!.

Pour a bit of ‘Ozric Tentacle’, then add some tasty Pink Floyd sounds mixed with some classic Tangerine Dream textures. Stir well, then add a bucketload of Dave Pearson’s own imaginative style. Shake again and stir it well, and you’ll have the latest Computerchemist masterpiece!.  I would easily and without a doubt recommend this double album to listeners who crave for an infectious and adventurous Berlin-influenced journey, with a dash of prog rock thrown in the mix.
