Glyn-Lloyd Jones – Chaotic Attraction (2011)


A new incredibly infectious album has surfaced by the great ‘Glyn Lloyd-Jones’. And if you, just like me, love the 80’s output from Tangerine Dream, with albums such as ‘Poland’ and ‘Logos’, then you’ll LOVE what this album has to offer you!. It could have been entitled ‘Poland’ Pt.2 for all I know!.

As for the music. All four tracks are filled with late 70’s to mid 80’s synth bliss material from the moment you press play. The brilliant long piece ‘Reflections of Perpetual Abstraction’ is proof of that. The structure of that track is outstanding and gives me chills down my spine each time I listen to it. No, it’s not that scary, just THAT good!. But most notable is the last track that really turns my ears on called ‘The Dimensions of an Impossible Perspective’. That perfect 80’s sequencing sound is there with infectious rhythms building up the track in all it’s supreme glory. I would say it reminds me alot of the album ‘Alterstill’ by ‘Arcane’ (Paul Lawler), yet Glyn’s unmistakeable sound is always present, keeping the rich atmosphere exiting.

This album will, without a doubt, appeal to fans of the great mid 80’s sequencer driven EM style. Also highly recommended if you loved albums such as ‘Poland’ by Tangerine Dream (which I know you did!). Buy it, you won’t regret it, but you will regret that you didn’t if you don’t!.
