10 words or less: Spacey, electronic soundtrack to the
documentary Aliens of the Sea


Elaboration: Though I have yet to see the documentary
of which this is the soundtrack, I am easily
transported via the music to an imaginary, underwater 
paradise. This album actually sounds like underwater
music. Fans of Vangelis will appreciate this album.
Each piece is slow and introspective but not
completely devoid of punch. Percussion is handled by
ProgRocker Nick Magnus of Steve Hackett fame who also
produced the album. The good news is there is a slight
hint of Wish You Were Here era Floyd that I
hear in some of these instrumental tracks. The bad
news is track 5 is slightly reminiscent of Vangelisí
Chariots of Fire making it the first dash of
New Aged cheese on the album. These are the sounds
that the album vacillates between from start to
finish. A nice listen but nothing to write home about.
