REVIEWS

Lord of Light

The only mistake I made was listening to track 3 
(Lord of Light) in my car on the way home. 
I had listened to track 1 and 2 on the way to work, 
the player in my tiny rattle-trap car turned full-blast.

Track 1, Visions, is a stunning piece that has both
art and precision, like Pachebel, and emotional 
textures that shimmer as the object being examined 
unfolds itself.

Track 2, Siddartha, a piece that is like a journey, 
moves through countryside and urban scapes, 
through light and shadow twining both into a 
silver thread.

By the time I reached work (I drive about 45 minutes 
over rolling grasslands, ranchlands, past mountains 
and outcroppings of the high desert of Southern
Arizona), I was convinced that this was Yorky's finest 
album yet. Musically complex, yet subtle, it represented 
a creative maturity that really was stunning. 

When I left to ride through the red rock panorama 
in the setting sun, track 3 began to play. 
By the time I reached the first summit, the world 
had dissolved, my chakras were opening and I was 
completely swept up. 

At 42 minutes or so, this piece is a haunting 
tour-de-force that totally envelops you. 
The first third of the track (about 12 minutes 
or so) is a rising, undulating and quickening 
of something coming to life. Imagine Wagners 
brilliant but very short musical opening to 
Das Rheingold expanded to nearly 15 minutes 
and you'll have some idea of what this first 
section of the track is like. 

The middle third, like Siddartha, feels like a 
journey, but the emotional texture is very different, 
a journey across time, it unfolds in complicated 
cycles, like a journey through time and evolution. 

The third and final part is like a joy-filled passing, 
into a beyond somewhere. I am not a musician, 
I cannot review music by talking about the technical 
qualities and details that define the music. I can only 
describe in oblique metaphor what the music does 
to me, what it makes me feel, what it causes me to 
think about.

This album is utterly fantastic, exuding a spirit and 
an energy that seems so much more needed these 
days than when it was conceived. 
This unforgetable set of themes left me, honestly, 
speechless at the end of the trip. When I walked into 
the house, still speechless, my wife looked me over 
trying to figure out why I was so quiet. I handed her 
the CD. My wife listens to little ambient or electronica, 
but she fell in love with the CD... and knew why I was 
so quiet. 

This is stunning Electronica, I highly recommend it.
