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 three 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 quick
ening 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.
