Some of the songs are more rock oriented, while still maintaining the dependency on sequenced synth lines, but once all the elements fall into place, you can't escape the magic of Zombi's rhythm.
And that's what makes this album so fantastic; the driving rhythms keep you engaged, while also allowing you to drift into another place. Their first album "Cosmos" lacked these driving rhythms, and it suffers to some extent because of it. Each song on this album offers up a treat: -Challenger Deep is relentless and perhaps the most Goblin sounding song on the album. The Freeway - Zombi Squad - Appointment With The Underground (CD is super reminiscent of Pignatelli's bass playing in Goblin.
On top of that, the synth work is also very Goblin. The drums in this song serve as more of a backbone, with some very nice Neil Peart style drum fills. Slowly, this song becomes a symphony between the drumming and keyboards.
It's quite nice. The song starts with a short and simple keyboard sequence that allows for the bass and drumming to build tension, until is finally breaks free. Along with Challenger Deep, this song would contend for most Goblin influence. The thing about Legacy is, this song reaches soaring heights of pure awesomeness that Goblin rarely ever reached at their best, and this is coming from a huge Goblin fan! This song is the perfect example of Zombi's sound. I know more than a couple people who think so.
This song, like Digitalis, bursts out of the gate at full speed. This song features some John Carpenter sounding synth work, but jammed into a rocking song that only lets up in order to blow your mind again. The song starts with swelling pad synth that sounds reminiscent to a late 70s Vangelis album. Then things take a dark turn when the keyboards start to build a ominous tension and Patera builds a driving tribal drum experience.
The song makes you believe it's about to explode, but it only teases you before going into a section of the song that allows anyone familiar with Tangerine Dream to hear the major influence on these musicians. Again, they start to build with sequencers and drumming, when all of the sudden the bass comes slamming in adding a new dynamic as it builds to a dizzying battle between the drumming and driving bass line.
We are then again led into a passage that reminds strongly of Pheadra era Tangerine Dream. And once again, the guys start building off of the sequencer until they are pounding into your head during the final moments of the song. I truly believe this is a masterpiece of music, and that is why I am awarding this album 5 stars. If any Zombi album deserves that honor, Surface To Air is most definitely it. Review by progaeopteryx Prog Reviewer. Often with longer parts with only a steady simple rythm figure and sequencing synths playing the same motif over and over again.
Usually after a while a simple melody is played and sometimes more synth layers are put on top. The music is pleasant and easy on the ears but sometimes also a bit too close to sounding like muzak for comfort.
Zombi tread a fine line here but thankfully they mostly keep on the right side of it. The album is well produced and the musicianship is decent, but "Escape Velocity" is not exactly an album that blows me away. Still a 2. These two guys are obviously inspired by Tangerine Dream. Trouble is that whilst they may sound like TD, they completely fail Freeway - Zombi Squad - Appointment With The Underground (CD absorb the difference between layered synths, or the same that actually has substance to it - for good measure.
In my previous blurbs on their other albums I didn't spare this band. This time I can't be even that generous when it comes to this album.
Here, I am confronted with extremely boring soundscapes. Somewhat reminiscent of very early TD with the dark, cosmic approach. So what's wrong here then?
There is no trace of substance to any of these indulgent pieces that go nowhere. OK, this is Zombi's first release and probably done when they were still adolescent, thinking that any sound may equal artistic merit.
How on earth did they manage to get a contract for this? I can relate to complex, or simplistic forms of expressions happily - as long as they have substance. This effort however, is as close to the Album) as I've heard in a long time. The most frustrating part is that every now and then, these cats come up with something very pleasing, Album), almost by mistake. Not here though. This band seems to embrace some of TD's approach.
