Style: Ambient

Unstable Elements are Kornev Maxim and Epifanov Andrew, two guys from Russia and this is their debut album.
My first (and only until this album) experience with Unstable Elements was in the A Magical Journey 2 comp. and their track Technical Illusions. This track was simply unbelievable and made me buy their same titled album. Here it is:

1. 44100Hz is a perfect track to discover Unstable Elementís music. Very emotional pads and crystal melodies floating around together with nice downtempo kicks. Some of you, youíd call it typical, I call it amazing. Itís nice peaceful ambient very emotional and pure electronic. Great track!
2. Behind The Sun has a much more happy feeling than 44100Hz at least in the first half. Nice simple melodies make you smile together with a really nice breakbeat percussion. In the middle of the track it slows down a bit before the melodies start again. Perfect track for mornings.
3. With Artificial Sense now, we get a more melancholic feeling. The pads and the melodic lines were created to make you sad (in a good way of course). Again the kick is very well done. Itís breakbeat but Ďflowsí vey smoothly and doesnít bother you. Thereís an old school Goa feeling in this track. Beautiful!
4. Elemental just like Behind The Sun has a more shiny Ďimageí and it will certainly make you happy. Still it has this nostalgic feeling like all of the tracks here, especially in the second half where the pads are stronger. Nice one.
5. Spring Feelings is slightly different than the rest of the tracks. First of all this is surely a track for the spring season. Everytime I listen to it I get images of fields filled with flowers. The differences in this track are the flute (very well played) and some very happy playful melodies which have a different color than the rest of the album. Spring track for sure.
6. Otium Post Negotium is what Psymbient is all about IMO. Nice emotional pads, a liquid bass and of course nice melodies. Itís a winner track that almost everybody will love and again a track that reminds me the old days. Cool!
7. What Do You Want To Forget? is maybe the most melancholic track in the album. Itís a track made for the cloudy autumn mornings. The emotions here are so strong that almost made me cry the first time I listened to it. A fantastic journey, a great ambient track for all the melancholic ambient lovers.
8. Martian Atmosphere is again a visual track. Everytime I listen to it Iím thinking of the space. Itís a track very slow and peaceful but also very Ďcoldí just like space. Again a track that took my mind some years ago, back in the Goa period. Fantastic!
9. The melancholy keeps going. Mind Weaver just like the the three previous tracks is very melancholic and very, very deep. The downtempo percussion is perfect here. Itís not complicated or annoying, but very slow and matches perfectly with the crystal melodies. Great track again!
10. And time for my favorite track of this album. Field Of Innocence is the only track here that has no percussion at all. Itís beatless, atmospheric ambient all the way. It sounds very minimalistic, but this is what I love the most. Itís a track made for mind traveling when you have your eyes closed. Very emotional again and melancholic (at least for me). Simply amazing!!!
11. Chillout Vibes is again a track that will you send many years back to the past with this Goambient style floating melody. Itís a very short track, more like an outro, but it works great!

Overall, itís a great album. Itís the kind of ambient I like. It sounds a bit simple, but IMO thatís the reason itís so good. The Unstable guys didnít care to release an ambient album that sounds more sophisticated or complicated. This is nice, melancholic, emotional, simple ambient just how good ambient must be! Plus, it has many old school elements. No, itís not perfect and yes none of the track is as unbelievably amazing as the Technical Illusions track in the Magical Journey compilation, but trust me this is beautiful music!!!

Fav: 1(!), 3, 4, 7(!), 8, 9, 10(!!!)

I think I must review this as well, this cd is one of the best of 2006 for me, as Ormion described so well... melancholic, deep, melodic spacy ambient with a trancy touch, just the way I like it! A pitty it had almost no attention, because Unstable Elements deserves it! for me it gets a 9/10 (which is REALLY high)
