VA- Greatful Dance; Geo TV

First I have to say thanks to Dr. Spook for proscribing this particular sound remedee to me. Anyone who has picked up previous Geo TV works knows, that these tracks can cure what ails you! And we are greatful!

This is my first attempt at a review, so expect it to be a little remedial. But of course I'll do my best.

#1 Virtual Light- "Dear Human"
The opener is an artist that is new to me. But the light breaks work as a welcoming sound. The track is all together pretty light, bordering on fluffy. I thought it would do just as well on a morning star cd. It does give you a taste of things to come during the first break, but aside from that I don't get to much out of this track. And so we move on...

#2 Hyper Frequencies- "27 eme Parallel"
I like these noises at the beginning. I always have. Its like an unraveling metal ribbon bouncing to and fro like a pendulum. It's accompanied with a very bouncy but solid kick and bass for about 1 1/2 min before fading into a mischieviously urgent driver.

Maybe it's the ticky mid-high noises, but what ever it is, it does a good job of winding you up and unraveling several times. This track is definitely a notch up from the opener. A good sign.

#3 Khopat- "Full On Experience"

Spook said this was his favorite, and I can see why. This track goes everywhere. It definitely lets you know this is a dark star album. There is never a dull moment. It's an urgent story with unexpected turns, but the message is clear... Get Your Ass Movin! Solid example of Geo TV quality. Kudos to the artist for the experience.

#4 Poison Engineers- "Twisted Number"

Another artist that is unfamiliar to me, so I didn't know what to expect. I like the bass. Its dark and driving, and revs up every now and then. the noise patterns are fun too. the artists make good use of the launch pad moment.(the one at the end of the phrase that all the sounds crescendo towards before fading to a slight silent instant where it all becomes oblivion, and then snaps back to a different dimension) This one builds into a slightly cheesy, but not all together bad, anthem at the end. A good track, but not as well as #3.

#5 Virgin Suicide- "Rest Your Tears"

This one gets super cheese, but i love it anyway. It doesn't get chaotic at all, but it uses some interesting off key sounds, like a slowed record, and god awful scorpionesque vocal sample, that cracks me up.

#6 Delysid vs. Wicked Wires- "Crawling Ghosts"

This track starts off pretty ominous. the vocal sample sounds like Delysid's doing. a cerebral clip that makes its way in and out all through the track. the door slam/knock makes for a very ominous feel, in the beginning, but the body didn't quite deliver on that feeling.

#7 Electrypnose- "Ornic"(Sushupti rmx)

When I first heard this, I wondered why Electrypnose wasn't being his usual screetchy -to-a-halty self, now I come to find out its a remix. Makes sense. You can hear Sushupti's influence right from the second phrase. No screetchy breaks, just straight blast you in the ears. I'm not sure that its an improvement on electrypnoses sound, but you can definitely tell somethings different here? A brutal ride.

#8 SophiaX vs. Phsychoz- "Chicken Virus"

We are well into the second have of the journey, and into the thick of the album. This track is expansive. The bass is fast and tight and seems to streamline to the third eye and chest regions, while all the other sounds bound, swirl, and grow outward. a very enjoyable track, and one easily lost in.

#9 Audiopathik- "Pandemoniak"

Moving from the humerous dark to the dark dark mmmmm! This ones a killer. I can't tell if that's Kris kristofferson, or Wilfred Brimley in the beginning, but regardless: Deamos Ominus! Pounding spikes, computer bleeps, and screetchy winds swirl around a pounding kick and a bass line that rubbs a balloon just the right way. I like the way the artist pulls the track back just to blow the bubble a little bigger. Nice one!

#10 Psychoz- "Dark"

I've heard a few of Psychoz's tracks before on previous Geo TV releases. This guys nuts. His tracks are thick and heavy. It's hard to wade through all the sound, but mood is as undeniable as the title.

#11 Virtual Light- "Radeon Radio"

Sweet. This track is a perfect counter to the opener. Sinister synths, and a wicked breakbeat. VL does a great job of keeping this track fresh w/o ever leaving the intial wickedness. beatiful closer!

Favorites: 2,3(!),4,5,8,9(!),11(!)

So, there you have it. Geomagnetic TV's newest release. I'm not sure how much insite I gave, but if you're familiar w/ the label and it's commitment to excellent tunes, then I'm not sure how much insite you need. Thanks again to Spook for the tunes (sorry this took so long). Thanks to Random for his touchBeautiful sound man), and to Witchdokta for tuning me into Geo TV.
