Eccentric Orbit - Creation of the Humanoids. 2014 private
A long time ago, I reviewed a then new album by the Israeli group Trespass for Gnosis. The review basically states that if you like keyboard trio proggy prog circa 1972, then you must own “Morning Lights”. Well... same deal here. Maybe less similar to the Dutch group Trace and more like the Japanese virtuoso Motoi Sakuraba, but this still delivers the goods all day and all night. With some added and varied instrumentation, these guys could create that extra dimension similar to how Pochakaite Malko did on “Laya”. Special recognition to bassist Bill Noland, who likes to rip out some fuzz bass from time to time. Fuzz bass + mellotron = me like. Opener and closer are the definite highlights, as the aggressiveness plays well for Eccentric Orbit. This album drew almost straight 10s from the Gnosis rat pack (of which I'm part of), and I'm guessing that’s more a reflection of the nothing new assessment. But I tend to be generous to these kind of musical cheeseburgers and grade it a point higher. Big League stuff from the next iteration of Pye Fyte, itself a much neglected late 90s winner.
Notes coming soon for Creation of the Humanoids
