CD REVIEW: Max Tyrell - Unseen Worlds
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Max Tyrell
Genre: Easy Listening
CD Review:
I'm not sure what to make of this one right off the bat, so I think I'll steal from the promo kit for a minute. 'This cd is a collection of lyrical comments on 'life' and it's two most elemental aspects; the physical universe and life force, elan vital, etc. Inspired by musicians such as Brian Eno, Robbie Robertson, Peter Gabriel and Daniel Lanois, I have developed my own musical touch and made this a cd of spiritual poetry with funky rhythms and dreamy sounds that comment on the state of the spirit in an endless entanglement with the physical world.'

Yeah. Yeah, now that I think of it, that's what I meant to say. I can certainly hear the Eno and the Gabriel seeping out between the grooves of the cd, and it pleases me. I'm smiling. Right now. I'm listening to 'Beautiful' which is correctly named. The sounds that swirl and bubble among the multi-voices is an experimental reaction in love song making. Drum and high hat programming in and out of instruments I can't even begin to name.

Then there is the power of the hypnotist from 'Neon Lights (and all that jazz)' which tells me that Max Is going to be the next Eno if he keeps this up. Record 20 more albums, mate, and you'll make it. It seems you have a lot to say, and I'm grateful for the eloquent speech.
