AllMusic Review by

Continuum is a large-scale symphonic synthesizer effort from Jon Jenkins and Paul Lackey. It comes from the good folks at Spotted Peccary Music. This is a very dramatic and energetic set of melodic compositions. Jenkins and Lackey are on top of their game with this grand soundscape. They have created very subtle and intricate atmospheres to surround the symphonic synth passages. Very subdued samples add realism to the arrangements. But the drama dominates the soundscape. Lackey and Jenkins build walls of sound that lead to a series of crescendos and, ultimately, to fitting climaxes. The atmospheres are part of the denouement. This is essential new age music. It will appeal to fans of Greg Klamt, Constance Demby, Kevin Keller, and John Flomer.
