Dreamstate Review

by AllMusic

Dreamstate is a multifaceted album, full of layered sounds, strong melodies, shifting tempos, key changes, holophonic sound effects, and stereo interplay. Mark Josephson is a synthesist and violinist whose music explores the spaces between electronic rock and symphonic classicism, in a melange of styles often reminiscent of Vangelis. He mixes the straightahead dynamism of rock, with thumping bass and forceful drums, as melodies twist and turn, constantly keeping listeners on their toes....This is an intriguing work on a grand scale, dynamic and subtle, rhythmic and spacey, vibrant in its musical paradoxes.
