AllMusic Review by

Liquid Structures in Solid Form is Ron Boots' most mature performance to date. His unique style of composing has been evolving -- slowly but surely -- into what listeners now know as the "Ron Boots sound." That does not mean that he has invented a new genre -- far from it. Boots has borrowed the best elements from many e-music styles and has incorporated them into his own tool box. This CD has it all: He uses Berlin school sequences, Portland atmospheres, Encinitas symphonics, Nashville processes, and -- most importantly -- Leystad sensitivities. (The cities refer to the homes of important e-music recording labels.) The atmospheres and symphonic synths surround deep sequences. The subtle rhythms carry the soundscape. Boots' own timing and musical savvy tie the elements together. This is his best CD so far. At this rate the sky is the limit in Boots' corner of the perpendicular universe.
