Brooks' music is compelling to hear; a collection of unique original soundscapes which are graceful and elegant. "Time Walk" in particular is an aural feast of emotions and a welcome edition to The ED catalog. Comprised of nine original compositions, my favorite (and one of the album's highlights) was "Rainbow Warrior," an 8-minute excursion into a field of dreams. Brooks smoothly integrates his bold composing instincts with musical technology's limitless palette of color. This is the 10th release by Mike and his first release on ED. His music has a definite spacey feel with a very Teutonic style of synth playing. He creates a wide range of musical textures, from classic space music along the lines of KS, Eno and early Vangelis, to soaring sequencer-driven pieces reminiscent of TD's Phaedra LP. I highly recommend it. This album is available from Clive Littlewood, c/o Electronical Dreams, Silverton Villa, Higher Bugle, St. Austell, Cornwall PL26 8PY, England.
