The cover of this 1996 release by US synthesist Richard Burmer contains numerous medieval references and the opening track 'Procession of Treasure' certainly fits well, with synth themes accompanying a grandiose rhythm which heralds the music to come. 'Do not go Gentle into that Good Night' features a reading by Dylan Thomas and sets a poignant mood. Onto 'Cabrini' and this really is trademark Richard Burmer. Beautifully presented melodies are picked out on a variety of synth voices backed by Enya-type choral textures. 'Ghost Tower' is a powerful outing with a solid drumbeat providing the backbone for some more atmospheric theme building aided by guest flautist Tim Wheater. Not a lot happens, but it doesn't need to. It's all about feeling and mood, and this track has buckets of it - as does the next track 'Apples on the Windowsill'. Subliminal stylised electric guitar menacingly cradles delicate flute motifs to produce a stunning 5 minutes of latent power. 'These things will Change the Sleep of Angels' and especially 'Three Off a Grassy Shore' contain the sort of wide-eyed optimistic "feel-good" melodics which RB excels at, while sandwiched between them is 'Leaders in Frenzy' which juxtaposes a busy rhythm with some weird vocal treatments. The album ends with 'Revolving Faces of God' which features another finely crafted melody. I've been a great fan of Richard Burmer ever since his seminal 'On the Third Extreme' album. This latest work was a welcome reminder of how a gifted artist can produce moments of pure beauty through Electronic Music. Undoubtedly you have to be "in tune" with RB's subliminal style to really appreciate it. Those that are may well end up wearing this CD out.
