  1. Amazon review

    After hearing the especially beautiful “Beijing” on Spinner.com I clicked to discover this masterwork. Whether listening in the background at work, or focusing on this music and the powerful images it evokes, I found it a great source of peace, focus,and inspiration. If you need a time to carve out a peaceful rest in a busy life — and want to take a great tour of beautiful images — some you didn’t even know you could conjure — tune in to David Wright and “Dissimilar Views”. I loved it.

  2. Macromusica

    Gracias a su iniciativa privada, el sintetista britanico David Wright ha conseguido editar hasta el momento 5 CDs en solitario que le confirman como una de las figuras actuales de la musica electronica en Europa. Tras sus 2 primeros engendros, totalmente infumables, ‘Marilynmba’(1991) y ‘Between Realities’ (1992), en 1993 nos llegabasu primera obra interesante ‘Ocean Watch’, un excelente trabajo en el que su vena a lo Klaus Schulze dejaba paso a otras influencias mas realistas y eficaces, particularmente Vangelis y Jean Michel Jarre. Tras la subsiguinte publication de ‘Moments In Time’ (1994), otro fiasco aunque con la singularidad de incluir un tema de casi 70 minutos y otro de 10, pues el pasado ano nos llegaba su ultima obra, ‘Dissimilar Views’, su mejor disco hasta la fecha y el mas variado tanto en ritmos como en melodias o estilos de produccion. Un atractivo cocktail de Jan Hammer, Tangerine Dream y Vangelis, agitese antes de usar. En cualquier caso, este CD no esta a la altura del reciente album que Wright edito con Code Indigo, aunque inculye algunos cortes de gran calidad en plan ambiental, cosmico o sinfonico. Por tanto, estamos frente a un buen album de musica electrona contemporanea, con 15 piezas y casi 80 minutos de musica.

  3. Sequences

    Davids 9th release incorporates the acclaimed music from the aborted ‘Korce Project’ album, as well as other new material. Already hailed as his best album too date, it certainly is his most disciplined.

    ‘Legend Of the Tundra’, recorded at the 2nd EMMA festival and based loosely on ‘Taiga’ (from Between Realities, AD5CD), is vintage DW with an optimitic theme but with frenetic interludes which provide welcome contrast.
    ‘Beijing’, originally conceived during the ‘Ocean Watch’ sessions certainll evokes an inscrutable Chinese flavour. But my highlight is ‘Rysheara’, a beautifully understated piece with simple sequencer rhythm but evocative melody. Curiously, it’s all over too soon and the repeat button is hit again. ‘Cosmicon’ also emerged from the improvisations at the 2nd EMMA festival and is more impressionistic whilst retaining the DW melodic trademark. ‘Albania’, the main theme is more uptempo with busy sequencers, symphonic treatments and flutey synth.

    The melancholic ‘Smiling Shadows lie’ features an effective saxaphone lead and suitably invokes the sadness of the Albanian children. ‘Korce’ is strident, celabatory and unpredictable. ‘Room of Dolphins; is minimalistc and features hypnotic piano artpeggios which succesfully instill tranquillity, as does ‘Boarders of Colour’, which again utilises effective saxaphone treatment. ‘Bennys Theme’ returns David to his his melodic roots with a gentle, poignant sound before the more uptempo ‘Albania part 2’ returns in modified form.

    Another reworked piece ‘Love Remembered’, is unashamedely a return to Davids early ‘Reflections’ style of wide eyed romanticism.while ‘Returning Tides’ is stylistically similar to ‘Rysheara’. The 17 minute epic ‘Dissimilar Views’ is dedicated to those who prefer more ‘esoteric’ music. taken from the 2nd EMMA performance, it will appeal to those who prefer the ambient ‘Beyond the Airwaves’. As always, a generous 79 minutes offering gives fans value for money and some of his best music to date, with a little more variation than previous outings and to match the content is the effective cover design.
