  1. Andy G

    Mirror Images’ pushes the sequencer into service immediately. And what good sequences Ashok creates, relatively bassy but subtle not distracting from the lovely floating lead lines. Everything combines together to create a wonderful kaleidoscopic listening experience. During the last couple of minutes the sequences are momentarily allowed to let rip but they are soon brought under control again to allow for a floating finish.

    The title track is co-composed with Rob Jenkins from Redshift and commences with a bright melody but it isn’t long before a ticking sequence joins it low in the mix. Abruptly all are replaced by deep symphonic pads. A rhythmic loop then comes in joined by another sequence, the thick pads still providing a tranquil atmosphere. Melodies come and go adding to the interest but not dominating. The sequences and rhythms gently weave around each other providing the main focus to a track which just gets better and better.

    ‘Gallery of Whispers’ begins with eerie echoing dripping effects. Its all very subterranean. Ominous dark pads swell and then at just before the three minute mark the first sequences enter, hurtling along at quite a pace. Around the five minute mark the sequence momentarily mutates into a sort of glockenspiel sound before disappearing. Slightly menacing pads return in force but it isn’t very long before we are speeding again on the back of a rapid sequence. It’s all very 70s sounding Tangerine Dream.

    ‘Turinissimo’ starts where the previous track left off, the same comparisons applying. More excellent sequences combine to form the best section on the album so far but it isn’t long before they disappear and are replaced by yet another superb atmospheric passage. Its as if Ash is trying to get as many ideas as possible into one number as things then descend into a gorgeous tranquil melodic couple of minutes. The lead lines are superb but then some nice splashing sequences start up again and accompanied by a rather twangy lead takes us to the end. Finally we have a remix of the title track. This time it has a more psychedelic feel bringing up images of a swirling colours. A bouncy sequence takes centre stage, effects sizzling around it.

    This is my favourite album by Ash to date. It has both feet planted firmly in the popular Retro style and should appeal to all fans of such music. My only slight criticism is that the album is quite short especially when taking into account that the last track is a remix though it is very different sounding to the original.
