‘Dream State’ sets the tone with it evocative deep strings, sampled vocals and gentle, drifting melody atop a simple but effective rhythm. The mood is repeated with the excellent ‘Paris Rain’ while the soulful and heartfelt ‘Lana’s Theme’ effectively strips the composers emotions bare. ‘Waiting For the Horizon’ hints at a rhythmic and sequenced style found in Robert’s earlier career, while ‘Star Crossed’ is a compelling mix of rhythm, melody and experimental atmospherics.
‘Lady of Light’ delightfully continues the ethereal and dream like feel with more sampled voice and an almost classical feel, before the closing title track twists and turns between gentle vocal and sequenced passages and a rock rhythm finale.
‘Phoenix Rising’ is actually, at its heart, a very laid back album. But that said, it contains some of the most beautiful, involving music from Robert Fox in many years.
