GENERAL INFORMATION ===================== Album: Elysium Planitia Artist: Palancar Year: 2003 (this is the 2011 reissue) Genre / Style: Electronic / New Age / Drone / Electro / Ambient DESCRIPTION ================== While channeling classic releases by Vangelis and Jonn Serrie, Palancar has some fresh things to say. On Elysium Planitia (60'17") he (a.k.a. Darrell Wade Burgan) makes an enchanting first impression. At once subtle and commanding his work is beautifully simple and straightforward. Lyrical synth melodies sway above sustaining string pads while elsewhere gentle electro-rhythms softly pump beneath vaporous echo trails and a harmony of digital "oohs" and "aahs". The energy shifts and drifts between majestic synthesizer swells and deep rumbling sub-sonic quakes. We listeners hover blissfully in space one moment only to swoop down for an alien fly-by the next. This work is exceptional in its dark hued subtlety as well as its poignant space themes - the grandeur and mystery of the cosmos are both well represented. Although Elysium Planitia is an aural homage to the planet Mars, this album is better a pipeline into the artist's inner world. Every track highlights a remarkable facet, without any heaviness weighing the music down. - Chuck van Zyl/STAR'S END on 5 June 2009 https://www.starsend.org/ElysiumPlanitia.html FILE INFORMATION ===================== Number of Tracks: 8 (the tracks are not separated) NOTE: I am about to post the lossless version of this in alt.binaries.sounds.lossless.new-age, and there will be a cue file with that post ;^) Total Duration: 1:00:17 Total Size: 138 MBs (including scans, and txt) Parity Archive: Yes, 7% Ripped By: NMR Files Created on: NMR Ripped With: NMR Encoded At: 320k CBR / 44.1 KHz ID3 Tags: Yes TXT Created: 10 August 2019 Tracklist ---------------------------- 01) Abalos Undae 02) Cydonia Mensae 03) Elysium Mons 04) Aureum Chaos 05) Valles Marineris 06) Noctis Labyrinthus 07) Hellas Planitia 08) Olympus Mons POSTING ===================== Reposting Rules: Please wait at least 48 hours before requesting additional pars or reposting.
