    Thomas Dimuzio(synthesizer/sampler) plus duos trios and combos.In the "new music","contemporary classical", "improvised music","electronic music" sphere.(say that five times fast)

    The 3 cd release is "Balance" and it's the real deal.

    When I look over these lists I feel inadequate and under-informed.

    Thanks a lot, people.

    Just picked up Motorpsycho's new one, The All Is One. What can I say? Except that this will definitely make my year end list.

    I liked The Tower a lot but actually missed The Crucible (which I have since corrected) and the three albums together create something that smells like a masterpiece to me.

    It's been a terrific year for our beloved genre...

    No need to be sorry! I'm glad it made your day.

    This album is not a style of music I typically listen to, but I've been making inroads into more electronic/ambient type stuff and this is one that I really enjoy. The "Collapsing Star" suite is just beautiful and transportative (is that a word?); it conjures images of eerie space flight through a dimming galaxy, which is always a good thing. Plus, it's not everyday that a friend of mine releases a CD (especially one this good). Crap... Now I'm being that guy.

    Edit: I'm actually listening to this CD again this morning, over some coffee. I've gathered from some other threads that you're possibly a fan of Tangerine Dream (). If I enjoy Between the Axiom and the Sigh, are there any TD albums I might like?
