Universal Cycle by Eple Trio, 2014

SCORE: 2 HUZZAH!*
The liner notes that came with this album starts with "You start in the barren dessert, and then you walk through the woods". I do not agree. This is a superbly executed soundtrack to long forgotten genres of science fiction movies about terraforming new planets. It should be treated this way when you listen to this excellent album. If you are only in for the Jazz - go away. This isn't remotely in the Jazz family. It's something different. However, if you are in for some exciting inner eye imagery - then this is a collectible must-have.

This album is not for cold-hearted bastards!

It's dark. Cold. Minus 455 degree Fahrenheit, or more accurately -235 degrees Celsius, or even more accurately -508.15 Kelvin. Cold and dark. Starship Age of Discovery, have been in Outer Space for 341 years. The crew has been frozen for 339 years. Now, in the latest stage ...

* The DPM Rating System
When we rate an album or concert etc we rate it on the "Huzzah!" system. A score can be between 1 and 3 huzzahs:
1 Huzzah! - The reviewer likes it. You should give it a listen!
2 Huzzah! - The reviewer recommends it - and is delighted it is part of his/her collection
3 Huzzah! - The reviewer strongly recommends it - and it has already entered heavy rotation on his/her personal playlists.

On rare occasions there may be a 0 Huzzah! review. The reasons will be explained in the article. On equally rare occasions you may even see a 4 Huzzah ... well explain that another time :)

We dont do negative reviews because we review what we like.

Hey Ruben!

Cool review!
Just as a side note. There's no editing done at the points you claim as mixing errors.
It's all there (piano phrases and damper noise) as captured by the microphones.
Sometimes the imperfections add more life to music than the clinical perfection.

Cheers,
- Morgan
