Artist: The Quantom Dots
CD Title: Inventing Reality
Label: Sinister Records
Reviewer: Marcos Massarri
This record is sort of a prog rock amalgam of various musical influences while still coming across quite experimental w/ faint traces of a folk inspired trance somewhere out in desolate space. W/out following any particular trends, Eric Sterling & Dean Blair have created fourteen chapters of bleakness & gloom but not w/out it’s eclectic moments of surrealism that crawls soothingly like a thick cloud of smog w/ stand out’s like the opening “Center of Gravity”, “Seratonin”, “In the Walls”, the almost Depeche Mode vibe of “Where I am Nothing”, The Auction”, “Spores”, “System of Belief”, & others. This sounds like a disenchanted alien race conducting an equally haunting film score complete w/ dry ice; highly recommended!
