Eric Alexandrakis - I.V. Catatonia
By Michael Allison [02-28-2002]
Artist: Eric Alexandrakis (www.ericalexandrakis.com)
Title: I.V. Catatonia
Genre: Experimental Pop
Welcome to the strange and experimental world of Eric Alexandrakis. The sounds and songs on this album portray a sophisticated blend of musical mutation in the genre areas of pop, classical and experimental soundscapes. The music on this CD is somewhat like a dream. A very strange dream. One of those dreams that you wake up from and say, "What the hell was that?" The sounds that are used on this album are a unique and sometimes bizarre blend of everyday sounds and noises. There are also songs on this album that make you wonder why you haven't heard more music like this. The potential for this music to become copied by the mainstream artist is very likely. The soundscapes are just a nice filler that are fun to hear and make the album a little more interesting.
If you're looking for nothing but 22 tracks of music, you're not going to find it here. The songs and samples switch off through the entire CD. This allows the listener breathing room and makes for an enjoyable album. The recording quality is remarkable. For something that was recorded on a 4-track, I expected the sound quality to be sub-par, but I was very impressed by what I was hearing. Overall, this CD is something that I think most listeners will enjoy. It may not be for everyone, but what music is?
