I see a parallel between highly stylized electronic music and modern art. There are unknown musical artisans and technicians in every corner of the world, slaving away at extremely complex and worthwhile performances. When you get lucky, you can find an artist or two who open you up to an entirely new world of music.


Thus is the goal of The Sound of Revolution, a collection of tracks from artists as famous as Fluke and as unheard of as Nobody. If you haven't heard of either of them, don't worry, that isn't the point. This CD is an entrée to a world of melodically swirling, bass pumping, space music. Mind you, this is no disco-club, house crap. Revolution is a CD filled with demo cuts that will light up your stereo as you've never heard before.

As Dark Side of the Moon has earned legendary status as one of the ultimate high end demos records for both its melodic content and its spacey recording, Revolution is a modern example of a recording that takes you to new, never heard before places. The songwriting is nowhere near as good as with Dark Side, but the trip is well worth while.
