8/10 according to Li'l Biz (Norman Records) on Thu 08 Apr, 2010Tomáš Dvořák is a Czech composer, musician and graphic artist who's been playing and composing music since 1996 focusing on the collision of fine arts and music. In that time he has contributed to several compilations and released his demo Hub via the internet. In 2001 he released his debut album Pocustone that bridges relatively distinct genres such as nu-jazz, electronic and modern contemporary music which led to the opportunity to produce the music for Machinarium, a point and click PC adventure game by Amantina Design. Dvořák's compositional skills are totally suited to such a project so it comes as no suprise that this is mint. The majority of material here plays to the atmosphere of the game so it feels both dramatic and rather cute, as all good video game soundtracks should be. Totally intriguing release this. I urge you to check it out... The game looks ace too. Oh yeah, each copy is signed by the author himself and contains three art prints from graphic artist Adolf Lachman.

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
