9/10 according to Ian (Norman Records) on Thu 28 Feb, 2013
Synth legend JD Emmanuel returns with his first new material in 30 years, ‘Time Traveler’ is full of polyrhythmic swirls and trance like head trips into the beyond, made entirely from vintage synths like Prophets and Mono Evolver keyboards that breathe extra-terrestrial sounds directly into your head! There’s not a lot of variation in tracks but that doesn’t matter, the music takes you on a fulfilling journey that’s probably best enjoyed on headphones so that the sonic lushness gets straight into your ears!
Having to put up with only reissues of his past work like ‘Wizards’ and ‘Trance Formations’, it will be refreshing for fans to hear new material in such a long time, with contemporaries such as Tangerine Dream and Vangelis trying to move with the times it’s great to see someone like Emmanuel sticking to traditions and what he does best, sonic experimentation when it’s this good can be a seriously enjoyable experience!

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.
