Well that incredibly busy chap Glen Johnson returns with a new full length CD under his much beloved Piano Magic guise and surprise, it's an absolute gem from start to finish! I can definitely hear influences from Coil to prime dark wave Depeche Mode in these haunting gothic tinged songs but the sheer depth & richness of the music on 'Ovations' suggests something more tribal & majestic. There's a discreet Eastern influence in parts, for instance the slinky 'March of the Atheists' suggests an Arabian-esque era Banshees with Ian Curtis on vocals but with some awesome swooping strings blowing on the undercurrent. The next track changes tack completely, employing a hard itchy electronic beat with bursts of guttural guitar shearing & mesmerising vocals. I'd normally be a little repelled by that kind of "electro goth" sound but somehow, 'On Edge' really appeals to me, its juxtaposition of atmospherics & intensity married with a warm, powerful production makes for arresting listening. I can see why Glen & his myriad projects are so popular now, he's the definitive craftsman, the grace & passion he injects into his records, each one a true, beautifully rounded collection, showcases an unstoppable talent with a finely tuned ear for neuron tingling detail. Big nods to Joy Division and the early 80s overcoat brigade, and why the hell not? A real treat.....on Make Mine Music
