Cybiontís third release was a refreshing album to review. Itís a lot different to everything I have reviewed before but I was looking for a challenge and I found it. With the album titles of 'Music from a Living Universe' and 'Dark Side of my Spoon', I was a bit sketchy but was very shortly presently surprised.
From the first track I was thrown into deep memories of listing to Nick Cave during summer road trips during my youth. These memories creep up on me just like both albums have. Not so much a two CD set but more of a adventure that is mostly harmless but boosts emotional flavours leaving you wanting more.
'Music from a Living Universe' is an emotional soup supplied to allow you to explore different dimensions to expand your imagination. The third track entitled 'Sounds' was my favourite track with vocals from Melissa Malthus providing the catch.
'Dark Side of my Spoon' is ponderous and dark and the lyrics are his storytelling. To quote ďDark Side of my Spoon, goes to other places, evoking feelings that I would not like others to carryĒ, which is the feeling I get due to the different undertone unravelled through the speakers.
This is a great album to chill to with undertones of the Velvet Underground or the Cure.
Give it a try and you just may like it.
French scientist and visionary Joel de Rosnay, argues that we are on the verge of a profound evolutionary leap. This next stage in the natural progression from lower to higher levels of organization Ė cell into organism, organism into population, population into ecosystem Ė is the cybiont. A planetary super organism made up of all humans, machines, organisms, networks, and nations. A planetary brain - with humans as its neurons.
