Opus Instrumentalis: Vibrations brings to us an eclectic combination of what I would call somewhat dancey yet pretty chilled electronic music. These are not proper dance tracks. They just have some dance elements. Enchanted for example is more a pop song than anything. The choice of drum sound though is pretty strange for a pop song but adds to the overall quality of this sorta mish mash style album. Genuine Article brings to us some Big Beat goodness while Flawless sounds like a slow moving retro house track. Trance Sends makes good the name of the artist. Blackman sends us trancey music but with a bit too much variation to be suitable for the dance floor. That makes it all the more better for listening!
It has been commented that the listening to the album is like a listening to an audio film from front to back. Indeed Opus Instrumentalis: Vibrations shows clearly the Blackman’s affinity for and influence from films with use of a ton of orchestral string pads and of course the way the songs and tracks are arranged.
It’s just a terrific album to go through. Some tracks you may find to be cliche but the style, atmosphere and high production of the album makes the album worth listening to more than
This slow, moody track with its catchy bassline is all goodness. It, like all the other darker sounding songs, balances the happiness and uplifting mood of the rest of the album nicely.
A chillout track! I like the synths here. They are very nice and fit really well together.
I’m a sucker for catchy piano tunes. The addition of a strange but pretty cool drum loop with atmospheric pads does it for me. It makes my day all that much better. Listen to this track and your day may just be better. The joys of simple pop stuff.
