Album Review

Juno Reactor are best known for their over the top cinematic trance epics utilized in equally overwrought action adventure films like The Matrix: Reloaded and The Matrix: Revolution, and the sweeping strings that open their sixth full-length album in just over a decade instigate a familiar rush for those who like their adventure administered with a fair amount of sci-fi/fantasy flair. But the warm-up of "Conquistador I" is so long, as it pulls back from digital orchestration to ethnic guitar meandering, that when the industrial-techno stomp of "Conquistador II" finally kicks in, it is almost jarring. It is also one of the few moments that Juno Reactor isn't kicking video game butt, as "Giant" hits even harder with Reece basslines pilfered from the darker side of jungle and "War Dogs" fully warps into an electronic metal band, albeit one with some kitchy world music leanings. This all-genre stomp of course finds its apex in "Mona Lisa Overdrive" and "Navaras," the two tracks taken from the Matrix films, remixed here but still shameless in their cathartic orchestral epiphanies. Only the dirge of "Angels and Men" offers reprieve for an entire song, although blaze-and-smolder dynamics are one of the group's specialties throughout. Those who loved Juno Reactor for their hyperdrive psychedelic trance of yore may or may not appreciate this direction taken in earnest since 2000's Shango. But perhaps a new generation raised on Xbox adrenalin blasts can handle the shock'n'awe.

A Consoladtion of Their Sound

I believe this album to be the doorway to a new direction much like their Shango album was for them to head and venture off into new directions. This is why you will see their next album, Gods and Monsters (2008), encorporate more of a lyrical basis. It starts off subtle and collected with Part One of Conquistador. After the almost six minutes of guitars, atmopsheric resound and chanting vocals, we get the conclusion in Part Two. I would say it is a remix of Conga Fury but it can also stand by itself as an original piece. After that you are treated to a remake of "Burly Brawl" from the Matrix: Reloaded, now titled Giant, in all its glorious sounds, flavors and complexities. One can honestly listen to this whole album through and wonder when they can get their next fix. It is truly an outstanding album and I believe it to be the epitome of Juno Reactor's sound. The eternal and plunging sounds and riffs on Mutant Message is truly surreal and plant you in a different realm. I'd say give this album a try and see for yourself if it does not live up to your expectations. Oh! and please do not discount Zwara...it is a heart felt track and speaks volume to masses unknown and known.

Not just music, but an experience.

I didn't feel like I was too into this type of music, or this album at first. But, while listening to it, I realized that this isn't at all the kind of music you listen to normally. This kind of music must be listened to expecting an experience... Like an adventure... and this album will do that. It will take your mind to places you've not explored.

Unforgettable

This is a amazingly awesome song!!
