Customer Reviews

WOW!

Sorry, Mr. Offical Album Reviewer, but this album is mind-blowingly fantastic. It's one of the very few recordings I've been specifically trying to find since the world went digital. This is Pat Moraz at his wacked-out, over-the-top best, both compositionally and performance-wise. Nobody could 'play' the tone bending wheel like this man, and he always went about ten steps further than anyone else would dare, to the point where the manipulation of the musical note becomes the primary influence on the direction the musical piece goes... and then he'd make a sharp left and continue on in completely unexpected directions. This album shows a man in the prime of his ever-inventive career. His work here and on Yes' "Relayer" are the peaks of his electronic playing and composing. Unfortunately, his personal and public behavior in the 80's gave him more of a reputation as a litigious egomaniac than a serious musician. The only other work of his I can recommend is "Windows Of Time".

The Best Patrick Ever

This album has the best sounds of any recording I have ever listened to. I loved it on vinyl, and I am so excited to hear it again after all these years digitally. I've been searching for this for years! If you liked 70's prog rock analog synthesized sound, this is the record for you! If you don't like 70's prog rock, what's the matter with you?

This is Moraz at Macumba—he is a musical genius

Jungles of the World hooks you with its Brazilian Amazon atmosphere. Temples of Joy are just that: JOY. Conflict is a track that I never thought I’d want to listen to a 2nd time around. I now know every beat, every change—every section—it has no lyrics but the track SPEAKS about war and its aftermath. Primitivization and Keep the Children Alive are the only tracks with lyrics and they fit so well—‘Intentions’ is, in my humble opinion, the loveliest four minutes of piano I have ever heard. It is just that beautiful and Realization is a macumba send-off.

Though ‘Conflict’ is the most satisfying piece here (and different than ANYTHING you have ever heard, trust me) I keep coming back to Intentions. It is just THAT good.

After playing a role in the success of Yes' Relayer album in 1974, keyboardist Patrick Moraz launched a solo career and became one of the more celebrated keyboardists of his age. During the '70s, when Moraz reached his prime as an artist, the keyboard was still a new and complex instrument. Technology was still evolving in the age before the personal computer. For this reason, Moraz's trailblazing keyboard work startled his audience. He practiced a new and exciting sound that was ahead of its time,...
