Univers Zero - Implosion (2004)

The eight album from this band from Belgium.

The band was expanded to an eleven piece big band on this album. The lineup was a drums, percussion, bass, guitars, accordion, keyboards, samples, violin, viola and woodwinds.

The band has come on in leaps and bounds since their debut album. Their music was really dark on their first albums.

The band has mellowed a lot on the more resent albums.

Implosion almost finds the band in a cheerful mood.... but only just.

The music has some darkness. But not as much as usual. The violins, viola and piano is up against the woodwinds here and they balance each others out in a nice harmony.

The music is still avant-garde chamber music and it has nothing whatsoever to do with rock music. It is still pretty melodic.

The melodies and the rather more avant-garde pieces are good and this forty minutes long album is a well worth listen.

This band has again delivered a good album.

3 points
