Genre/Influences: Cinematic, Dark-Ambient.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Karl Ture Rydby has accomplished his fourth full length album to date under the Planet Supreme moniker. It’s the second production released by Cryo Chamber.
Content: Planet Supreme moves on creating deeply, Ambient sound atmospheres. The work features different, crispy, little noises and other field recording impressions while carried by retro-like strings. There’s an interesting contrast between relaxing passages and darker, mysterious, parts.
+ + + : The main strength of the album is for sure its deeply, Ambient, sensation. It’s quite diversified and even a bit schizophrenic switching from deeply, relaxing, moments into darker, menacing, parts. “Enter Lucid Field” is one of these dark exposures and definitely my favorite one for reaching a climax.
– – – : I’m less convinced by the ‘classical’ Ambient side of the work although I’m sure this is maybe what will appeal for a wider audience.
Conclusion: This work gives me the vision of a beautiful and graceful feather driven by a bleak wind.
Best songs: “Enter Lucid Fields”, “A Northern Blaze”, “Shuttle”.
