The final doorway to our salvation from Earthshine’s haunted machine is called Steam up that ENGINE. The start of this track is sublime; most electronic fans on listening to it will be in rapture. This reminds me of some of the deeper and darker tracks of both Kevin Kendle and Geigertek, both masters of this genre.
Cox has built something quite brilliant here, and one can almost see the Ghost in the Machine! The floating and chilling tones continue until we are gifted one of the smoothest segments on the album at around three minutes, where the keyboards and some very light percussive qualities drift around us like a musical mist. This is a release that you must listen to in its entirety dear reader, if you do not do so, you will miss something extremely artistic, like the Wakeman styled synth at around four and a half minutes. This in my view is simply inspired and almost takes us back to grand of 70’s progressive rock era.
This leads us onwards to a combination of drums and keyboards that are amazing to listen to, my third time now and I still want more. As we move on down the musical rails of this track, Cox even has time to lay a little gentle jazz ethic on us towards the latter half of this quite incredible composition. Now carefully listen to the end of this one, it will leave you with the feeling of, is there still more to come, is there something standing right behind you? If you’re climbing the stairs whilst listening to this on your head phones, perhaps it may be a good idea, to not look over your shoulder before you turn out the light!
