Within the mind there are many paths to travel, landscapes that seem foreboding but worth the risk. That's this album, bending the soundscape, daring us to seek out those risks, giving a soundtrack to events we hesitate to view or follow through in full. Close your eyes, let the scenes play out, feel the release from within, the opening of life as it expands.
Favorite track: Cloud Hole (Remastered).
What I get from Bedtime For Robots is the pure joy of creative expression. There is a positive and uplifting energy about these songs and you're drawn in from the very start. Not your standard 'electronic' music... each track is a new exploration, complete with inventive melodies, jagged and juxtaposing rhythms. You want to explore the brain that came up with some of this material. Solid body of work here. Get on it.
Favorite track: Bag Daddy (Remastered).
Michael Ferentino remains a key figure in those breaking down the dividing walls between rock and electronica. Darkly cinematic and a must-have for any discerning music collector.
Favorite track: Vicariously Snowed In (Remastered).
