Optical Image - Back to Basics

Artist: Optical Image
P: 1996
Tom Habes is back in the guise of Optical Image. A single piece of unbroken music is on offer, though for convenience the disk is split into 8 tracks. So, with a title like 'Back to Basics' can we expect some "traditional" style EM? Well, not exactly. The opening section is an impressive piece, a complex mixture of uptempo sequences and rhythms fleshed out with some great keyboard work. Tom Habes' technical ability shines through on this album. He is a master at producing modern, complex EM arrangements. And if he set out to produce another soundtrack album in the mould of Chris Franke then he has succeeded. It's incredible that Tom Habes hasn't been snapped up to score a Hollywood blockbuster. I've a feeling though Tom fancied producing something a little more EM oriented, and unfortunately in this respect he's been less successful. For whatever reason Tom is stuck in "cut and thrust visual accompaniment" mode. If that's your "thing" though, then check this out. (GG)
