Chimpan A - The Empathy Machine. CD+DVD


Rob Reed and Steve Balsamo In these troubled times there is no better musician to turn to to lift your spirits than Mr Reed, 14 years in the making this electronica prog pop album has a classy selection of tunes that will brighten the darkest days. The collaboration with Jesus Christ legendary vocalist Steve Balsamo and a wonderful female cast headed by his fellow Magenta sidekick Tina Booth is five star stuff and was selected by none other than Jerry Ewing of Prog magazine as his album of the month so get the beers out and let your hair down!




Review The Telegraph:


Sometimes it is enough just to sound great. Welsh duo Chimpan A. Music to ... Finally, a recommendation for the even longer awaited second album from Chimpan A: The Empathy Machine. This is the painstakingly assembled work of an occasional Welsh due, Rob Reed (MAGENTA) and Steve Balsamo (The Storys). Their techno-psychedelic debut came out in 2007, blending Pink Floyd with TripHop to heady effect.


The follow up is every bit as good, a glossy mindtrip involving the philosophical spoken word of Tony Dallas and sensual vocals of Rosalie Deighton and Shan Coffi, all coalesing around burbling synths and echoing guitrs evoking classic prog rock with the chill out grooves of Massive Attack and Air. Full of rather flighty sci-fi notions of virtual emotion, it is an album of stoner bliss that you can close your eyes and drift away to.


Who doesn‘t feel like escaping into the ether for a bit these days?
