Its rhythms are suggestive, its cello phrasings majestic. Its soaring, sprawling soundscapes preach revolution in a manner more vivid than the most eloquent of words. This recording is four years old, and persists in an eerie half-life. It was taped, not for commercial speculation, but for the fulfilment of its members' transient needs. It serves as a memento of three heady months of discovery and joy. From the opening reflective piano of "a dream woke me" to the gradually mounting tension of the closing title track, "Forward!" offers ten instrumental tunes of devastating beauty, punctuated only by the occasional burst of redemptive, startling ferocious climax. Lovers of Constellation Records and Rachels will not be disappointed.
