"This is my No. 1 disc of the 1990s -- a title I don't give lightly, and a title that "Duality" has kept almost from the moment I picked it up in its original 1992 release.In a darkened room, perhaps with headphones on, the opening synth-horn fanfare, angelic vocals, and heavy percussion of "Belle Epoque" immediately seize the soul and begin your journey into the depths of your mind where, as "Always" notes, "the universe is unfolding as it should."As In the Nursery's soundtrack plays out, it triggers the greatest hits of your own personal soundtrack, over the typewriter and solemn recitations of "Red Harvest," over the symphonic urgency of "A Valediction" and to the final seconds of "Mecciano" where everything stops and "makes you end where you begun."Alternately serene and intense, but always intricately structured, compelling and multilayered, the music exudes an incredible level of sophistication that transcends the "Industrial" section into which it usually gets lumped. The electronic instrumentation is flawlessly crisp; the multifaceted percussion knows when to be bold and when to be tame; the spoken-word recitals are just enough to trigger emotional responses without demanding specific vision."Duality" is not background music. These are timeless compositions that demand your full attention. In return, you'll get a musical reward the likes of which I have never experienced from any other piece of contemporary music. Even eight years later, "Duality" can still make me ecstatic and make me cry, all within about the same 45 minutes."Duality" was the culmination of a three-disc progression into neoclassical, symphonic and sountrack explorations that began with "L'Esprit" and "Sense." All three are outstanding works, but "Duality" easily stands at the top of the heap and is the one to buy today if you're buying only one."
25 YEARS AND STILL GOT IT !!
