Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
A collection of unreleased or non-album tracks Roach composed between 1988 and 1992 (a particularly fruitful period), Lost Pieces covers a lot of terrain. The Tangerine Dream-ish "After the Dream" was written in the wake of Roach's seminal Dreamtime Return; the drum-box-driven "Mojave: At the Tree" suggests Roach's collaborations with Kevin Braheny, composed between the Western Spaces and Desert Solitaire albums; and "Red Shore" is the kind of gorgeous, haunting soundscape heard later on Well of Souls. The closing "Closer" is an uncharacteristic bit of musique concrète, a solemn, experimental collage of grunting rhythm, slithering noise, and reverberance. Though not as cohesive as The Magnificent Void or World's Edge, The Lost Pieces provides Roach-heads with an extra outlet for their tribal-ambient obsessions, with a few interesting revelations. --James Rotondi
 

CD Reviews

Good Roach material
Michael Mitchell | Sacramento, CA | 11/17/1998
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This cd contains various tracks which were only available in limited release. Some of the material sounds similar to his desert like motifs. Others are much more darker. Most of his material is similar to his wonderful world's edge cd's. A few tracks in particular, Since We are Away, Repose, and Closer, are all fine examples of Roach's wonderful ambient capabilities. However, some tracks lack his wonderful melodies which were also present in his World's edge cd. With all things considered, this is a must for fans of Roach. Let's hope he keeps making great songs like this!"
