Such a slide in a night that will be shaken by dreams to random divinations, Into the Dream brings us in a soft musical universe with hesitating bass chords, encircled by fine arpeggios ready to fly in a night of thousand torments. Those who, like me, tasted the summary work will find the soft poetic lines of Entering the Dream with the hesitating approach of the sleepiness dance. A rhythm constantly held by a synth with spectral breezes and a keyboard with keys situated between an acoustic guitar and a harpsichord with limpid and plunked notes. Percussions fall, without ever smashing anything. A little as not to disturb the sleep tranquility, while the synth dresses its most beautiful dreamy approaches, before touching us deeply with this melody buried since a long time in the lightness of the sleep that introduces this long night of dreams. Mirage attacks the night with more vigor. A long track with progressive rhythms, locked into a sphere of nocturnal schizophrenia. This version is more ethereal and poetic than the one on the special edition, freeing a suave perfume of soft night-owl madness. Lost Forces (Velocity) follows the rhythmic tangent which develops since Into the Dream. Very similar to Mirage, the pace is however more frenzied and pulses nervously in a ghostly universe, shaped by a subtle line of bass with eerie pulsations and a synth with nightmarish waves. Luna (Lunascape) calms things down with a magnificent sequential spiral which swirls lasciviously, creating an effect of hypnosis, under a synth filled by a horde of strata as intriguing as lyrical and where the rhythm beats slightly, as an ode to the moon and its secrets. Distant xylophone arpeggios from out of nowhere introduce The Fields of Infinity which hiccups under rolling percussions. Percussions became metallic and slamming which follow the sequential xylophone approach that fade out with the arrival of an acoustic guitar with fine harmonious notes. Spellbound that we are, we hardly noticed this adorable fusion of chords to a divinely charming synth which oscillates slowly behind this harmonious duality to plunges towards a frantic finale where we regret bitterly the short length of The Fields of Infinity.
