The New Ikarian CD by James Allin (also of Visionaire and Century Sleeper), finds itself at home in a dark, brooding atmosphere, laced with heavier passages that surge through the undercurrents of confusion. At times this CD finds itself quite comfortable being heavy and other times is content to trod along slowly and despairingly. Feelings of confusion and loneliness intermingle with surreal and abstract themes all designed to create a mood that listeners can enjoy for those rainy nights when something feels amiss. What was left to to uncover? How did the night endure within it's pain? Over 63 minutes worth of music will unfold throughout these 12 portals that is the Phantom Minds.
