riessue review...
a classic and deeply atmospheric album with lots of unusual touches, more abstract than the Lightwave it resembles with influences as diverse as from Tangerine Dream ZEIT through to Conrad Schnitzler or Asmus Tietchens.

press review...
"Arachnoid Staircase" and "Timedust" are standout tracks on Dislodged Resonance, with Pink Floyd styled keys, Tangerine Dreamy swirls, and pulsating wind-tunnel drones that make for a tripped out race through the cosmos. Martin and Collins excel at developing space, sound, and atmosphere as the music traverses down its winding cosmic path. "Potassium Bible" and "Silence Shockwave" are darker ambient droning pieces. "Potassium Bible" includes slowly developing ambient space and drones that are embellished by various scattered sounds. The combination makes the music simultaneously dreamy and stark. A surrealistic world that reminds me of a spaced out alien Cabinet of Dr Caligari soundtrack. "Silence Shockwave" is like an industrial factory world under the sea. Eerie aquatic space drones and lots of sound experimentation make for a dark but intriguing journey. And "Vascular Storm" is probably my favorite track, and one that Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel fans will drool over. Swirling and droning meditative synths create a floating multi-textured atmosphere that is accompanied by continually rising and falling whistling space lines and pulsating organ tones. The ultimate in Kosmiche!!!
