- Ghost in the Machine is the latest release from Earthshine and with each collection of songs, Peter Cox; the ever so talented Dutch multiinstrumentalist, just gets better and better.
- In my view this first offering, is the single best piece of work Earthshine have created thus so far, it morphs from Jarre to David Wright and then towards the end, with the slight but very relevant percussion, shifts towards fellow Dutch EM performer Frank Pells in performance. The balance of the composition and the arrangement is simply perfect and creates a superb sense of ambience that one could literally feel like one was about to enter a realm, an old haunted mansion of great mystery and fear.
- This album is a four piece collection of long form compositions, the keyboards feature in a delightful and very artistic way on the second song called Reverse IN going forward. Cox has manifested a really clever piece here with the use of the keyboard strings to create an aged sound throughout the composition and a somewhat careful piano performing the role of narrator in the early stages.
- The start of this track is sublime; most electronic fans on listening to it will be in rapture. This reminds me of some of the deeper and darker tracks of both Kevin Kendle and Geigertek, both masters of this genre. Cox has built something quite brilliant here, and one can almost see the Ghost in the Machine!
