Many musicians that are active in the field of retro electronic music or Berlin School produce (ultra) long tracks of music which (most of the time) of course is no problem. There are also musicians who like to tell the same story but in a shorter period of time.
The Spaniard John Lakveet is such a storyteller. Try to compare this with progressive rock where bands in the eighties wanted to bring the same message as before but now without the long-stretched solos on guitars and keyboards. Together with his fellow countryman Dom F. Scab, Lakveet is a master of the short story. Also, he is a master of the sequence. He already proved this on his previous 3 albums on the Groove label.
"The Force Of Reason" again opens with superb sequences in "Leibniz And Contingency". It is not all sequences on the album: on "Copleston Aperture" and the brilliant "Checkmate To B. Russell" John shows his skills in the field of ambient. In the last track he moves from ambient to a great sequence.
And there is more: "Descartes, The Lance Argument" with its driving and pumping sequences and the epic "Nihil-Buster". Yes, John creates a long track after all, one of more than 24 minutes. It opens with experimental soundscapes, than comes a kind of an eighties feeling in case of rhythm, Mellotron flutes, more soundscapes and ending with parts that could be uses as film music. This piece shows another side of John and it is a fascinating side.
With "The Force Of Reason" the master of the sequence also shows he is a master of ambiences. Where would this lead him further?
