CD review PURE REASON REVOLUTION ‘Eupnea’

Pure Reason Revolution, that’s progressive music, inspired by the sound of Muse, Tool and genre icons Pink Floyd.

Jon Courteny and Chloë Alper started with Pure Reason Revolution in 2003 and it was an album called ‘The Dark Third’, being the debut that saw the light of day in 2006. Two more longplayer extended the musical journey of this passionate duo that reaches now a next level.

‘Eupnea’ is the newest release of the duo from the UK, a title that can’t be more relevant these days. Eupnea, that means “normal, good, unlabored breathing”, something we all looking for in these worrying days.

The album, and the music it contains, has the potential of slowing down things to take a deep breath with big soundscapes enriching songs like ‘Ghosts & Typhoons’. Peaceful calmness starts the song that transforms into a post-rock anthem along the way. It’s these outburst, in contrast with the soulful parts, that add tension to the mix. Each of the six songs on the album lives by this contrast of intensity, bringing good variation to the plate.

‘Eupnea’ is an album with a good flow. Although having some layers weaved into the different songs, melodies are always in forefront, which makes this longplayer to a sensitive, but also rocking one. ‘Eupnea’ helps to get to normal, good, unlabored breathing while still being excited.
