Album Review: 'Riding the Thermals' by Nicholas Gunn
Many veteran readers of this blog are aware of the love for trance music, but considering this blog is almost 8 years old, you may have missed the love for many other genres of music. Understanding origins within music is just as important as the music itself. In fact, many recognize the classical and ambient undertones within trance music. The evolution of the genre needs to be examined for trance music to continue its niche intrigue.
Ambient music tends to get a bad reputation or just written off as "relaxing" music for your elevator rides or to fall asleep. However, how is any of this BAD? Music does NOT need to be revered so complicated that you can NOT enjoy the intricacy of those who produce this music. Nicholas Gunn has been in the music business for quite some time, and has a great musical background that spans from rock, to ambient, to trance as explained on a recent episode of Trending Topics with BB Podcast.
'Riding The Thermals' is a brilliant ambient album from top to bottom. In fact, many tracks are being remixed and remastered for the trance audience. From experience, it is suggested you listen to the album WITHOUT skipping a track to get the full effect of the album. The incorporation of vocals marry well with the nature undertones and delightful relaxing "theater of the mind". The album is OFFICIALLY available on your favorite platform of choice, so please support the brilliance of Nicholas Gunn at your earliest convenience.
