Reviews about PTX - Color Your Ears (1):
Windbearer
This album follows the typical Israeli psy sound; full on and pumping. What it lacks it subtlety and depth, it makes up for with sheer brute force, pummeling listeners for a solid 60 minutes, letting up only for the final track, "Alufa", a melodic piece quality of electro-house. A good mix of "light" and "dark" melodies, "Color Your Ears" is a good release both for fans of a more euphoric sound, as well as those who prefer twisted melodies and scarier themes. In fact, a lot of the tracks start happy and melodic and descend into madness, or vice versa. Like fellow Israelites Xerox & Illumination, PTX seems to lack direction at certain points, discarding melodies altogether and replacing them with an entirely new element, only to bring back the original sound two minutes later. As a result, the music can become incoherent, which can be irritating, but also keeps things entirely interesting. PTX is not short of a melody either. Whether it's typical trancey arpeggios, screeching guitar (actually used well, believe it or not), or dark, bubbling acid, each track has sound that really envelops and sticks with you. Blade (PTX Remix)" is the best example of this, employing the extremely catchy melody originally conceived by New Order for their track "Confusion", but translated here into a squelchy acid line instead. However, as mentioned earlier the hook drops in and out just a bit too often, and seems to lose the impact that it could otherwise have had. Less "catchy" tracks on the album are also highly entertaining as well, using more complex melodies and sounds, such as "Off The Record", mixing light and dark sounds and employing a memorable bass line and interesting vocal sample to devastating effect. This is perhaps the most impressive track found on the release. At times, besides a lack of coherency in the tracks, the melodies can also tend to be a little convoluted, with 3-4 different sounds competing for attention, and detracting from the tune overall. Complexity is admirable, but not when it detracts from the music. In this case, less would be more. However, at times when less noise is present, this record's excellent mastering shines through. Engineered by the very talented and seemingly omnipresent Ido Ophir, PTX's fat bass lines and clean, driving percussion are displayed brilliantly, improving the listening experience markedly. The percussion is one of the more enjoyable aspects of the album, with clear, raspy hats injecting plenty of rhythm into every track, and sharp clappers often providing energy at the start of a new phrase. The bottom line: this is a brilliant release that misses the mark slightly at a few points but really deserves a lot of praise. Each track is well considered, well produced and makes clever usage of effects, some of which are rare or never thought of before. However, it's not a mould shattering piece of work. Pumping bass lines, trippy vocal samples and euphoric melodies - Israel has been doing this for many, many years. If you're looking for something different and ground breaking, look elsewhere. However, if you just want to sit down and rock your socks off, this is a good place to start.
