• Image of Beyond The Wizards Sleeve - The Soft Bounce

Trip. A simple arrangement of four letters that has many associations: a trip to the seaside, a drug trip, a sudden fall. "The Soft Bounce" is a trip album in the widest sense: containing nearly 45 minutes of carefully programmed music, it sets off into the unknown, it contains pleasure and pain, doubt and transcendence, and it ends somewhere that is different from where you started. Erol Alkan and Richard Norris have constructed a rock album in a cornucopia of styles that is both highly enjoyable and perceptual.
