Nerve Filter - Linear
Ambient, Techno Tom Shear, does that name ring a bell? Tom Shear is mostly known as Assemblage 23. But I'm actually talking Nerve Filter which is a side project to Assemblage 23. Nerve Filter has been growing for over 10 years and you may wonder why it has taken so long for an album to be released. Simple answer, A23 became so popular that Mr. Shear didn't have time to develop Nerve Filter as much as he wanted.

I have to say that Nerve Filter is far from A23 since it's more based upon drum n' base, ambient and techno. What's my opinion about this record then? Well, I think it's pretty good, the music is not an infernal experiment of sounds, it's well balanced and the tempo is increasing and decreasing in a comfortable way.

The first track named "Stelath" is really good and I can't say that I'm disappointed in the rest of the music either. I think Nerve Filter is perfect for the musical explorer and I can really recommend 'Linear' as a record.
