It’s actually an amazingly varied body of work, if you like the sound of a synthesizer then there will be something for you contained with this records ten tracks. From the opening ‘April’s Legacy’, a sweeping electronic epic that sets the tone for an album just as occupied with conveying emotion through music as it is with making you dance. The mood lightens immediately as we get into the album proper, lifted by the tropical flavours of Chains Of Love, although this track does retain an underlying melancholy. all that is blown away, though, by the first of two collaborations with Cavaliers Of Fun’s Ricco Vitali who helps Shelby get the party started on ‘Wild Youth’. From their the LP slides through different genres and moods from the deep groove of ‘Voce D Amore’ to the atmospheric soundscapes of ‘The Dream Is Always The Same’ and ‘La Nena’ stopping by the upbeat SynthPop of the first single, ‘Echoes, Dimensions & Waves’. After keeping the energy up with the storming title track the album closes on a couple of cinematic pieces, ‘Back To Bollebygd’ and ‘Soracci’, leaving you suitably released from the big room tunes. Whatever you’re looking for, whether Jarre-esque synth compositions and something to fill your Nu-Disco dancefloor, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find it within ’The Music Is On His Side’ .
