Ronnie Martin’s antediluvian history concept record takes even the most familiar of Biblical tales and puts a newly poignant spin on them.
The Ministry of Archers feels like a throwback to past Joy Electric efforts like We Are The Music Makers and Five Stars For Failures.
While still a magnificent feast for the ears, every song on The Tick Tock Treasury reminds me of past Joy Electric albums.
The best way to sum up The White Songbook is as a consummation.
The album consists of lovely, hushed versions of Ronnie’s joyous pop songs.
Ronnie’s made a gutsy move on this one, pushing on with his own musical vision and remaining steadfast to his spiritual beliefs.
I’m somewhat torn on this release.
The innocence of Martin’s music has always been one of the main attractions that Joy Electric has had for me.
At the risk of sounding cheesy, Joy Electric’s music brings back a sort of wistfulness for more innocent, carefree days.
I would strongly recommend it to anyone who likes techno-dance-computer-music-video-game soundtrack-sounding music.
