About the album “We Want To Rock”
“We Want To Rock” is a 10-track album. With it, Dominic R Daniels offers an original and experimental fusion of electronic perspectives. The takes are cut and dry, with no hesitation about the sentiment they are conveying. They present the underlying waves the likes that would accompany a retro video game. At times , these get layered with adequately-timed soulful and rythmic variants, e.g. in the track “We Want To Rock”. Most times, the dance/club textures shine, particularly in the track “Eternity”. There are definite infusions of trance here and there. These are probably more notable in the track “Revive my Heart”.
There is a aprticularly interesting aspect in the overall album. In spite of its solidely woven club-oriented sonic production, it still manages to clearly convey a spiritual thread throughout. The choice of instrumentation and arrangement on a track such as “For the Angels That Weep” possibly make this latent dimension more obvious. The irony of the title is not lost either. However, it may only try to convey a simple, unquestionable fact: no one on the dance floor is going to stand still hearing this sound, whether it is physically or pshychically.
