      The album CROSSWORDS (58'05") by Dom F. Scab is for
      anyone interested in instrumental music that is more focused
      than all-out smooth spacemusic yet a bit more cerebral than
      prog-rock. This album delivers seven tracks which reference
      majestic moments in classic works by Vangelis and the calming
      sounds of repetition circa Tangerine Dream's early "Blue" years.
      While Scab builds his music with these touchstones, the
      arrangement, execution and vision is completely his own. The
      music on CROSSWORDS is in constant motion, stopping,
      starting and shifting at the will of a dexterous composer. Scab's
      tone patterns are energetic and cycle through many engaging
      variations. His sequencer can run full-tilt, producing
      heart-pounding syncopated rhythms, then dramatically slow
      down to a percolating, bubbling pace. The melodic content spins
      above and below the rhythm floor. Scab's wide open synth lead
      lines energize the brightening air, shifting tone wildly. There are
      also places where the mood becomes more settled, locating a
      less playful and more reverential space. Scab's greatest
      accomplishment is creating music that is engaging and
      listenable without being simplistic.
