Unimother 27 is a solo project by multi instrumentalist Piero Ranalli. On this CD he is assisted by a mystery drummer named Mr Fist. Frozen information his the first album by this project since 2008.

I would pretty much place this album in the Psych/Space Rock category, even though Prog and Fusion fans should also find a lot to enjoy here. Reviewing the previous album (Crin), my colleague MichelF wrote "This music is also not for the faint hearted or the commercially inclined ones." Well listening to Frozen Information  I can't say I get the same kind of vibe. Sure this CD offers some intense and sometimes experimental music, but on the most part I would qualify the record as melodic and very pleasant to listen to.

The album begins with "Moksha" featuring a very beautiful oriental sounding keaboard intro, but quickly some Frippian guitar kicks in, followed by the rest of the instruments that gives a hint of a bluesy feeling to the second part of the track. "Dancing tought" follows and brings us pretty much in a 80's King Crimson territory. "The oblivion's cage" is clearly more psychedelic but "Clear light healing" brings back the Frippian guitar and oriental keyboards. Starting with "For mad stray dogs only" the album gradually shifts more into the Psych/Space Rock genre,  but this is not an abrupt change, the last three tracks remaining in tune with the first part of the album.

Frozen Information by Unimother 27 is a classy, well composed and performed album that should really appeal to all fans of Psych/Space/Prog rock music. Those into bands like King Crimson, late 80's or early 90's Porcupine Tree and Hawkwind (to name a few) should really check this album out.

Personally I'm not the number one fan of this musical genre, but I'm pretty much hooked on this record. Very cool music indeed.
