Another excellent "chillgressive" album from Spain's Lab's Cloud. Raúl has released what I consider some of the best examples of this style that merges progressive psy-trance, ambient and downtempo, and Underwater Galaxy is another strong chapter in his evolving book. He blends traditional psy-trance beats and basslines with rich textures and melancholy melodies, sometimes downtempo and sometimes midtempo, but never too fast, and always with a nice persistent energy that keeps you engaged for the length of the typically long tracks. Albums like this - and similar ones from Akshan, another great artist in this style - are best listened start to finish, and although the trance moments can feel a little repetitive at times, it's more about letting yourself fall into a kind of hypnosis and letting yourself flow along with the music.
