The Lost Pieces
by Darren Bergstein, Muze

Ephemera from the Roach canon. These tracks, spanning the years 1988 to 1992, offer glimpses into the various phases of Roach's muse, some of which ended up on compilations, some just moments in time suspended forever in the confines of an unmarked mastertape box. What these pieces lack in continuity they more than make up for in spirit. Remnants of the era of DREAMTIME RETURN ("After the Dream") and more documents from the primordial soundpool ("Full Moon Prophecy," the live "Three Reptiles Wait at the Opening of the Underworld") inform a good part of this collection, but there's also works of errant beauty as well, including the poignant "Since We Are Away," and the serene melancholy drones that end the album, "Closer." Like most prolific musicians, Roach no doubt has vast amounts of stuff still awaiting formal audio birthright hopefully this compilation won't be the last of its kind.

A great collection of "lost" pieces that came shortly after the completion of a project, or from multi-artist samplers between 1988 and 1992. Steve's various styles from that time are presented here in a way that flows effortlessly from one space to the next. Another good introduction to Steve's music.
