Astounding all original beauty Martin Reuter – Martin Reuter
Dick Metcalf, editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews May 6, 2019
Astounding all original beauty Martin Reuter – MARTIN REUTER: This is my first listen to Martin’s astounding all original music… I can tell you (with certainty) that it won’t be the last… tunes like the opener, “Halibut“, really highlight his uniqueness… I just love the bass line that drives the tune, and he’s managed to incorporate percussion and synth work that demands open ears… I (most STRONGLY) recommend that you listen to this with headphones on, at least for the first sitting.
Martin has some videos posted, so be sure and SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel – I did… in fact, he tells me that there will be a recent LIVE video posted there soon, which will be woven back into this review as soon as I see it.
He was exposed to musical world early-on, at around age 8, in his hometown of Clervaux, Luxembourg… he moved to NYC (by himself) at age 19 and began to hone his craft… you will hear on tunes like the percussion-filled “Fun“, that he really got it RIGHT!
This release is actually about EP length, with the longest cut on the album (4:48) being “Feio“… beautiful swirls on synth guide the tune, and there are “spooky” electro voices woven in and speaking to the listener most intriguingly… I wouldn’t be surprised (at all) to see this splendid song recommended for awards – and WINNING. I can hardly wait for his first full-length release.
I had no difficulty choosing my personal favorite… the 2:56 “Soft” is totally mesmerizing, and will give your ears (& your heart) the thrill of your life… I have NO doubt that this composition will be receiving MAJOR airplay on stations (of all types) around the globe… sheer beauty!
I give Martin a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of a (perfect) 5.00… meaning he also gets my “PICK” for “most intriguing album”. Get more information about this fascinating creator at Martin’s website.
