Excellent sequencer music in typical 'Emmens' style.

Every time Dutchman Gert Emmens brings out a new cd, the listener is going to get some surprises. First of all, his music is about something: there is an idea behind it. Then there is the constantly present quality in his music. He is one of those rare musicians who have the capability to mix Berlin School sequences and moods with beautiful melodies. That Gert has a musical story to tell, could already be heard on his previous album, the concept-cd "The Tale of the Warlock".
"A Boy's World" also has a concept: the music is totally inspired by his 12-year old son Frank. In five pieces, Gert tells the story of his boy's life. The sixth track "Nothing Lasts Forever" is a homage to Gert's mother.
The music on "A Boy's World" is "typically" Emmens: so we hear great sequences, fine sounds, nice solos and innovative rhythms. The rhythms are getting a more prominent place in his music. This can be heard excellently in a track like "School's Out". Gaming, something children Frank's age are very well into, has a central position on the album.
The two longest compositions are "Gaming part 1: Battles are Won and Lost" and "Gaming part 2: The Quest". These tracks can be regarded as somewhat the best music Gert has ever created: epic, masterfully crafted, intriguing and with great melodies. And the first sequence "The Quest" is perhaps the finest he has put together until now.
Hats of to Gert Emmens (and his son Frank). This is truly a masterpiece.
