But fear not, Cosmogramma is very good indeed... It seems Ellisons definition of a 'space opera' was Dense, multi-layered and subtly orchestral.
Following the 2008 release of "Los Angeles" some have lazily pigeonholed Californian producer Ellison into the post dub step camp, a loose and eclectic gathering at best, amongst other genres, but with Cosmogramma, its title inspired by a misheard exclamation from Ellison's late jazz multi-instrumentalist aunt Alice Coltrane, he conspires to make a mockery of almost all parallels.
This is such a shape shifting album, it is going to take some time to absorb because in constantly mutating just when you begin to pin it down, drawing everything around in before rearranging atoms before your very eyes, Cosmogramma proves itself time and time again as mind-meltingly boundless as a black hole.
