After 10 albums and seven EPs, it's no surprise that the recent works of Joy Electric show a maturing of Ronnie Martin's skills in songwriting and production, along with his abilities as a musician. Martin is a veteran of the music scene, and Joy Electric has grown up.
Like all but the earliest Joy Electric albums, this recording was performed by Martin exclusively on old-school analogue synthesizers -- no computer samples, drum machines or guitars here -- and what can you say? The man knows his way around a Moog, and Martin continues to create new and interesting sounds with his machines. The Otherly Opus sounds both rich and deep, without ever feeling too crowded and Martin's vocals are bold and varied, with interesting harmonies throughout.
Lyrically, Joy Electric albums have always shown a penchant for fairy tales, but The Otherly Opus seems to move past that-or, rather, before that-into the days of legend and even the events that preceded them. Many of the songs seem to deal with transitions on both personal and global levels ("Write Your Last Paragraph," "The Ushering in of the Magical Era"), and "The Memory of Alpha" is even a retelling of humanity's Fall in the Garden. The Otherly Opus suggests a sense of a faraway place that time swept away long ago and a rediscovery of what was lost.
