about

Cornubia is an epic, tender, spiritually uplifting album.
Some luminaries of the eMusic scene hailed it as one of the greatest albums of its type ever made. And such hyperbole is totally understandable.
No more words needed. Just listen. (Graham Getty)

'Cornubia' is an electronic album that owes more to Tavener. Elgar and Robert John Godfrey than to the likes of Tangerine Dream. This is a very mature album that shows that Michael has really grown since his previous release Trust" (which was also rather good). 'Cornubia' is inspired by John Miller's magnificent painting of the same name and "Cornwall's spiritual beauty". All of the pieces of music have an air of majesty that is often associated with modern English composers. Of all the tracks. "Land Of The Saints" stands out, it's simply quite Stunning, very powerful stuff. The "orchestration" is understated with no twiddly bits but it is just right, the lone colours enhance the music without becoming pre-eminent. I must single out the bass "string" sound used on "land Of The Saints", definitely a wow. A great album, buy it if you like good modern music. (Tim Cockram - Cross Rhythms)

Synthesist Michael Neil has made in this work a kind of space electronic music which turns out to be very emotional. This release is inspired by the John Miller's painting and the spiritual beauty of Cornwall (UK). The album is an impressive symphony of beautiful melodies and magical atmospheres. All pieces are a magnificent sample of electronic music of a high degree. In the most perfect cosmic vein, it will delight the lovers of this kind of music.
Ethereal, gliding sounds, spectacular, soft melodies, envelop one by one all the themes of the album. Neil, like all experienced creators, has a good grasp of the media. If the audience pays an adequate attention, don't wonder if you feel the entire starry universe open up before your eyes. (Jorge Munnshe - Groove Unlimited)
