David Brusie

Great album
I love this record. Every song has a different feel, and you can tell by the intricate arrangements that Simon has put a lot of work into each track. My personal favorite is \"Dynamite-Lightning-Attack!\".

Skamasutra

Excellent Stuff...
Combining elements of Japanese folk music and electronic music, Den Gen manages to blaze new ground and create a synthesis of Eastern and Western styles of composition. Every track pushes the envelope in what a composer can do with disparate styles of music, all the while retaining one of the most important aspects of recorded music; each track is extremely listenable. Without a doubt, this album transcends the rules that most composers feel the need to conform to. Simon Hutchinson is truly a unique voice in the musical landscape, whether that landscape be avant garde compositions, or electronic pop music.

I know this guy, and
this album is as awesome as he is. But to be more descriptive, let me first say that this kind of music isn't what I usually listen to, but I found myself hooked on many of the tracks that struck me as mesmerizing. I made a couple music videos for Simon (like one for Moog Monster), consequently spending a good deal of time listening to several of these pieces over and over in detail, and I was still entranced by tracks like One Bad Day and Hibernation, despite the severe risk of ultra-overplay. So although it's quite possible I'm doing Simon a favor by writing this review, the music speaks for itself; the variety and uniqueness of these works is likely unlike what music you've encountered before, and you might really like that or some of that.
