Notes

I was told by Marcus James Christian that this is a factory version of the first Chromaticus album and it's a collector's item. So, the later version might be a CDr.

I can remember when I first saw a Chromaticus CD.In 2002, I was looking up synthesizer music on eBay. One particular item mentioned guys like Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre along with one or two others and then it said "and now...". So, I clicked on the item. It was "CHROMATICUS - Album One: Introducticus." Back then, it had a little animation of a white CD case showing the CD. I listened to the highly compressed lo-fi samples ("Do I wanna get that?"). Then I considered... and reconsidered ("Well... for the cheap price, I think I'll bid on it!").After listening to the CD for the first time, I knew it was something I wanna add to my collection of Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre, Brian Eno, Synergy (Larry Fast) and other such stuff. Chromaticus tends to be something to give you a relaxed feeling. In fact, it was hailed as, "A dreamlike soundscape of soothing, healing, peaceful and calming tones unlike anything else in its genre!" I would agree to that. Anything wrong? Well... a few presets sounded like... How should I put it? I mean, I don't wanna be critical. It's actually nicely done. The samples helped me decide to get that Chromaticus CD.I could imagine this music could be used for Nature and Sci-Fi / Fantasy stuff, besides relaxation, meditation and all that. It even made me think of what tracks on this CD (as well as the other 2) would I use for music of MY Sci-Fi / Fantasy stories (Man, I don't know when I'm ready, but I hope I'll get on with THAT soon).Notice how all the names end in "icus." Here are my favorite tracks: "Entranceicus-Infiniticus," "Digiticus-Ificicus," "Illuminicus-Tunnelicus," "Octalicus-Hazithicus," "Redicus-Spherialicus," "Omnidigiticus-Duplicaticus," and "Majesticus-Ascentionicus." Listening to the whole album is a nice experience. If you like "Introducticus" then get Album Two: Geologicus and Album Three: Hydroicus to complete the trilogy. Each CD has a dozen tracks. So the three CDs would make it 36 tunes altogether, each one in two words with a dash in between and ending with "icus." Note that you might get the CD-Rs in slimline cases.What you've just read was something I've written back in 2006 (I made a few necessary changes when I've submitted this on Discogs). The albums are available as MP3 downloads on CD Baby, which you would have to pay for them. You could listen to them on YouTube (as you may notice by a list of videos on the right side). As of my writing on this part of the review, it looks like you can't get them on physical media.Here's something I didn't know until shortly before I first wrote this review: Chromaticus was done using Reason by Propellerhead Software. There's even a couple of tutorials on the Marcus Unlimited website (I don't think it's active anymore, unless I find out).
