"Gert Emmens has a distinctive take on the retro EM sound, and he continues that trend on A Boy’s World.
Melodic synths, bright sequencing, and a regal flourish typify his sound, as on "School’s Out." Lead synth lines have Emmens’ characteristic use of portamento, and there’s a cool sort of churning crashing percussion sound. Gert has always been a proponent of the long, slow-building Berlin school number, and he expands on that here, with two tracks in excess of 20 minutes, "Gaming Part 1" and "Gaming Part 2."
"Part 1" chugs right along, the pulsating sequences starting early and continuing unabated until just past 13:00, when a very spacey passage forms a bridge to another bit of sequencing to finish things off.
"Part 2" is mellower but follows a similar pattern. The disc finishes with a majestic tribute to Gert’s mother, "Nothing Lasts Forever.
Emmens fans will find plenty to like here."
