During the early 90s, as the new age phenomenon waned in popularity, more than a few progressive music aficionados were questioning what artists would emerge from this period of commercial decline and continue developing great new instrumental, just as a smaller group had before the new age movement. Thankfully, several have emerged–particularly in Europe–to carry on and further expand the great work began in the 70s by new masters such as Tangerine Dream, Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis. One of the most remarkable of these musicians is Dutchman Ron Boots. By the time Boots reached Detachment of Worldly Affairs, his fourth major studio album, he was in full stride creatively.

A variety of both driving and spacey compositions with a strong sound tablet make this one of Boots finest albums to date. Detachment is proof that Boots style had developed to a point that clearly elevated him beyond many “electronic” artists content to re-invent the 70s or simply put out a number of mediocre productions. Boots’ compositions often develop subtly but purposefully with a tapestry of sequences, rhythms, melody, and great programming. Detachment also contains another hallmark of great albums­excellent variety of composition.
The album opens with a powerful mix of rhythm and sound, the first part of the title track, but soon moves to a slower tempo reflective piece, “Cool Down.” The album also contains one of Boots’ best ambient pieces “Far Boundaries” which is somewhat enigmatic even after years of listening.

Boots must have thought so as well because he followed up the composition with a sequel the next year on his subsequent studio album.
