This upbeat collection reveals a new side of Davol. Delving into new artistic areas, he occasionally combines spoken word in foreign tongues with his electronic tapestries. For example, the piece ‘Just Like You’ demonstrates an interesting melange of electronic pop with spoken word in Chinese and English provided by the sultry voice of his friend Meiji. The reliable and uplifting pop-influenced electronic grooves we’ve come to expect from Davol are aplenty, in such pieces as ‘Say It’, ‘Human’ (dedicated to a friend he recently lost to cancer), and ‘Lucky Day’. ‘Ride’ takes us on a percolating electronic journey that will not disappoint. And not forgetting his roots, ‘Necessity of Love’ is a new age staple, cinematic at times, in a style reminiscent of Vangelis. It may take many years of patience between albums, but it’s good to see Davol return and provide us with A Day Like No Other.

When I bought this album several years ago, it immediatly became one of my favorite album’s. I found out about Davol on a program called “Currents”, and there was no question that I had some catching up to do, not only with this album but with his two previous releases. One of my favorite tunes from Davol is on this album, called “Gates of Ishtar”. It is just absolutely magical and inspiring. Davol covers musical territory that no one else has come close to matching.
