To hear a collection of sounds that make your cells want to move rhythmically is a joyous feeling. It's a feeling of freedom and excitement, and one that comes through clearly when I listen to "Janus". Following "Janus" are the VHS laser synths and vocal stabs of "Golden Inferno". There's something intrinsically tribal about Neptune's music. No matter how rough the individual claps or synths sound, the whole beat feels organic, even cosmic. It's exciting to feel the ethos of funk music come through a style that tends to feel more robotic than human.
Lance Neptune is sending out vibrations all over Animal Eclipse. That it's his debut means nothing really. L. Neptune has probably shone before and he'll probably shine in the future. After all, an eclipse is not a one-time event.
An eclipse creates a syzygy, which occurs when there's a straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies (namely the sun, earth, and moon). Perhaps L. Neptune has created a syzygy out of house, funk, and ambient music. If so, this syzygy should always be remembered as a pristine example of fusion music.
