Red Ankh is still plugging away at revising their old albums for rerelease, but some thing came over them and they jumped back from the on-deck Green album to UNIVERSE, the instrumental, many-genre-blending album from two thousand five, the one written between This is Our New Age and Bronze. UNIVERSE is comprised of four long pieces that progress through organic styles of music, with a hard core/gabber alternate version of a refrain section thrown in for good measure! The first track of this album, A Little Bit of Every Thing, is the second fifteen minute plus track to be written under the Red Ankh name, the first being Made Zon from their second album, MASTER SYNTH. A Little Bit of Every Thing is twenty-six minutes and twenty-seven seconds long, which also means that it beats out both A Change of (Speechless) Reasons and Bittersweet in length, making it the longest Red Ankh song to date!
More than any thing else, A Change of (Speechless) Reasons, released as a single track in 2010, was inspired by UNIVERSE. As such, UNIVERSE and A Change of (Speechless) Reasons are together the most diverse Red Ankh releases to have been released so far, though where the former borrows from electronic genres as IDM, drum ‘n’ bass, and trance, UNIVERSE downplays its use of synths to leave more room to explore classical, jazz, and an assortment of folk genres.
