Even by the usual standards of rock musicians, Ran Jurgenson has an interesting CV. Living in Israel, his initials forays into music centred around the national metal scene and now he has a full-time career in making music videos and commercials. Somehow he has found time to deliver a first solo album. 'In Time' is a dark, epic album which sounds expensive and cinematic as great keyboard washes swoop in and out of the mix. Perhaps in keeping with his past, Jurgenson seems like an anguished soul, straining against the leash as he spits out lyrics revealing inner turmoil. The sound varies between delicate fairytale music and vast gothic textures. It's often quite compelling as on the subtly romantic electro-pop touches on 'Break The Ice'. Less effective are deviations into Linkin Park territory and a love of prog. Ultimately, it's a record more out of time than "in time" but Jurgenson's conviction is unflinching and admirable.
