review...
YouTube referencing "The Massing Of The Shades" - One of the darker, deeper moments on Kevin's final album. Not to be confused with the same named cartoonist (although this Kevin is an artist too) Kevin 's cassette-ography is a huge testament to a single vision, a self-made style in which (unlike most popular synth artists) he didn't just mimic his mentors, but expressed his own emotions...
