Scenic’s 1996 full-length release is now reissued on CD after being out of print since 1999. With Acquatica, Scenic draws from numerous influences to create a 60-plus-minute instrumental soundtrack for a voyage through inner space landscapes—a sprawling adventure into another world.  Core members Bruce Licher (ex-Savage Republic), James Brenner (ex-Shiva Burlesque), Brock Wirtz and Robert Loveless (ex-Savage Republic and 17 Pygmies) are joined in the studio by both of their contemporary auxiliary live rhythm guitarists, Doug Smith and Brandon Capps (formerly with Independent Project Records band Half String), along with several other guests who add Chamberlin (a mellotron-like instrument) and horns. As on their previous album, periodic breaks in the proceedings function as interludes during which the listener can catch his or her breath and prepare for the remainder of the journey to come.  “Acquatica is a hypnotic collection of widescreen instrumentals that shimmer like deserts at sunset, suggesting a collage of Ennio Morricone’s twangscapes and My Bloody Valentine’s swirling noise textures.” —Guitar Player “Scenic use lush orchestration to enrich their vision of the desert as a raw, vivid place, creating music that leaves the vocals and guitar solos behind but possesses a spiritual immediacy that is rock ’n’ roll to the core.” —Rolling Stone
