“On Top” is the fifth Philippe Petit & Friends LP, it was originally thought to become the third part in a trilogy originated by Strings Of Consciousness. When the SOC collective broke up Philippe kept inviting his friends, musicians and singers. The ones he felt were “On Top“. On the first track Philippe, Eugene S. Robinson and Hervé Vincenti give us a tense and at times tender narrative, It plays out like like an old radio drama except it’s urgent and you feel somehow locked in.
On top of the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacàn comes last on the album, it lives up to it’s title, The holy city of Teotihuacan (‘the place where the gods were created’) it is close to Mexico City and was built between the 1st and 7th centuries A.D.
In the track time seems to slow to a crawl, it feels like a “peak ” moment, all clear and beautiful but like any peak it get’s uncomfortable at times. While not without its harsh moments, ultimately this is a gorgeous, intimate and emotive album.
