Review of DDeep in Time by Piglets DDeep Forest

Updated: Jan 30


As a native English speaker, there's always something I find fascinating about the language I've always called my own. When traveling around Europe, you get this fascinating look at how other people choose to take on your language. Whether you're in Estonia, Germany, Finland, or Romania, you will eventually see people who want to speak to you in your native language. This clearly is a problem when you want to learn their language, but the wide use of English can be a big help to you when you're trapped in an airport or lost in a mall.

This clearly is a problem when you want to learn their language, but the wide use of English can be a big help to you when you're trapped in an airport or lost in a mall. 


That's the part I find so love about Piglets DDeep Forest. Originally from Poland, Piglets but as I move through their melodies and band information I can understand that English may be a second or third language for our performers. Luckily, I believe it adds to the charm as I listen to DDeep In Time. European rockers often have no problem doing entire albums in English regardless of where they might be from. I think it makes them very fun to listen to.


For instance, at the very beginning of the album, the Intro track helps you get to find yourself in "dark space" before moving on to Nuclear Start Up and More Nuclear FuelMore Nuclear Fuel is the starlet's time to talk about how she's "so tired" and desperately "needs some energy" and "needs more fuel". It's bizarre when she starts talking about needing "plutonium" and "uranium", how good they are, and calling out the atomic numbers of the most radioactive of elements on the Periodic Table on a track with a bit of a Weezer feel. 


The whole record goes on like this. On I Need Moderator she asks to be "slowed down in neutral" and needing "heavy water." I understand what she means, but would never have considered putting it that way, and I appreciate the interesting ways language is used here. My Energy Transformation is all about a "superheated sphere" and My Journey Into Space is another song about the Universe played out over cool psychedelic sounds. It becomes easy to vibe all the way through the tracks as you hear them.



I think that's the part I like the most. When English is a later language you've picked up, you can use it more directly. If you want to make a record all about the feelings and the passion that science gives you, you don't have a reason to pretend to be smart so much as being who you already are. That's what's so fun about Piglets Ddeep Forest. They decided to make an album in English called Ddeep in Time: Space and that's exactly what they did. 


The full album is covered with an interesting psychedelic but 90's sound. Piglets Ddeep Forest has taken 20 years away from their last musical adventure and decided to reach back out to the rest of the world with Adam "Multi" Paluch and his educated partner, Monika Paluch-Ferszt making a record about science. That is literally what this album is about... Science! It's like if Bill Nye the Science Guy and Weird Al Yankovic decided to link up and make music about space and time. You'd learn about nuclear power, superheated spheres, and the Universe and have it spilled into you in connective ways.

 

That is how I like my science. I love it wellplayed and completely understandable. This record is literal Space Rock... so touch a piece of it as it rotates past you.
