THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS (2003)
ďAn electronic Christmas album?Ē Many people would ask this question with a look of disbelief and shock on their faces. For most, synthesizers do not immediately bring up thoughts of snowy nights, cozy fires, and holiday cheer. Images of robots and futuristic sci-fi worlds are more common, and, for various and sundry dark reasons, Christmas isnít usually celebrated in those sci-fi worlds. Read full review...

LEGACY VOL. 2: THE TICK TOCK TREASURY (2003)
Deeply experimental and provokingly melodious, the second volume in the Legacy series brings us a fairy tale loosely told by a collection of songs that remind us of the value and importance of time. Review coming soon!

Legacy Vol. 1: The White Songbook - Click to view!
THE ART AND CRAFT OF POPULAR MUSIC (2002)
Throughout the past decade, Ronnie Martin has amazed and dazzled throngs with a legacy called Joy Electric. From the first note of 1994's Melody to the final buzz of the recent Starcadia EP, the electro-synth-dance-pop anthems of Joy Electric have tickled the ears of curious listeners and delighted thousands who share an appreciation of true musical art. This collection is a synopsis of this drama: a 2-disc collection of jE's legacy in its entirety. Half "Greatest Hits" album, half previously unreleased material, The Art and Craft... contains a little something for everyone. Read full review...

STARCADIA EP (2002)
If you couldn't tell from my review of Love Liberty Disco, disco music has never really appealed to me, especially when the Newsboys are doing it. In this case, however, I have to make an exception. Taking a break from being knee-deep in the Legacy series, Ronnie Martin found time to crank out Starcadia, a stylish EP of 70ís influenced synthesizer music. And thankfully, the liner notes are absent of any pictures that might have been taken of him wearing a leisure suit and fake afro. In short, it's disco done right. Read full review...

LEGACY VOL. ONE: THE WHITE SONGBOOK (2001)
Rarely does an artist release an album which is, in essence, a musical book designed to relay a story to its listeners. In doing so, the songwriter transposes himself as an author, and in turn, his musical creation becomes a work of literature. Yet, Ronnie Martin has done just that, penning a story of inner joy and tears, of outer success and failure. It is The White Songbook. Read full review...

THE LAND OF MISFITS EP (1998)
Focusing on remixes, The Land of Misfits EP rolled along not too long after the release of jE's highly acclaimed Robot Rock album. Although plain in design -- the CD itself has nothing but the title printed on it, and the photography on the album is actually stills from the "Monosynth" music video -- The Land of Misfits carries its own weight, as far as EP's go. The remixes are rather pleasant, and the previously unreleased "The North Sea" is more than enough reason to buy the CD. Any true Joy Electric enthusiast will want to add this gem of an EP to their collection. Read full review...
