Human Engine is a beautiful collection of music featuring blissful sounds - the album showcases John's willingness to experiment with fresh ideas.

Constantly reinventing himself, John has embarked on a journey with this album, taking you from a cinematic dream world with touches of retro electronica. His renowned production quality is more than apparent in the wonderous sound scapes he weaves throughout this LP.

Human Engine is a testament to the beautiful music he's heard in such movies as Lost In Translation, Millions (John Murphy), and Eternal Sunshine oF the Spotless Mind (Jon Brion). This album is a personal introspective inspired by John's love of nostalgia, his love-life, and his ever growing connection with the human condition. Some of the album has a more familiar/recognizable electronic, soundtrack, and rock influence -- the opening and title piece "Brilliant Flood" is ambient, reminiscent of old Tangerine Dream or Brian Eno. Tracks such as "Millions of Moments" and "Heavier Than Love" (which feature Beltran's orchestral arrangements) are seemingly inspired by composers such as Craig Armstrong and Max Richter.

This album is an inspired work of art full of passionate and evocative moments that will open the eyes of devoted Beltran fans and will fascinate the ears of new listeners. Either way, the music and film world will bear witness to the depth of this unique composer/producer.
