Fantastic electronic music; 2 very long and one shorter piece, reminiscent of some of the better Schulze work in the 1970s.
a posté un commentaire sur Tangerine Dream - Sony Center (Topping Out Ceremony Score). 4 months ago
This EP is a mixture of TD (rhythmic) music in this era, but presented in a less energetic and more soothing version. There are additional linking sections with a distinct feel of a classical movie score. Interesting, but not excellent.

This is a fantastic collection of live sets. All are excellent; the Paul Nagle concert is a highlight in his already prolific output.

This is a great electronic music/progressive rock concert, with pulsing sequencers, sound effects and electric guitar overlays, kind of a mixture between late 70s TD and Heldon. Radio Massacre International live is a powerhouse, and this is extremely ... Voir l'avis en entier

Many ingredients of the typical Schulze style, including, rhythm, some effects and especially solo's. However, the cello contributions from Wolfgang Tiepold give this album a special flavour.
a posté un commentaire sur Namlook* - Namlook XXI: Subconscious Worlds. 10 months ago
I agree with the other reviews that this is a truely great Namlook album. My favorite is "Living the Dream", with great use of voice samples and a slowly pulsing chord/rhythm basis. The diversity of Namlook's work continues to impress me.

Magnificent return of 'ramp: dark moods with strong sequences underneath
a posté un commentaire sur Pegasus (6) - Electro-Physics. about 1 year ago
Heavily inspired by Kraftwerk, both in sounds and in chord progressions. However, the songs are of high quality and the album has enough of an own identity to offer a very pleasent listening experience.

The electronics and sounds are good, but the use of programmed hyperactive drumrolls distracts and disturbs.
a posté un commentaire sur Thaneco - Psychic Images. over 2 years ago
Very different from his later work. With synths, but also vocals and conventional instruments. Different but absolutely fascinating; reminiscent of some of the 70s psych and progressives.

Excellent music, in the TD 80's vein, but at the same time with distinct original and personal touches. A great listen!

This is an absolutely stunning live set from RMI and features two of my favourite tracks of this band
a posté un commentaire sur Andreas Akwara - Raum. over 3 years ago
This album uses sounds reminiscent of Jean-Michel Jarre's Oxygene; also the cover is an echo of the first Jarre album. The music, however, is very different. No true melodies or solo's, definitely no classic song structures. Rather, the titles are ... Voir l'avis en entier

This is a great return for Age. I was blown away by their debut Landscapes long long time ago. Their subsequent releases did not display the unique freshness of 'landscapes'. I attended the concert which was a bit overwhelmingly loud and therefore lacked ... Voir l'avis en entier

This seems a Mark Shreeve solo effort. While building on the Redshift legacy of sequencer-driven pieces with vivid solo and melody lines, some of the tracks have the dark menacing power of Shreeve's older solo efforts "Assassin" and especially "Legion". ... Voir l'avis en entier

Great ambient soundscape/drone textures, with an industrial feel. No rhythms, and certainly no melodies, but a great listen if you want to make / feel up to making the effort.

The best of the "Con-struct" works to date!

This is a spectacular CD in the great Tantric Celebration series by Indra. Reminiscent at times of Picture music by Klaus Schulze, but highly original as most of Indra's work.

Excellent tribute to the Berlin School of Electronic Music; recommended if you like sequences and EM from end of the 1970s, early 1980s.

Heavily TD-soundtrack inspired set of short compositions. Reminiscent of TD's work in the era of Flashpoint, Firestarter etc.

Four remixes of ADSR; this is a bit monotonous to listen to as it is 4 times the same composition, and the versions are not strikingly different. Only for completists.

Progressive rock-synth with some dramatic twists. Sounds as though this is heavily influenced by Jarre Rendez-Vous era; also very reminiscent of Synergy's Games and Audion albums (which I think inspired Jarre for Rendez-Vous). Too intense to be easy ... Voir l'avis en entier

a posté un commentaire sur X-Static (4) - Software SystemCrash. over 7 years ago
Poor techno-remixes of some Software classics. The ever-present beats dominate the picture, and the melodic and sound-synthesis quality that is typical for Software is completely lost. A disappointing release to me.
