Very nice and underrated album, which is a bridge between prog rock and cosmic electronic. Still a nice listen after 4 decades.

Great album by Roedelius & Kasar, with a hint of George Winston.

Probably the best Sequentia Legenda album to date. Reminiscent of some of the best Klaus Schulze works from the mid-'70s.

Absolutely magnificent collection of "leftover and forgotten tracks". Disc 1 with music from 2006-2008 is a great one in the well-known Emmens/Heij vein of electronic music, with sequenced rhythms and Gert Emmens' recognisable synth solo playing. Disc... See full review

These songs show an Andy Pickford in great shape: beautiful melodies, strong rhythm and sequence basis and beautifully arranged to impressive climaxes. Andy Pickford always delivers top quality EM, be it melodic or ambient, but this has rapidly become... See full review

A masterpiece, way ahead of its time back in 1973. The B-side (back in the days of vinyl releases) is ambient music avant-la-lettre, with magnificent soundscapes and drone-sounds. It was 5 years later when Brian Eno coined the term "ambient music"... See full review

A great collection of serene ambient pieces from different albums by Cousin Silas. A veil of bliss and soothing calm emanates from the 21 compositions, which is available as "Pay what you want" from Bandcamp. All ambient and soundins simple, but so... See full review

A great long track from The Soviet Space Dog Project; some hints of 1970s Klaus Schulze in sequences and solo's. Recommended for any one into the more cosmic blend of Berlin School.

This album is built on sounds and sequences obtained with modular synths. It is a far deviation from the Tangerine Dream-inspired albums under the name of Arcane in the early 2000s. The music and constructs are intriguing and surprising; very nice... See full review

A truely fantastic live set by the Nightcrawlers. Top work in the best Berlin School tradition; reminiscent of some of the best classic Tangerine Dream.

Tangerine Dream - Sony Center (Topping Out Ceremony Score)
posted a comment on Tangerine Dream - Sony Center (Topping Out Ceremony Score). over 3 years 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 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... See full review
Klaus Schulze - Live@Klangart CD2

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.

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.

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.

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.
