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 album ... 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.

Fantastic electronic music; 2 very long and one shorter piece, reminiscent of some of the better Schulze work in the 1970s.
posted a comment on Tangerine Dream - Sony Center (Topping Out Ceremony Score). about 1 year 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.

posted a comment on Radio Massacre International - Lost In Transit 9: The Gatherings 2010. about 1 year ago
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

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.
posted a comment on Namlook* - Namlook XXI: Subconscious Worlds. about 1 year 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.

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.
posted a comment on Thaneco - Psychic Images. over 4 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!

posted a comment on Andreas Akwara - Raum. over 5 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 ... See full review

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 ... See full review

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". ... See full review

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.

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.
