3 stars This is the second and last album from Quasar, however THE LORELI should be the third release from the band if we take into account the cassette-only release "Forgotten Dreams" from 1988. THE LORELI shows some huge improvements from the debut album FIRE IN THE SKY on terms of composition, after all, in more than 6 years band leader and songwriter Keith Turner had gained more experience and maturity, his compositions here are more focused and interesting like the song Power in your Hands and the title track. The production suffers from the same problems of the first album, however one must note the work of guitarist Toshi Tsuchiya: all the keyboard sounds come from his MIDI guitar and, aside the very dated 80's porduction, he did a great job.

Among the band members on this record are vocalist Tracy Hitchings and drummer Dave Wagstaffe who both would later show up in LANDMARQ along with guitarist Uwe D'Rose and keyboardist Steve Leigh, both of them by the way, ex-Quasar members who left before the recording of THE LORELI.

Prosciutto | 3/5 |
