Prog Reviewer
4 stars A very strong Zeuhl release

WEIDORJE is a great Zeuhl incarnation akin to bands like ESKATON and EIDER STELLAIRE put together by ex-MAGMA members featuring heavy organ and dominant pummeling bass and some serious groove. Bernard Paganott's bass work is a particular highlight on this album, very driving and commanding more so than a lot of Zeuhl I have heard, the drums aren't actually very interesting or technical at all but the bass takes a lot of the pressure off them. The instrumentation overall is actually quite jazzy which is refreshing due largely in part to the Guillard's on trumpet and sax coming to the fore melodically most of the time (although this does push the guitar back a bit and the organ isn't as heavy and dominant as I would like - instrumentation is everything in Zeuhl).

Opening song Elohim's voyage is the best song on the longest and best song on the album with a very ominous opening before kicking into a bassy groove before ending up in lighter territory with some great work by the vocalists (who sing non lyrically), a great piece of Zeuhl music. Booldemug is a great upbeat faster paced song with some of the best bass work on the album, it's remarkably progressive too, venturing through many different motifs before ending triumphantly.

WEIDORJE contains a lot of great moments and is a very worthwhile addition to any Zeuhl fan's music collection.
