4 stars With members permanently coming in and going out, ZONE SIX still exist as a rather loose project, since more than one and a half decade in the meanwhile. Multi-instrumentalist Dave Schmidt aka Sula Bassana and Martin Schorn aka Modulfix (synthesizer) are to name as the constants over the course, where Sula handles ... eh ... what is needed just at time, simple as that! For this recordings he also has bassist Komet Lulu at his side as always in the recent past, and Rainer Neef, a talented guitarist for sure, temporarily borrowed from The Pancakes.

Properly matching a vinyl length four songs are given, the concentrated result of some inspired jamming sessions, quite easily to imagine. While the band is on a relaxed expedition basically the Modulfix synths do appear rather modest, or restrained if you will. Only second track The Insight marks the exception from the rule somehow. So this is Rainer's show here more or less, which sometimes reminds me of Vibravoid's Christian Koch, for example Acidic is provided with a nice groove but also a very acid guitar style as the song title promises.

Can't name another genre musician who is that busy. Sula seems to act without any pause, be it at the fore or in the background. This always on a high level, which means you basically can't fail when purchasing an album he's involved with. And so headed by an empathic electric guitar 'Love Monster' offers proper space rock improvisations again, a recommendation in any case. This songs appeal even slightly better to me as the definitely prolific Electric Moon output, probably due to the more relaxed flow overall.
