Prog Reviewer
3 stars Gustav Meyrink's "The Angel From The West Window" is the second TANGERINE DREAM Eastgate's Sonic Poems Series release. The musical direction is the same than on "The Island of the Fay". Altough not as adventurous as its predecessors, this opus is more homogeneous in terms of ambiance and quality. Furthermore, Hoshiko Yamane still does some incursions with her electric violon, however less important. 6 tracks have been composed by Edgar Froese, the 3 other tracks by Thorsten Quaeschning.

The compositions are mostly similar in style: a combination of aerial, peaceful, smooth ard warm passages with typical dreamy TANGERINE DREAM synth sequences. Some moments can be reminiscent of the Schmoelling-era. The sound is quite modern. Not truely innovative but very pleasant, "The Angel From The West Window" confirm the inspiration comeback of german duo. Pretty nice music for relaxation.

Modrigue | 3/5 |
