3 stars Shortly after the release of their second album 'Different Sun' ELECTRIC EYE had the opportunity to celebrate a live gig at Blå, an independent club situated somewhere in Oslo. Six songs were included here in their repertory at the minimum. Maybe they have played even more, but this exactly has been issued via Jansen Plateproduksjon on vinyl, cassette tape, and for a common digital download.

The presented songs are equally adopted from both studio albums, though, not unusual, mixed up on this occasion. This is first and foremost dedicated to those folks, who could not be there at Blå, for what reason ever - yeah, of course! Part One initiates something wonderfully ambient, gloomy, transcendent, developing into a strong Pink Floyd vibe at some appropriate time.

With 6 AM all engines are running at full capacity and drive yet. Man, what a lively bass, what a dramaturgy! As is right and proper for a live gig, the songs are evolving like a permanent suite. Vocals are rare, more intended as sprechgesang. The catchy All Of This Has Happened Before And Will Happen Again surely appears as a highlight here. This song attracted my attention already when exploring their current studio album. The live version is even better imho.

This is melodic psychedelic/space prog overall, featuring restrained organ/synth collaboration. Solely Mercury Rise partially moves into a rock'n'roll territory somehow. Obviously dedicated to bring the attendant crowd on the move. And this will stay during the powerful and dramatic Tangerine furthermore, until finally the band is reaping some deserved applause from a confident audience - 3.5 stars.
