3 stars Fuchs is a personal project of the German composer and multi- instrumentalist Hans-Juergen Fuchs. In fact, he personally participated in the creation of avant-garde rock for a long time, helped his wife to set up a new avant-garde band named Ines in the early 90s, the style was close to IQ, Pendragon, Tony Banks's keyboard effect was obvious, the wife's band A total of four albums have been released, and I am still thinking of Erik Norlander. Returning to himself, he has been committed to the creation of musicals for many years, mostly designed for school performances. In 2012, for the first time, he published his first professional "Leaving Home" in the name of Fuchs, the concept is the story of his grandparents, involving the Nazis. The second is "The Unity Of Two," in 2014. The concept is the many layers of the human soul. Musically speaking, in addition to the influence of the new avant-garde, there is the feeling of Camel and PF (in terms of instrumental performance and atmosphere). Most of the songs have a folk tone, gentle and psychedelic, and sound more pleasing (no harsh, of course not) What heavy metal) is also popular, so it can be said that it lacks some real avant-gardeness and uniqueness. This year's new album called "Station Songs" has three 10-minute epics. From the cover and song titles, the concept seems to be related to the subway station. The opening epic The Invisible Man is atmospheric and very nice, but German English needs to adapt, and it seems that listening to the lack of some real highlights and touch the soul moment. The keyboard at the beginning of the second song Even If The Salary's Low is very good. The expressions of multiple synthesizers evoke the classic symphony orchestras of the 70s. In the end, there are some strings and it is a better song. The third solo, So Many Days/The Great Divide/Under Suburban Skies, is lackluster. The title of the fourth short song, "Crowded Boats on Silent Sea", I think is a good expression of the psychological picture of human groups in the subway operation. The fifth Why Me? is popular. The sixth epic How Could I Just Ignore Him?/The Night And The Dark And The Pain had a typical folk opening, the middle saxophone still had some flavor, and the atmosphere was somewhat close to pf. The seventh I'm On My Way Again is still a folk orientation, but I can't accept German English. The eighth Sleepwalking Man is more dynamic and the final keyboard is still bright. The last Will Come What May seems to be a remake of the previous one - most of the album's songs are a template: folk songs, pop vocals, keyboard solo. Overall, this is a record that sounds pleasing to the ears. However, in the area where the cross is shaken, everyone appears to be in the crowd, and the overall Samsung rating is half.
