2 stars 'Komfort' offers much comfort for people who like to enter the dancefloor and want to break sweat. Very funky and sometimes triphop, even house bordering. Modern synthy/electronic elements are coupled with disco like alienated vocals and backed by groovy drums and bass which are responsible for an enormous drive. The high pressure drum work is remarkable but also something to argue about - is it hypnotic or only plain with intent? On the other hand the guitar appearance and some synthesizer output is refering to the psych/space origin by all means. All in all it sounds like the band experimented a lot to combine retro and modern elements to something new.

The title track is an example for that. Some spacey synth patterns, psychedelic guitars and samples are backed by drums with a simple techno/house beat. Ambivalent - it takes some rounds for getting used to. Light Up the Stars in contrast is a simple radio/disco-friendly track which cannot convince a prog fan. The contrary album opener Falling pleases me though. Basically an excellent combination of groovy and spacey elements more working in the vein of Korai rm or the old ColorStar sound. Great straightforward drums, with electronical help in the more floating middle section. Even the vocals are suitable here. The rest of the songs are basically house beat driven spiked with some psych and space elements. Only One More Slip differs because provided with diversified beats and the floating trippy song Fragrance which has a native touch.

'Komfort' is unusual - experimental and not always successful. Taking prog standards as the criterion they are passing the line here predominantly. First I was willing to condemn this one completely and it definetely took some time for me to get to the bottom of it and to filter the prog ingredients - 2.5 stars.
