3 stars LANVALL is actually the nickname of Austrian guitarist Arbne Stockhammer, now a member of ''Edenbridge''.Released in 1994 by Music Is Intelligence Label, ''Meloydian garden'' was his first of three solo albums.If you're moved by soft and dreamy symphonic rock,this album is a must-have.I would say that LANVALL combines the best of STEVE HACKETT and MIKE OLDFIELD in a fantastic ambient-like soundscape filled with strong melodies.There is also a slight FOCUS influence in the classical-influenced parts of the album,while some mellow solos might bring CAMEL to mind.The album contains also some great piano passages and grandiose yet distinctive background synthesizers,played by LANVALL as well,and a couple of amazing orchestral compositions based on piano and synths.An underrated mid-90's release by a talented musician,''Meloydian garden'' deserves your attention,especially if you're deep into melodic/atmospheric/soft symphonic prog.
