3 stars The SECRET SAUCER is on the way again - there's no mistaking. Spheric synthesizer waves suitable for a sci-fi movie are controlling the first song of their new album 'Tri-Angle Waves'. This studio project is consisting of members from several US space rock acts who meet from time to time. Usually it takes about two years for the next session. They jam together just for fun to record songs for a new album during a weekend or so - seemingly not being pressurised by nothing and no one.

Now this might be the reason for a special relaxation which you will find when listening to the tracks. A Sublime Metaphor is a good example appearing laid-back trippy with accentuated piano and drum playing - obviously Quarkspace tinged I would say. The melancholic wailing guitar gets under the skin really. This sounds flawless and reflects their mutual sense.

The same for the sixteen minute lasting Protoplasmic Accelerator - provided with more pressure basically. Again soaring guitars are playing a dominant role but a powerful bass comes to the fore too as well as playful organ here and there - well done really! Light Years Away - faded out by the way - and Mind Mechanics are played with much tension where the latter is reaching the albums culminating point when coming to the end.

They do it the easy way - it all nicely flows and meanders - six tracks where two of them are totally synthesizer dominated. You immediately can feel the cumulative competence which shows them far away from aimless noodling. 'Tri-Angle Waves' is charming in any case - a recommendable space rock album - 3.5 stars.
