3 stars When you're keen on extended yet predominantly inspired jam sessions which are deriving from a more eclectic playground, yeah, then you certainly are on the challenging side of life here. TANGLE EDGE are a trio from Norway, constituted in the early 1980s. I'm not sure if they are still active anymore nowadays. I mean in the sense of developing new stuff and trying to schedule gigs. Anyway, since 2020 Ronald Nygĺrd, Hasse Horrigmoe and Kjell Oluf Johansen are re-arranging their widespread discography. Which in most cases is leading into digital re-releases. This is an exception anyhow, because also distributed as double vinyl via Space Rock Recordings.

'Cispirius' showcases a compilation of tracks originally recorded in the last half of the 1990s, and they are partially re-mixed. Accompanied by the lively opener Cańcalam the album basically consists of one extended suite entitled Beyond The Hills Of Inhibition, more than 50 minutes playing time, devided in four parts. While having all the time in the world available you're free to plunge into this stuff, to leave everything behind for some time. Virtuoso and varied instrumental playing guaranteed. Acoustic guitars as well as nice percussion work included. Jazzy and groovy sections are alternating with psychedelic, space and ambient behaviour. 3.5 stars. This is definitely worth a listen, if you like bands with an extreme improvisational approach.
