4 stars "As they came they slightly disappeared" was the first sign of life regarding the german newcomer band THE AMBER LIGHT. Released in 2002 the EP showed imposingly what there was yet to come: doleful and spherical art rock with influences by Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Talk Talk.

The title track As they came they slightly disappeared is an experimental, exclusively electronic sound collage which could make you think of experimantal germans like Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze. But yet the second song shows a completely different kind of style: Calling on the dogs connects a funky rythm section with nice rock grooves and a nice guitar solo, one of my favorite solos. Waves of memories begins with acoustic guitar and shows, besides many other songs, the mellow and melancholic side of the band. I really like the way the song changes after the first half. Curved Sphere is definitely one of my favorite songs in general. 13 minutes of melodic, Pink Floyd influenced retro prog. Not to forget the superb keyboard playing featured throughout the song. Louis Gabbiani is a great singer, he has such a great can cause goose bumps here and there, stunning.

A great EP. Regarding "Goodbye to Dusk Farewell to Dawn" you can say that THE AMBER LIGHT maintained the level they reached with this release. A promising band, highly recommended!
