5 stars I absolutely give this release a five star treatment.

Why you might ask?

Well because progressive rock doesn't always require the drum, bass, vocal formula to make a musical statement.

Ammerland is a lush adventure both thru the emerald ponds, tall forest of the Black Forest cultured with the Mellotron flutes, strings robust choirs, Moogesque leads and romantic nylon strings guitars.

From the start of listening to this release you will hear that romantic era Genesis flavor ala the best instrumentals passages of Wiind & Wuthering. Its a journey of the more contemplative side of progressive rock that at least for this reviewer made the experience all the more satisfying.

Ammerland is not your standard fair of progressive rock in fact I would call this a cross pollination of classical, electronica ala ambient music tho used diligently and some of the grandiose melodic bits of progressive rock.

The music is eloquently stated and the interplay of the guitar and keyboards is not over the top but rather as though two painters who could relate ideas upon an aural canvas converging for the final masterwork.

I am glad to see it was re-released just recently as I believe it to be not only a crucial release in progressive rocks vast catalog but a recording that had heart, soul and without the expected pomposity.
