3 stars Full of great big fat Moog electronic keyboards from the late 60's, sounding pretty beefy and splodgy.

The last track 'Riversong', sounds astonishingly like parts of Robert Rich's 'Bestiary' album from 2003. In fact much of this album sounds incredibly like 'Aphex Twin' or a softer 'Autechre' - give or take a few bloops and bleeps.

Two minutes into 'Aurora' and I thought I was listening to the electronic parts of ' Apocalypse Now'. Obviously a highly influential album. If not, musicians were ripping this off, left right and centre.

The tunes are pretty straight forward, but are immediately catchy and completely electronic. It was recorded by two fluffy grey haired guys named Margouleff & Malcolm Cecil whom I've never heard of before... and probably never will again...

Suffice to say that this is one very unusual album for it's time, complete with early Moog experimentation and is of historical importance to anyone inclined to electronic music.

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
