4 stars Another brilliant album from this obscure artist who's ratings are surprisingly high in the P.A. It's just a pity so few folk have heard of him.

The opener 'Ergon' sounds like that bit in 'The Ten Commandments' where the Red Sea is split in two by Charlton Heston from where he scarpers to safety. Full of reverbed female vocals that are enough to give you the heebie-jeebies.

Talking of reverb - there's a lot more of it in 'Mineral - Vegetal - Animal' with wailing male and female singing reminiscent of the monolith scene in 'Space Odyssey'. Sorry about the film comparisons, but they ARE accurate!

This ain't no cheapo first outing recorded onto a home cassette. It's well recorded and sounds BIG! The array of instrumentation is fantastic and there isn't a dull moment - it's far too intense for that.

There are very few pop or rock instruments utilised. From what I hear it's all orchestral drums, electronic whines and drones, treated classical instruments and hugely echoed vocals. Most of 'Logos' sounds like it belongs in a British 'Hammer' horror film.

Towards the end you get quite a lot of mid section Floyd 'Saucerful of Secrets' and 'Ummagumma'

Almost five stars marred somewhat by the one use of electric guitar near the finish.

I just wish I'd discovered this years ago. Great album.

Dobermensch | 4/5 |
