5 stars NEUSCHWANSTEIN (the name is derived from King Ludwig II his castle in the Bavarian Alps) is an acclaimed German one-shot-band that made one outstanding, GENESIS inspired album ('78) entitled "Battlement". In the early Eighties I bought this LP during a 'prog rock pilgrimage' in the famous music store "Saturn" in Cologne (Germany), also the city where the album was recorded. The seven very melodic and harmonic compositions on the original LP feature a warm sound, pleasant shifting moods, some sensational breaks and lush keyboards (piano, string-ensemble, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes electric piano, synthesizers and organ), beautiful flute, sensitive electric guitar, twanging acoustic guitar, a decent rhythm-section and good English vocals (including a charming German accent). The Musea CD-release (from '92) contains a splendid bonus track entitled "Midsummer Day" (strong acoustic rhythm-guitar and great synthesizer play). A must for any serious '70-'77' GENESIS fan!
