2 stars Robin Taylor is a prog multi-instrumentalist from Copenhagen. He is out there for a while already (born in 1956), but his first album he recorded only in 1991, at a respectable age of 35. Well, some things just need time to arrive to their taste. His instrumental album "Soundwall" sounds just like that: one shouldn't expect a real freshness here. A little static, not really rocky or groovy, but well composed and thoroughly played. Or, with other words, ripe to be plucked: it wouldn't get better anyway.

The everlasting Taylor's collaborator, jazz saxophone player Karsten Vogel (Burnin Red Ivanhoe, Secret Oyster) produces a few first-rate solo's, and the guitar of the guest with a metal rock background, Michael Denner (Mercyful Fate, King Diamond) sounds cautious but enjoyable.

All together, this record is at least reasonable to good, not a highflyer, but nice for the variation.
