3 stars If truth be told, this is just about as far from prog as you'll find in the entire Archive. No instruments are played, no one sings, there are no tunes and each track is in the 10 minute + duration.

What we've got here is a highly experimental, abstract yet beautiful album revolving around the sound of running water. Massive electronic effects are used to such an extent that the finished item sounds like waves of odd keyboard chords.

An excellently clear recording, 'Seuchengebiete II' should be classed as ambient. Everything is saturated in echo and reverb making you feel like you're trapped 30 feet below a river with reeds wrapped around your ankles.

Some may find this torture. Others may find it very therapeutic. One way or another, there's no mistaking it's creator.

Hats off to a any guy who can put together an album of running water through old lead pipes, that's what I say.
