3 stars The second album from the Australian artist Aron Scharfegger under the moniker Arnioe.

Arnioe is entirely a one man project with all instruments played by Aron Scharfegger himself. Once again, the music is variations over the theme "Pink Floyd"..... with some additions. The additions is a pretty electronica dominated soundscape at times and some strong leaning towards Roger Waters solo stuff.

The music Arnioe is bringing to the table on For I've Been There is pretty melodic, but not in the AOR sense of melodic. There are some Floydish avant-gardish elements here. But they are more as bridges between the medium long songs.

The quality factor is not particular high. I still think, as in my review of his debut album, Aron Scharfegger is making a mistake by doing everything himself. Another voice and not at least; another creative input would make a lot of difference. That and the lack of some great songs is my main gripe with this album. The good thing about the album is the good songs here. There is nothing here I really dislike and would point out is fatal flaws with this album. It is just that it could had been a better album.

This is a good effort and a good album from Aron Scharfegger. And that's all I can say, really.
