Review by octopus-4
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR RIO/Avant/Zeuhl Team
3 stars I'm not a fan of this band that I find sometimes unusefully noisy and almost boring, specially in their first albums, but this is a pleasant exception.

"In C" is the minimalistic masterpiece of that genius known as Terry Riley. It's a sort of contemporary classic piece based on a single chord (a C major) that can be played "ad libitum" by a number of instruments decided by the director whose characteristic is to play that chord with a delay between one instrument and another. Told in this way it may appear crazy, but I suggest listening to the original (or to one of the originals as the various interpretations of the piece can be considered all originals). Said so, the major difference between the AMT version and the one released by Riley is in the use of some "psychedelic" sounds in addition to the standard instruments.

Then we have two additional pieces based on the same idea: "In E" that's a bit more chaotic and discordant, in one word: spacey, and "In D" that deserves some more words.

As "In C" this is a major chord, but it's played continuously and the result is an hypnotic mantra on which harmonics and very little variations are the only things which change during the about 20 minutes of the piece.

The whole album catches the right spirit of the Riley's composition and adds, if you listen carefully enough, a little touch of darkness coming from the band's psychedelic background that's more evident on the two non-Riley's pieces.

Not for all the tastes. I suggest this album to fans of the pink period of Tangerine Dream, and of Krautrock in general. I rate it 3 stars as it doesn't add a lot to an idea that was original at the beginning of the 60s and because it's not for "any" prog collection, but I want to remark that it's a very good album of a band that I usually don't like and the only reason why I'm not giving it 4 stars is that it doesn't fit in the PA definition mentioned above.
