PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Beam-Scape is the debut album by Michael Weisser and Peter Mergener, made before they officially adopted the group name Software. This album consists of Software's typical '80s influenced progressive new-age electronic. The tracks move very slowly, and progress in the same way: beginning drone, then asequence of arpeggios on keyboard, then a melody played on top with another keyboard, all in the presence of dreamy space sounds throughout. Like most of Software's later albums, this album features the new-age echo percussion, but it is only occasional (mostly present on "Timber-Wave-Reflections"). Something that I don't know of Software using on any other album is saxophone, which was a neat surprise, though it isn't really important and doesn't make the music much better ("Double-Binded-Sax"). The most energetic track on this album and the only one that follows a different progression than the other tracks, "Power-of-Independence", sounds like White Eagle- era Tangerine Dream stricken by laziness.

All in all, this isn't a great album. Though this is better than most of the music that Software would release later in their career, they've still released better material than this.
