4 stars A very good accessible electronica album from the 80s ! In par with Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and Synergy works. Very relaxing and enigmatic. A synthetic journey into crystal caves...

The german duo use sequenced generated loops, cosmic sounds, flute and electric guitar to create evolving magic landscapes. I think in particular of Sunny-ROM-Rise and Moonly- Twigs which are exemplary pieces of trippy psychedelic soundscapes, with keyboards and C64-like impressions. The album ends majestically with Fencing-Clouds, a floating tune reminiscent of Pink Floyd and Kraftwerk's Radio-Activity which lets the listener in the sky.

As one of the best release from Software, Phancyful Fire should appeal fans of electronic progressive, in particular Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze addicts !

4 stars Phancyful Fire is the sophomore album by Peter Mergener and Michael Weisser before they decided to adopt the name Software for the name of their musical collaboration. The previous album, Beam-Scape, was a letdown. Fortunately, this album is far better and foreshadows their best work that would be created on Electric Universe Part I and Chip- Meditation Part I, and is much closer to the sound of Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream than the new-age music that Software previously made. Gone are the cheesy echo-electro percussion beats and slow uneventful progressions. This album features spacey textures made from soaring synthesizers, sequences of percussive galactic noises, and dreamy (and occasionally darkened) drones. I could compare this music to a more tame and accessible version of Timewind by Schluze, because of the "mental space journey" effect that this album can have.

Phancyful Fire is one of the better releases by Software, and combined with Electric Universe Part I, Chip Meditation Part I, and Syn-Code make up the essential Software. But, really, I'd only recommend Software's music to people who have run out of better progressive electronic to listen to. I found this album enjoyable, but it isn't actually necessary, though it is a decent listen (especially for drifting into sleep).
