SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Eureka is a personal project of German musician Frank Bossert, born in 1967 in Hamburg.While relocated in Husum, Bossert started up the Eureka engine during the 90's and released a first low-budget self-titled album in 1997.A second one followed five years later, this time with a more professional sound.Entitled ''The Full Circle'', the album features appearances by female singer/flutist Claudia Sokollek, bassist/guitarist Stephan Bork, percussionist Ralph Schmedeke and keyboardist Nico Fintzen, while Bossert is responsible for the compositions as well as plenty of guitar and bass parts of the album.

''The full circle'' seems like a lost Celtic/Folk Rock album of the MIKE OLDFIELD discography, while singer Claudia Sokollek is succesfully compared to KATE BUSH.This is a beautiful work of Celtic tunes meeting electric soundscapes with Bossert offering short vocal and instrumental arrangements of a dreamy yet pretty grandiose atmosphere, where New Age, Rock and Folk blend together in an ethereal mix.Additionally the album lacks any drum parts, instead Bossert chose to fill the sound with timpani and percussions, thus creating an even more folky atmosphere.At moments the album recalls also DAB AR BRAZ works, great flute tunes, acoustic interludes (with some lovely mandolin themes) and background synths of a Celtic flavor meet Bossert's melodic guitar stylings with some beautiful solos delivered.Another reason to purchase the album is Claudia Sokollek, who's voice is pure magic, a sensitive, warm and ultra-crystalline color all the way.

A beautiful release along the lines of MIKE OLDFIELD and DAN AR BRAZ, where the Celtic world reaches the brilliancy of electric music.Not the greatest work for fans of complex music but a fantastic one for lovers of cinematic, folky OLDFIELD-ian soundscapes.Recommended.
