4 stars Wow, someone must have put something under them! I must say after a brace of rather lackluster albums, this came as quite a surprise. Rahn's keyboard work is among his best ever, particularly his Hammond organ, which is quite edgy, cutting through the mix in a big way. Even Biereichel rises to the occasion, with some of his finest drumming ever. But then, he's given more to work with here than he has for a while, as on the spirited 3/4 time on "Walzer für einen verlorenen Traum".

I'm guessing that since the concept, the appreciation and conservation of nature, was a subject close to the band members' hearts as they truly rose to the occasion this time round. No Hardenberg interpretations this time round, but he's there in spirit.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars It is of course impossible for me to review a ''Novalis'' album without thinking deeply about my friend Febus. He stopped his reviews from the band after their previous studio album. Because he thought that the best of one of his beloved bands was behind them. And he was of course right.

There are still some songs of value included here, like the very good opener which really flirts with the good moments of the band. My favourite track included here is the very much Floydian ''Im Netz''. If it would have been a fully instrumental, I would have been even more happy. The few sung parts are dramatically poor. But fortunately, there are very scarce. The mood seriously reminds me of DSOTM. Yes, it is that good!

The German lyrics and weird vocals are kind of ruining this feeling straight after: the title track is just a grotesque track with no savour. Same applies to the heavy-rock ''Sklavenzoo'' which features extremely poor German vocals.

Here and there, some track does shine like the short and symphonic instrumental ''Walzer.''. It seems that the band decided to head towards a heavier angle with this album. Some sort of AOR with ''Alle Wollen Leben''. Somewhat unexpected, to tell you the truth.press next of course.

In all, this album is not bad, but I can't be really enthusiast about it. Too many weak songs to make this record a good one. ''Rückkehr'' for instance holds some delicate passages (even vocals are passable), and the melody is quite enjoyable. If only some more songs of this calibre would have been featured...

You were right my friend. But so were you often. Two stars.

3 stars It is largely true that the most popular German prog bands of the 70s remained steadfast to their roots and vision right through the decade. One could argue cynically that they were popular with this style, so why change it, and, if punk and new wave were known to these groups, which they must have been, this did not represent an either/or situation. Prog bands could continue to ply their trade and share the spotlight with the upstarts. ELOY and NOVALIS demonstrated this, and the scene was accommodating enough to allow ANYONE's DAUGHTER to release their first album in 1979.

Notably, NOVALIS' entry at the end of the decade seems to have been a concept work about nature and its woes thanks to man, and how they could reconcile. The lovely cover of a cetacean tail beckons us within, and the album remits many delights. The contrasts between light and heavy are more pronounced than on the prior "Clown", and the group does not handle the rawer tunes as well. But "Im Netz" is a striking spacey ballad with a killer hook, and the title track is an enchanting ballad that could have crossed over to the charts. The best of the upbeat numbers is the instrumental "Walzer für einen verlorenen Traum", which shows that NOVALIS can still enrapture with mellifluous delights. If "Sklavenzoo", "Alle wollen leben", and "Ob Tier, ob Mensch, ob Baum" are shoddy rockers that show the group is losing touch with some of the intricacies of the last album, the melodically profound "Rückkehr " implies that their mellow touch is perhaps stronger than ever.

While "Flossenengel" is not as consistently enduring as "Clown", it closes the decade on a high note, with the group apparently healthier than many of its compatriots. Allow yourself to be touched by this "fluid angel".

4 stars From a German point of view - one of the best German-speaking German bands of the 70s/80s. Romatic lyrics, own or based on classic German poetry.
