Review by Progbear
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Frankly, I wasn't expecting much from this late-period Novalis disc, but I was pleasantly surprised. As you can tell from the above track listing, they had pretty much entirely migrated to the short-song format by this time. What you can't tell, though, is that roughly half the songs are instrumentals.

The vocal highlights include Detlef Job's folky "Herbstwind" and two haunting Mühlböck-sung ballads: "Als kleiner Junge" and "Begegnungen". The latter is made striking by the use of harmonica, a first (and, I believe, last) for Novalis. The other vocal tunes ("Ich hab' noch nicht gelernt zu lieben" and "Magie einer Nacht") aren't worth much, and point to the band's rather dismaying future.

The balance of the album, however, is entirely instrumental, and spotlights Rahn's keyboard work in a delightful way. He's not quite as "on" as he was on FLOSSENENGEL, but his rich and textural style suits these little bagatelles well. File under: better than it has any right to be.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This review is of course very emotional.

As I have said, I will never be able to listen to a ''Novalis'' album (or ''Grobschnitt'', or ''Jane'' or ''Birth Control'' only to name of few) without thinking of my friend Febus who sadly passed away a few days ago.

Of course, this album is not as good as their great early days ones. Even Antoine (Febus) who was a huge fan decided to stop reviewing them after ''Vielleicht Bist Du Ein Clown''. Since I started my reviewing process with another philosophy, I will review some more of their works even if we all know that the best is of course behind.

I know therefore that my friend won't be upset while reading these lines in the prog Walhalla.

The best of this album is the good instrumental opener ''Danmark''. I have always appreciated their instrumental passages; I am rather reluctant in terms of German vocals and the ones from ''Ich Hab' Noch Nicht Gelernt Zu Lieben'' are just confirming this aversion.

The popish orientation that could be felt in some previous works is accentuated here. It is not because ''Cassandra'' is an instrumental piece of music, that it is per se a good one. Not bad, but the poignant moments of their debut for instance is totally alien to such a track.

The whole boredom of the band can be felt during ''Herbstwind'': a totally uninspired and unemotional song. The cherry on the cake is of course these painful German lyrics. Ouch! But the band quickly opted for these as soon as their second album, and they were quite successful in their home country, so.

The good news about ''Augenblicke'' (one moment), is that lots of tracks are instrumental ones, like the tranquil ''Mit Den Zugvögeln''. Somewhat repetitive but featuring fine keyboards. As a guitar counterpart, ''Sphinx'' is rather pleasant. A fine melody, a nice execution but again, I would have liked some more passion in here. Still, it is another pleasant song.

Actually, most of the songs featured here are OK. Even if ''Als Kleiner Junge'' has a weak start, it features a very catchy guitar solo during the middle part, which saves it dramatically. It is very emotional and only adds to my sadness tonight. When I listen to ''Begegnungen'' I am overwhelmed my emotion and a deep, deep sadness. I am speechless by now.

This album is average. Five out of ten. I will still upgrade it to three stars for the reasons you can imagine.

I closed my review for ''Sommerabend'' with these words: ''I dedicate this review to my friend Febus: hold on my friend. There is light after the tunnel''. I wrote it on November 29th. Antoine passed away three days later.

Unfortunately for Antoine, the light was turned off but he will always be a light for me. Repose en paix mon ami.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog-Folk Team
4 stars Whereas early NOVALIS albums contained longer tracks of which few were entirely instrumental, in the 80s they streamlined their approach to almost exclusively shorter tracks, of which approximately half were lyric free. The sound was still loosely progressive but many prog fans might find it a bit too accessible. Fred Mühlböck remains front row center on the vocal tracks and shows remarkable versatility. Here he instigates fewer heavy handed moments than on "Flossenengel", but also doesn't hit the mellow peaks of the predecessor.

Nothing from any part of the band's prolific past prepares one for the opener, the fluid instrumental "Danmark", simply the most breathtaking and spine-tingling tune in their entire discography. It appears to include a German synthesized wind instrument called a variophone played by Mühlböck. The timbre is like a cross between a synth and a sax. But the ecstatic crescendos of the melody overwhelm me. I could have wished for more than the three and a half minutes proffered, but perhaps short and sweet perfection is highest art.

Of course, little else can measure up, except for "Herbstwind", a magnificent folk-influenced song with more delicate instrumentation. It reminds me of British Isles groups like LOUDEST WHISPER or PERERIN, it's that good, but I suppose fellow Germans OUGENWEIDE or HOELDERLIN may have planted the seed.

The remainder is a melange of good and average in approximately equal proportion. Instrumentally, "Mit Den Zugvögeln" is a romantic piano and string laden piece that builds itself up quite well, even if it sounds a bit pre-YANNI ish. It leads into the languid CAMEL and BJH -inspired "Sphinx". Mühlböck excels in two further ballads, "Als kleiner Junge" and the epilog "Begegnungen" (with more lovely variophone I believe).

NOVALIS in 1980 can still deliver on their original romantic vision, but, whereas their early work seemed disappointing for its style, this album sets the bar high for early 80s pop prog, in a way also achieved by ANYONE'S DAUGHTER's work of the same period. It's a rounding up augenblicke.

3 stars Novalis' seventh record "Augenblicke" from 1980 gives the listener some nice tunes and musical landscapes but it marks an obvious decline in the group's music that was still extravagant and symphonic on the record before. The musicians are the same as before: Hartwig Biereichel on drums, Detle ... (read more)
