Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
3 stars 3.5 stars really!!

I am not always sure groups should reform some twenty or thirty years later. Some are reforming just for a tour and are in for the fun and generally out to give the fun to the fans also. Where things are getting slippery is when they feel obliged to write a studio album and they are unable to catch the greatness of their heydays, unfortunately unable/afraid to write stuff as they were younger. So generally, I am wary and avoid common rock bands 's returns.

Nothing of the sort here: Agitation Free's latest release is quite fine (although it does not match the heights of their first two albums) and quite worthy of them. Most of the core members are in in fine form and many guest provide the world-music instruments. All of the tracks are of very good standard , maybe not of the impossibly high adventurous type of the early 70's, but manage to resemble what a fan might hope for such an album: honest , worthy and artisticly sound.

Most tracks will remind you of the good old days but without any nostalgic feelings that might alter your judgment. The downpoint might be the didgeridoo brak on the first tracks that seems to be uncalled for but is soon forgotten. The adding of a sax player (he obviously is very influenced by Supertramp's Helliwell) gives Lutjens and Ullbrich some space to breathe. Recommended to any Agit Free fan but do not expect Malesch-calibre stuff even though there are winks/hints of it.

3 stars Nice return to form for these legends.

If someone asked me to briefly describe the sound of "River of Return" I might say it reminds me of the mellower side of Djam Karet mixed with a shot of Meddle-era Floyd. Or I could go with the note on the back of the CD which says to "file under psychedelic ambient pop." Either way, the album is a space rock fan's delight. It reminds me very much of Djam's "Ascension" album though perhaps a bit less weird and with the nice addition of saxophone.

The title track begins with 2 ½ minutes of a chord picked out on acoustic with some light sax creeping in, before the band arrives. The next 6 minutes deliver a mid tempo rhythm with occasional pleasant guitar or sax solos before the acoustic from the beginning returns. "2 part 2" is a spacey hodge-podge of synths, bass, assorted noises to a straight up drum beat. Half way through they tear into a sweet electric guitar solo that stretches to the end of the song-great! "Fame's Mood" is an excuse for a nice bluesy little solo. Next up is the 10 minute "Susie Sells Seashells at the Seashore" and with that title it better deliver, right? Well it's quite different from the "normal" songs we've heard so far, this is pure experimental ambient noisescapes, way weird, way out there. Over the constant sound of waves rolling in, you have various strange keyboard samples rising like an Eno album with other bizarre parts making occasional entrances. Nice stuff, especially for the psychedelic warriors out there. "The Obscure Carousel" takes a lazy pace with some nice sparring between guitar and sax, nothing mind blowing but it's nice. "Nomads" is a highlight, beginning with hand percussion and very slowly adding a distant bubbly bass, acoustic rhythm guitars and some tortured electric soloing. Later the acoustics will solo a bit but the way the track builds so nicely is the story here. "Das Kleine" begins with folksy strumming and acoustic slide sounding a bit like an old acid jug band. They trade off on some rippin acoustic jams that would get Garcia and Grisman all hot and bothered. Yet they never lose the pretty melody holding it together. Nice. Last is the 13 minute mini-epic I suppose, "177 Spectacular Sunrises," which like Susie above shifts back to ambient drift and wide open canvas for spacey noodlings. This one is more minimalist than and not as interesting to me as Susie though it works. The bonus track "Keep On" is a rather unmemorable "straight" sounding pop-rock throwaway. A few nice guitar licks but really adds nothing after the long space piece.

So we have a very nice updating of the Agitation Free sound, they maintain their traditions but add a modern sound and quality production. It's not an essential album but it will please space rock fans I think. I especially feel that fans of Djam Karet should not miss this album. Plenty of medium gear rock with good guitar work and pleasant melodies married to the ambient meditative half. 3 ½ stars.

Latest members reviews

2 stars The reformation of Agitation Free saw two albums. This is the first of these two albums and by far the best one. Gone is the wild guitar solos from the first incarnation of Agitation Free. In comes a lot more laidback approach to Krautrock/Space rock than before. The music is much more based o ... (read more)
