Review by Bonnek
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal Team
2 stars Just like the preceding album, Belle Aliance is an inconsistent release where Göttsching tries out influences from diverse sources such as funk, rock, reggae, world music and others. His electic guitar playing remains recognizably bluesy but has lost the urgency and spaciness of yore.

There still are a couple of interesting tracks in the first half, Wudu works quite well with its relaxed bouncy pace, Voodoo voices and moody guitar work, Screamer is a bit of fun where Göttsching sounds heavier then usual, and Aerogen is a fine APP-inspired instrumental. The remainder of the short pieces show Göttsching in a either go-happy moods or new age fluffiness. Code Blue is an ambient piece like he's done so many before. Not bad for new age relaxation music but a dull listen.

If I would made an Ashra compilation I'd only take Wudu from this album, the remainder of the album lacks freshness, inspiration and heart. Göttschings's weakest release for me.

2 stars This album has nothing to do with the fantastic electronic prog music that was available on the first two albums form "ASHRA".

The opening track ("Wudu") is a great "press next" tune (?) with no other comment. I will describe the next one "Screamer" as a good new wave song. An incredible beat and a totally "Devo" sound. If you have listened once to their great "Uncontrollable Urge" you could grab the similarity.

Dear Manuel is even integrating some reggae in his music ("Boomerang")! While I did like reggae in the seventies, I am quite surprised to hear such a poor stuff on an "Ashra" album. This is the second "press next" tune out of three. You can do the same a little later with "Kazoo" though?

The wild and upbeat "Aerogen" does feature superb guitar work and it is the best track available here. Still, this has NOTHING to do with prog electronic. At least according to my standards. Anyway, along the whole album, this is the main theme: a total break with the early days.

To be fully honest, a track as "Sausalito" does provide a great feeling: the magical guitar sound is working perfectly after half time (but the intro is quite longish and not very appealing).

This album has very few great moments. "Mistral" is one of them. But it is the closing number and it sounds as a great "Santana" tune: great guitar (but this is only normal), great beat, superb melody. It is a wonderful "Santana" song" indeed. But is this what we expect from "Ashra"???

The longish and repetitive "Code Blue" doesn't add anything tangible to the whole. Two stars, no more.

5 stars This is probably the best Ashra album after 'New Age of Earth.' It shares a few elements with that record - notably on the second side with its 15-minute 'Code Blue' - but it is also a more varied album, much more so than 'Blackouts,' as good as that one is on its own terms. The first side, whic ... (read more)
