Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars CAMERA is a young German band who have compiled an album that consists of songs that are on the one hand dark and experimental soundscapes and on the other hand songs that have that Motorik beat ala NEU!, LA DUSSELDORF and HARMONIA. I do prefer those dark soundscapes but man this is such a good idea contrasting these two different styles of Krautrock.

"From The Outside" opens with a spacey atmosphere before a beat joins in. Man this sounds so good. The guitar is gently played over top. Nice. Distorted guitar before 3 1/2 minutes and it's interesting how the distorted guitar brings to mind the psychedelic period of PORCUPINE TREE. I like it! A top four track. "Parhelion" has this steady beat and deep distorted sounds as it builds. So catchy! Love the dissonant sax and distorted guitar on this track. "Synchron" really reminds me of LA DUSSELDORF, NEU! and HARMONIA along with the modern Krautrock band SIINA. That steady beat with light keys, distorted guitar lines and more.

"Roehre" like the previous track has that motorik beat leading the way. Lots of pulsating sounds in this uptempo track. Love the guitar late. "4 PM" has this haunting soundscape with unusual sounds. It starts to build before 1 1/2 minutes, so cool. A slow beat with a dark sound takes over and the keys and guitar become more prominent later. A top four track. "Haeata" is a short song with tribal-like drumming, pulsating sounds and guitar expressions. "Ozymandias" is another dark and experimental soundscape. Love this stuff, so much atmosphere here. "To The Inside" is a top four track for me as well. Insane drum work early on with distorted guitars. It settles back as female spoken words join in. I wish this one was longer.

"2 AM" opens with atmosphere, cymbals and someone yelling in the background before a motorik beat kicks in. Check out the distortion 3 1/2 minutes in. "Trophaee" has uptempo drumming with plenty of atmosphere as male spoken words arrive, guitar too. The sound of running water ends it. "Vortices" is my final top four and it features acoustic guitar early on as the atmosphere comes in and dominates. A beat comes out of the haze as fuzzed out guitar cries out. It turns very spacey late. "Hallraum" has this pulsating rhythm with lighter sounding guitar and keys over top. The guitar turns more passionate and distorted later.

This album has been a pleasure to listen to and the way they contrast the two different styles really works here. 4.5 stars.

Review by Rivertree
3 stars When recording their debut 'Radiate' in 2012 CAMERA made a step away from their roots, I mean the guerilla tactic, which originally manifested in spontaneous music happenings at secret places somewhere in the city respectively underground of Berlin. Quality gets around sooner or later, thus Michael Rother and Dieter Moebius took notice of them, this developed into some mutual gigs furthermore. And then the band left Berlin and went on tour across Europe. Just following this taken path their sophomore album called 'Remember I Was Carbon Dioxide' got on the table in 2014, released on Bureau B.

February the same year Franz Bargmann suddenly left the band due to personal reasons. They were reduced to a duo then, but Timm Brockmann and Michael Drummer (yes, no misspelling here!) went the pragmatic way and both took over the guitar task. While the general approach hasn't changed really music-wise, this time a few other musicians are guesting on the recordings to provide a more comprehensive sound. A little bit Electric Orange mooded Parhelion is on the way to reach for a highlight position the more I'm coming back to this album.

The twelve songs are picking up the spirit of Can, Kraftwerk, Neu by nature, that's for sure. Nowadays you have to search for bands with such an approach and abilities concerning the workout. When comparing with their debut this is more varied and unique overall. Which means spacey, ambient moments, motoric rhythms as usual, but also including tribal percussion, the saxophone and vocals this time. I would not call this spectacular, but what I hear is a proper effort with room for experimentation anyhow, which sums it up to 3.5 stars.
