Review by Rivertree
4 stars HEDERSLEBEN have gained some attention in the meanwhile, or how does it come that some of their tracks are featured in upcoming action movies like Diamond Cartel and The Devil's Domain? The band name originally derives from a small German village. This relation, and I would say it will affect mastermind Nicky Garratt most likely, manifests in a German speech at the end of Distant Sun for example. Hedersleben however includes the word 'life' too, which also stands for a constant coming and going. And this is significant when it comes to the line up over the course, completely renewed again, solely Nicky excluded of course.

Hence every album will sound remoulded too. Hey, what a benefit! There's a focus on female vocals here somehow, due to Alicia Previn being involved, a wonderful find equipped with so many variants. Either an otherworldly appearance while digitally retouched on Judas Star. Or concerning Rarefied Air massively reminding me at some early experiences comprising Embryo and Missus Beastly featuring Maria Archer on vocals during the mid 1970s. Furthermore, when counting her in playing the violin, Curved Air comes into mind occasionally.

Please forgive my ... eh, feasible narrow-mindedness ... just when having a very sceptical eye on this, ... somewhat strange is the album's total length, even if aiming at a vinyl issue. So much the more when they are taking the liberty to fade out most of the given nine songs! On the other hand though, the more this is proving the band's compositional prolificness, one may say. Either way, the entire song collection appears like a well sorted string of shiny tiny pearls, one after another, ending with Perigree like arriving in paradise, this accompanied by looping acoustic guitars and bird's twittering. No loss of spirit, you're welcome again!
