4 stars For whom the gong tolls.

Where are those cape crusaders who defend Gong to the bone? Where are the eager preachers of the word of Deavid?

Nowhere to be seen. Now seriously, where are the followers of "all terrain" Steve Hillage? I guess the Progressive Electronic labeling would not help much to this by itself obscure Deavid Allenīs non comic musical ensemble by the names of Sacred Geometry Band (or Deavid Allen Microcosmic) . Well they say that knowledge is material so the few get more.

Sacred Geometry 4, (a perfectly disposed 7 track, 2016 release), stands up to any post-Berlin/Bay Area/Krautrock/Psychedelic electronic music notable work.

The so loved hippie mood has not been lost in translation, so Gong fans, do not feel excluded. Steveīs to the rescue with his motivation radio guitar along a heavy artillery of ethereal synths happy go band and Deavid Allenīs glissando guitar but this is not Canterbury stuff, close to (NOT THE SAME) Hillageīs Rainbow Dome Musick (1979) reloaded and refined in todayīs high tech recording standards, to set it somewhere in close range to the Progressive Electronic field where this band was settled.

Rich in musical ideas, maturity & cohersion all seven tracks add up to its perfect pitch flow. Its playful, misplaced in time, electro/acoustic musical language goes back and forth the retro-modern mode which keeps it from being old or new thus running free of this burden.

If not for the more than needed glissando guitar appearances (imnho) this could get 5 full stars, but Deavid Allenīs eagerness to play kind of takes away the element of surprise for a 55 minutes only album. But itīs his band and he can cry if he wants to.

Meditative music for the restless dreamer. ****/*
