Yogi Lang biography
German composer and musician Yogi LANG is best known for his lengthy tenure as frontman of German band RPWL. He's also appeared on albums by Eureka, Blind Ego and Parzival's Eye. The latter two solo projects by bandmates Kalle Wallner and Chris Postl respectively. Lang himself has stayed away from such ventures himself. Until 2010 that is.
No Decoder was released in November 2010, and is a thematic production that deals with the inability to project one?s thoughts and feelings on another person and consequently with the failed simple attempt to be understood.
The CD was released through Lang and Wallner's record label Gentle Art of Music.

3 stars Yogi Lang, on this album, is still playing the Pink Floyd influenced songs, as he often did in the band he is most known for here, RPWL. That is not to say the songs are not original, but that the textures and feelings can be pinpointed from song to song, bringing up comparisons to Floyd tracks from Dark Side Of The Moon Onward. This isn't so bad, as Gilmour and Waters are both getting on in years, and new material from them is sparse at best. But while Lang has the Gilmour side down close to perfectly, save for the fact that no one can imitate DG's perfectly smooth guitar solos, he is missing Waters' genius. The final effect is that this album comes much closer to sounding like the two Waters-less Floyd albums than anything else. The intention is good, the sound is good. But memorable? No.

Review by renaudbb

3 stars In addition to the previous review from Windhawk, it has to be said that Yogi perfectly imitates the famous Manfred Mann's keyboard playing in this album, noticeably in "Sacrifice". For the remaining stuff, it's easy listening casual prog, nothing revolutionnary but pleasant to hear. Of course, the post Waters Pink Floyd era reminiscence is still there. Funny that some musician prefers to imitate this Pink Floyd version than the true one :-) I always ask myself why spending so much energy to create just "another more prog album" that brings nothing more to the world than some more notes and sounds.

3 stars German composer and multi-instrumentalist Yogi LANG is a person most likely best known for his lengthy tenure in the German band RPWL, where he has been the front man since its inception. "No Decoder" is his first solo production, and was released in November 2010.

Yogi Lang doesn't stray too far off the path of his band RPWL with his solo debut, and the longer items might as well have been planned for a future release by them. When he ventures forth into new territories it is to ones more frequently explored by artists with a mainstream orientation, by way of pleasant, gentle and unobtrusive ballads, in some cases with a sheer sense of beauty that does make an impact, while others come across as closer to the bread and butter variety of such creations. Overall, this is a disc worth looking into if you enjoy RPWL, and in particular the gentler parts of the band's output.
