I came across this album a few weeks ago with the warm recommendation by Mr. Aussie Byrd, and I simply can't stop listening to it. I still can't swallow the debut just yet but I'm getting there.
By the way thanks Sagi and yes it's one of my favourite Zeuhl albums now. The guy knows how to drum and it's so cool that Eckert from Art Zoyd is on it.

Just wanted to highlight a reviewer we sadly don't see that often anymore, Greenback.

This one shows that you don't necessarily have to write bible length reviews to illustrate the sound and feel of an album: http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=32436

Man, I love this one - and it's actually a fine and very apt description of said album methinksLOL

Well me too Steve. I just love the way he describes the album, even if he hates it with a vengeance

Just wanted to highlight one of my current faves. Coasterzombie has been dishing out reviews for RPI releases, known and obscure, like it was going out of fashion. It has been a guilty pleasure of mine, putting albums on he just reviewed and thereby also rekindling my love for the music.
This guy should be reviewer methinks. No doubt about it

stefro, good man! Thumbs Up At last, another soul that enjoys Holger's Movies. You've emphasized some pretty interesting points about the album, like: 

"Whilst that album [Canaxis] - which was also pieced together from various scraps of samples and radio recordings - proved a somewhat difficult listen, 'Movies' is anything but. Humorous, catchy and utterly fascinating, this the kind of album that showcases the right kind of curious experimentation, with Czukay leading the listener through a merry dance of sounds, textures and styles without ever forgetting the key rock music ingredients. "

I wonder which track off of the album is your favorite. Smile

Oh and i wanted to mention Ivan's review of SINKADUS' first album. Can't believe he found it in a bargain bin. It's been out of print for a while so it really caught my eye to see his review on the front page. Man there are so many albums from the nineties and early 00's that you just don't see reviewed anymore unlike when I first started coming here in '05.

It's a funny release. I think it has this merry-go-round feel to it. Fairground soundtrack or something. It's definitely an altogether different beast than the two you have John. The instruments also sound very peculiar.

EDIT: I was referring to the Holger Czukay album...

Must comment on David's (Guldbamsen) last string of reviews, that as always are so fun to read. Excellent album picking from the french scene. Some really extraordinary obscure masterpieces that really deserves a bigger exposure, from Dashiell Hedayatt to Triode, Komintern, Alpes and Vannier, all fantastic!

Keep up the sacred work man!! Clap

You're too kind Sagi, thanks a million manEmbarrassed

I am actually on my way to Italy for my upcoming reviews, just in case you're interested in following my review road trip. 
I'll catch you later though - I was in the midst of writing one.
Again thank you for the praise my friend, it's always nice to see people still read the frontpageHug

Thanks John! 
I promise I'll keep it going as long as I can. Summer vacation from studies, so until I have to start thinking about some paperwork that I need to do before I begin, I'll continue to write.

Ditto!  I loved the quote he made on the "Procession" album today (now I have to get it).  I am the same on the RPI stuff.
 Qutoe: "On here I've decided that the singing is just so damn gorgeous in itself, that I'm not even slightly interested in finding out what he's singing about."
 
 
I must also put out a shout of RPI praise for Michael "Aussie Byrd Brother", his reviews have been quite in depth and insightful.  Clap
