3 stars This is the first full length album from German quartet The Amber Light. This is music that is built more on soundscapes and the use of emotion than many standard prog epics. They appear to be interested in Radiohead and possibly Pineapple Thief but I have to confess that for me the jury is still very much out, as I can't make up my mind whether this is a good album or not. I enjoy the gentle acoustic 'Devil Song' which has some delicate touches and is always building yet restrained, but some of the others just don't really work for me. There are two songs at over thirteen minutes long but I have found it hard to get excited about these either. They are supposed to be the new future for German progressive rock ? of that I'm not too sure.
