4 stars Ouch! What a thunder! What a lightning! I've never heard such a German gem since long. Traumhaus plays a symphonic prog in the way of Anyone's Daughter, Novalis. No less. Traumhaus (i.e. 'the House of Dreams') is a German group that evolved out of a mid 90s outfit called Zweeback. The line up changed since the very beginning in 2001. It now features Alexander Weyland (vocals, keyboards), Tobias Hampl (guitars), Sebastian Klein (bass), Stefan Hopf (additional drums loops) and Mr Jimmy Keegan of Spock's Beard and Santana fame, a terrific drummer. Third album already and it's a pure bliss. Fans of Genesis and Yes will enjoy this pearl and they are right. Fluid and lyrical guitars, vintage keyboards, ambitious and complex polyrhythmic compositions alternate with catchy melodies. No weak point except, perhaps, the energetic 'Frei'. The rest is a pure delight and makes this album a must really. Highly recommended.
