2 stars TANGLE EDGE are a three piece band from Norway who play instrumental Psychedelic music. A lot of repetitive, hypnotic music on here as drums and bass keep the beat while the guitar tries to keep it interesting.

"Emerald Mound" opens with some backward guitar before a gong signals the start of this trippy tune. Guitar plays over top of the bass and drums throughout. "Transcendental Virtue Part I : Serene Procession" is almost 19 minutes long and opens with cymbals and other sounds as a beat starts to build. The guitar starts to make some noise 2 minutes in before turning into angular melodies quickly. Drums and bass continue as the angular guitar plays over top until before 14 minutes in when it changes back to making some noise. The beat ends after 16 minutes as the song continues to wind down to nothing.

"Transcendental Virtue Part II : Beyond Elevation" opens with electronic sounds as gentle guitar comes in and then a beat. The sound starts to build before 4 minutes. The guitar is very active 7 1/2 minutes in. It starts to unwind 14 minutes in. "The Seventh Tide" is 2 minutes of experimental sounds. "Daidalos Hunt" opens with cymbals and dissonant guitar sounds. Drums come in and build. The guitar is crying out almost before becoming melodic (well sort of). Just not that pleasant of a sound.

Very disappointed in this release. I found myself getting annoyed a lot when listening to this album. That rarely happens with me, but these guys did it way too often. I like angular guitar, but the way it was done here was grating my nerves. Just not the album for me I guess.
