5 stars Like Synergy being the name for Larry Fast's electronic project of the 1970s and '80s, Breidablik is the name of a Norwegian electronic project from a guy named Moten Birkeland Nielsen. Nhoohr is the second vinyl release, the third full release overall, and is by far the lengthiest release so far. Once again the Schulze and Tangerine Dream influences are felt, and while there is a lot of familiar territory still covered, I really felt the addition of acoustic guitar on "The Old Forest" was a nice addition. Also the inclusion of drum machine on "Perihelion" was something brand new as well. It's really hard to pick a highlight, as usual with a Breidablik album, but once again proves that Morten is one of the great, newer electronic artists that fans of the Berlin School can get behind (although amusingly, he calls what he does the Bergen School of Electronic Music, mainly due to the fact he's based out of Bergen, Norway). If you need something more upbeat, this isn't for you, but for me, I still can't help but be reminded of the snowy, rocky jagged mountain of Norway. The eerie cover really helps. Really worth your time, once again.
