2 stars Trying to give Laurent Schieber aka Sequentia Legenda a 4th chance to prove he is not an unrequired clone of TD or K. Schulze, I went for the lowest rated (and unreviewed) album here in PA. (para no pisar callos)

Amira a 3 track (one composition in its short and long version + a different 20 minutes one) 2015 release and second album (as far as it seems here) is no exception to my already formed impression of just another Progressive Electronic musician recreating someone's else musical language.

The only reason I found for it to have no big enthusiasts may well be my own reason to rate it as a decent tribute, but repetitive to the bone, music composition wise.

Its own few highlights are overly stretched until they become a repetition of a repetition disguised with some electronic efx but not enough to actually enrich the once charming then boring, due to the same, few interesting melodic lines (which may end up sounding like only one long tedious one).

Digging in deep and with a lot of patience it shows here and there some interesting moments which makes me wonder why he has to be so blatantly self-overshadowed by the huge self-impossed cloud of those two gigantic Progressive Electronic figures self acquired and rightly owned musical languages, when he could turn the whole thing around?

So to be gentle, (and think of my money going down the drain as part of the job), another Sequentia Legenda tribute to past heroes with an added touch of his own super famous countryman Jean Michel Jarre's musical idiom. (Who by the way actually had the talent & vision to construct his OWN electronic musical language even among those gigantic, menacing shadows in their own time and kingdom up to the point of influencing their style eventually).

Anyway back to the numbers, 2.5 for this one.
