4 stars A real interesting album by this Turkish outfit - it's a shame that they disbanded some 10 years ago.

What we're dealing with here is refined space rock; where the dominating elements are floating synths and driving bass pretty similar to what you'll find on German act Eloy's album Ocean and the gentler excursions of late 70's Pink Floyd. Spiced up with heavier passages at select times; mostly courtesy of slow, powerful riffs and riff patterns.

The tunes, in particular the longer ones, offers frequent changes of pace, atmosphere and mood; with frequent build-ups to richly textured or majestic sonic tapestries taken back to sparse, slow and mellow themes with a gradual build-up to the next monumentous top. Skillfully done, with spacey synths and searching drawn out guitar licks providing the space in the space rock here.

An intelligent and well crafted production, that sounds relevant even a decade after it was made.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
