5 stars Well, how the hell Steve Hauschildt´s Nonlin (2019), can surpass his previous masterwork?

By not even glancing at it, nor becoming over indulgent, neither falling prey of his own previous work´s excellence as prog legends usually do automatically. Need names? Not the time nor the place.

A fresh new perspective of his own self acquired possibilities, without overworking the same roads , but having the fun and eagerness to feel free to sow new ones, I mean, this is an artist at work, nor a clown, neither your harlequin, if you are in come on and join the party, if not , well you have the right to do so . He is not here to repeat himself for the pleasure of your enjoyment, he obviously is not here for your money, artistry certainly has a price, usually paid by the artist himself.

No time to lose in ephemeral ratings or reviews, people will still praise whathever they want to, but to the ones who can even raise a pen to write 53 words.. and still have the ability to be overwhelmed by an original, way ahead of its time, yet as humanly close as independent Progressive Electronic music could turn out to be, this is another Steve Hauschildt´s real deal work.

If you need more written info to lose yourself in written words, well maybe someone else would write all the WORDS you need, but if you are in for the music , well my friend, you are in for a perfecly threaded embroidery of the few & complex simplifications of the the still unturned stones (no famous or infamous plagiiarists allowed repetitions), which makes contemporary Electronic music still such a thrill and silently the future of any contemporary prog band (any genre, time will tell (lol), time will tell).

In Prog world´s layman´s terms and in comparison (underlined) like the distance between , ( both masterworks), Close to the Edge & Relayer, also like the gap between Rubycon & Ricochet, genre wise speaking (also of course both masterworks) , even though , I do still prefer the first references due to their own music language idiosyncrasies and opposite resemblances , of course in Steve Hauschildt´s contemporary electronic music idiom & point of view, which of course is just a manner of explaining and has nothing to do with Yes.

***** "Another 5 star gem" . ENJOY , enjoy & enjoy...............................

PS: If, as told, you need more to read, well read more in his Bandcamp site, but if you have the urge to listen to hyper well written and evenly performed contemporarty PROG Electronic music, don´t miss.
