4 stars Logos is the debut album from this bizarre, wonderful man Igor Wakhevitch. This album made up of stark, enigmatic and ritualistic percussion and choral chanting all put together on an avant-garde electrical base. The electronics don't usually stand out as obviously as they do on Wakhevitch's later albums; they're used here mostly to set a smooth and dark atmosphere, and to add accentuating experimental noises to the bleek choral and string arrangements. There is a wonderful marriage of 20th century classical and avant-garde experimentalism that would sound like one of A. Berg's slower vocal works performed under K. Stockhausen's direction, and doesn't sound much different from the material found on Hathor. There is occasional electric guitar on this album, but it doesn't stick out until the last couple of tracks, which almost serves as a foreshadowing to Docteur Faust.

Another piece of highly recommended avant-garde electronic album from Wakhevitch.
