3 stars Another synthesiser-backed album of guitar noodling from Manuel Göttsching, though this time around I'm a bit less impressed than I was with New Age of Earth. Göttsching clearly has chops, but he too often just fumbles along in a bog standard psychedelic format and never quite gets around to doing anything particularly new. The spirit of Ash Ra Tempel which still haunted New Age of Earth has gone and nothing of consequence has come in to take its place. It's a decent, placid New Agey guitar album, but little of consequence beyond that - those seeking genuinely progressive electronic material would do better to chase up the preceding Ashra album.
Warthur | 3/5 |
