Now what is this? After 3 albums of declining sound tapestries, this Dark Side of the Moog album returns to form and starts with the most ominous piece of scary moog you have ever heard!

As usual it begins with a repetitive drone that doesn't seem to get anywhere but gradually it develops, an awesome moog lead starts building up in the background and grows louder and higher and wilder till it turns your cosy living room into a desolate piece of dark moon desert. Only play this at maximum volume. A cliché, but here it is really indispensable to ensure the devestating effect of this ominous track. Yes, we're using big expensive words here!

The second piece is even better, simply superb. It sounds very Ashra, with guitar sounds improvising on a synth sequence right out of the golden age of Ashra and old Schulze. There's some filler at the end of the album but even that can't destroy the crushing effect of the first two masterpieces.
