Prog Reviewer
2 stars I have rated most of the albums from this series with three stars with some noticeable exceptions: "Four" with two stars; and "Sven" with four.

This eighth volume, isn't right in line with its predecessor (or maybe with the fourth one). The extremely long first part (over twenty-five minutes) is a boring and repetitive item with absolutely no taste nor flavour. Dull from the first to the last (1516) second.

Same beat all the way through. Best avoided as far as I'm concerned even if the last ten minutes are way better. The ambient and melodic "Part III" is probably my fave thanks to its quietness. It gives a break amidst all these frenzy beats that are available for most of the time.

One of my preferred section is "Part VI", thanks to the great moog play. But the beat is too hectic (as in "Part VII") to be fully enjoyable. Another listenable passage is the closing one which, again, offers some very decent moog work.

Actually, the whole of this album is not very appealing; and if you want to start the discovery of this "Moog" series, I don't recommend at all this one. It is also waaaaay too long (almost eighty minutes!).Two stars.
