3 stars With Phorzenlight there's always the risk of getting about one hour of low volume noises which don't go anywhere, and this is what I was afraid of after the previous two albums.

I have to say that even if very few things happen also on the two long tracks of this album, the sounds are not so boring and flat as in "Moon". There's the impression of a chord, some electronic "ooh" and effectively, if you are travelling alone on a starship through the deep space, this is an appropriate soundtrack.

"Helios" is everything but boring, but you have to be in the right mood. This is up to now the track closer to the Tangerine Dream of the Pink Period that this Flying Dutchman has been able to produce even being for his own admission strongly influenced by them. I survived to those rhythmless 26 minutes of keyboards and this is likely to happen again.

"Solarised" is a bit longer, clocking at 31:21. Now the basic chord is minor and the ooh voices include low pitches. For the rest it's honestly almost identical to the other track and it's strange having so few to say about a track of this length apart some "strings" appearing and disappearing suddenly in the background. In particular situations I can enjoy this music. If you are in meditation it can work fine, that's why my rating would be "barely good and absolutely non essential", but it doesn't mean an integer number of stars so I'm rounding it up to three.
