4 stars Have you ever wanted to dance listening to atmospheric prog? So take this: Tiefenrausch, the underground one-shot from the german band ACI. An enjoyable mix of sci-fi disco, prog electronic, space ambient and krautrock. The band focus on spacey synth settings.

The album starts with the happy Reise. The second track, Tiefenrausch, is a prog disco. So we have the dancing Deutsche Welle, one of their best moves, with robotic vocals and a catchy bassline. Sonnestrahl is the last song from the A side. It's a thriller song and it closes the side in a very adventurous prog way.

The B side starts with the futuristic Drachenflug, a mood for an abduction and exploration into a new dimension. Impuls is a very trippy' ambiental song. It's disco time again, and the robotic voice (so cool) strikes back in Umlaufbahn. The bassline make the music catchy once more. And the last song of the night, Ellipse, seems to be a theme for an oldschool sci-fi cheesy movie, and I like it.

They reach the prog essence of make the listener trip and develop a plot line just listening to the song. I will never underestimate the disco music tag (in a prog way) again.
