Review by erik neuteboom
3 stars The name of this German band is derived from the USA native Indian word for 'winter. Waniyetula is rooted in 1969 but it lasted until 1982 to release an album under their own name entitled A Dream Within A Dream. This album sounds varied and pleasant featuring some wonderful pure symphonic prog moments with hints from the Classic Seventies Prog like Yes and Genesis but not derivative, Waniyetula was a group that hosted creative composers. The atmosphere in the 7 songs alternates from dreamy and moving to up- tempo and bombastic with some beautiful soli on guitar and keyboards. The 3 bonustracks are on the level of 'fillers' (poor sound quality) but the original album delivers some very interesting prog, this is one of the better releases of the Garden Of Delights label.

3 stars Yet another one-off courtesy of the Garden of Delights label, A Dream within a Dream sounds rather more like the work of seasoned and synergistic musicians. And with reason, for they had actually been together for years and produced an album under another name, but this is the one to get. Sort of a companion piece to APP's "Tales of Mystery and Imagination", "A Dream within a Dream" sounds curiously similar to Parsons at times, perhaps in the vocal style and treatment. Sure there are updates resulting in a more polished 1980s sound, but it does not detract in the least, and the songs develop enough to feature some appealing progression, particularly in "valley of Unrest", while "Dreamland" is a fine number whose origin I question. I cannot find songwriting credits but the chorus sounds like something I have heard before. Other highlights are "Alone" which begins sleepily and develops into a Gothic tune with plenty of organ, synthesizers, jangly guitars and vocal harmonies, "Feathery Bird" and "If I could tell you". I am reminded of Eloy at times, but the voice is less accented. This is a disc that traps a spacey atmosphere and draws you into it as in a dream. Recommended to fans of German symphonic rock.

3 stars Good work ... , in this album "A Dream Within a Dream" the German prog band WANIYETULA try to create a prog-rock more close to comercial song and the results isn't bad. In spite the disk shows a really pop rhythms like in the track 3 "Feathery Bird" whose shows a rhythmic section as soo ... (read more)
