Turn Of The Tides
PRODUCER: Edgar Froese
German synth-music pioneers return with an opulent album that should thrust them back into the center of the new age circuit, where they have flourished for years. From the opening strains of Mussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition" to flamenco-laced originals like "Firetongues" and "Galley Slave's Horizon" (with masterful fret work by Zlatko Perica), the record offers colorful instrumentals that range from ambient to melodic to rhythmic; a particular highlight is the title-track closer, rich with exotic sounds and a vibrant beat. Group's longevity and proven track record bode well for a long chart life.
