Review: Norbert Krueler alias Shamall worked hard again. Fans of longtracks will get their money worth entirely with this double-cd. Each single track respectively part flow smoothly into each other, so it may give the impression of a sole composition (of 78 minutes in case of CD 01). The first CD starts with mellow e-piano and heavy e-guitar sounds - Shamall creates a kind of atmospheric space-prog slowly and with a lot of breathing space, which reminds at the seventies' Pink Floyd era. Chanting synths like in "Wish you were here"- or "Animals"-days arise a - high-class - kind of futuristic "Picture Music", where the listener evolves his own mind movie.
Thematically this double-album deals with the ignorant behavior of the mankind towards their environment - similar to the current album of the german krautrock band Eloy. Krueler knows to stage a thunder-storm of epic and space-sounds - even better than on his previous releases. So it's worth to go for an expedition here and despite of a few single redundancies, its always a true pleasure to listen.
The second CD "Living incommunicado" is more rock-oriented with lots of guitar parts and soli. Bonus-tracks perfect this album.
