Froese, Franke, Schmoelling
A classic album of the band in their 80’s formation which sees Franke, Froese & Co. at the peak of their powers both as composers and performers.Along with Tangram and Logos this is the best album you can listen to from the band in this period. Hyperborea shows the band taking advantage and imagination of the then, new technology.
No Man’s Land (a track influenced by the Gandhi film, according to Schmoelling) shows Eastern influences and has an inventive Sitar sampler.Hyperborea with its mysterious and enigmatic feel harks back to the band’s psychedelic era (in fact the album cover is easily comparable to their 70’s imagery). There’s also a splendid Froese guitar solo on this track.Cinnamon Road is a little sequenced based track that shows the important contribution of Franke in the band’s sound.Sphinx Lightning (the long track here) ends the album in a quality note, it has a powerful intro, sequencer moments, tempo changes and finishes with those typical Schmoelling melodies.
2003. Manuel Brum
