~~ Novalis second album is a symphonic prog monster! This self title album presents a high musical level, simply equal to "Banished Bridge" and "Sommerabend".
The first track is maybe the less impressive one but in a sense it
features a beautiful intergalactic-symphonic theme played by keyboards
and special rhythmical guitar lines. The second composition starts with a
lyrical, semi acoustic theme with strong organ parts and bucolic vocals
in German. A heavy organ / guitar duet emerges, punctuated by a
beautiful, fragile, celestial female voice in the distance. Before
coming back to the central theme, the track features an amazing rock 'n
roll section. "Dronsz"
is so good. This track reaches the listener into a heavy, moody «
intersidereal » trip. A basic bass line and electronic effects in the
background announce a cold but tremendous atmosphere. The composition
progressively grows into a dark, creepy affair with really doom
keyboards parts. " Impressionen » is a kind of neo-classical piece. The tune starts with a marvellous
introspective organ sentence. Step by step the sound turns to something
majestic and mysterious. The guitar solos are purely magic. "Impressionen » is a poetic, bucolic and reflective composition. It alternates semi acoustic elements, dreamy synth
sequences and a sumptuous emotional, technical guitar solo. Real
emotions, poetry and a complexity in writing constitute the major
ingredients of this album.
