3 stars A promising start from a "Krautrock", late bloomer.

Hard to just overrate, as far as the PA ratings usually do. This 2005 album "Exquisite Lust ", can't hide its, Ash Ra Tempel, GAM, Fripp & Eno, Manuel Gottsching or Gunther Schickert's deep influence ( and of course, Steve Reich and Terry Riley, who "influenced", these musicians, the same way) . More than once, these ROOTS are this record's main drawback and more than once, I think, it was quiet unnecessary.

This musician, has talent enough, and more than enough "technical advantages", in comparisson, to those "old" legends. For starters "studio time", which in those days, was a matter of economics, more than talent alone. (of course if you were non-mainstream, as Prog was in those days, glorious days). So, considering that you now can Re-record, Re-play, Edit, master and remaster, from the comfort of your toilet seat, if you wish, you should have less of a hurry and economical pressure, to compose and play. And that my friends is called "field advantage", as far as song writing and musical composition goes. NOW, talent itself, is just another realm.

Exquisite Lust, is a promising 1st album. It will remind you of "old days", but also, it will offer a very pleasurable rendition to those legends. And of course it is beautifully recorded and mastered.

***3.5 "worth listening to", PA stars.
