5 stars A shame this prog gem is buried in oblivion!

German quartet Cozmic Corridors only self titled 1974 release, is the kind of effort which portrays effectively the fine borders of Krautrock's "let's be playful but not clowns", and the "artsy" part of prog/electronics, closer in mood to Conrad Schnitzler's improvisations than Tangerine Dream's flowing environments, just to explain the prevailing air breathed in this 5 songs project, not as a comparison.

Their minimalistic exercises are intelligent composition wise, yet in their irreverent approach, they do climb great heights in matter of seconds, all due my friends to their genial songwriting, which once inside, it won't let go!

The mixture of deep spaced electronics, organ church like progressions, as vintage organ mystery movie ambients, menacing as attractive string works, serious and mysterious yet subtly humurous and measured performances, some religious like chanting voice in one track, some sexy female crooning in other, the pre-Lustmord like obscure environments, being almost entirely instrumental and a set of non-stop creative musical ideas and goals, do make for a flawless effort.

An unquestionable must, far beyond the somewhat repetitive Krautrock scene, as a must for any prog/electronic audiophile looking for something in the mid 70´s which offered a fresh route and not the TD or Schulze like material everyone started to copy, as a spacy clear and dark unorthodox entirely psychedelic trip for those who favour that sub-genre´s unearthly qualities.

*****5 ¨Flawless¨ PA stars.
