3 stars Another brick in the P/E wall.

It is a real paradox in the P.A.'s Prog/Electronic world. To be inducted you must show Berlin School credentials or West Coast ones, the American translation of the European one. Musical languages which themselves diversified into a zillion rivers, more than once, completely transfigured from their primal roots. To cut it short, if you sound like someone from those recognized early 70's to the late 90's you are inducted.

As I clearly mentioned in my TANGERINE DREAM "RUBYCON", 1975, I am one of those children who was raised and spoiled rotten by that Electronic music masterpiece. Add to that, that I have never been nor pretend to be the kind of guy who enjoys listening to someone who sounds like someone else, case dismissed!

So as you, may not know, everytime I see the benovolence of someone associating any Electronic act to Progressive Electronic's Gods, be it T.D. or Klauz Schulze, it , instead of a welcome, is understood as a farwell!

NODE's musical idiom is far from being unique, they sure offer a clean cut rendition of T.D.'s self acquired and self-discovered Progressive Electronic language, but as I have stated, it is no big thrill for me to listen to someone who sounds like someone else. Composition over performance, that is my drug!
