4 stars To pinpoint where Grauglanz's "Übergänge " (Transitions), 2012, stands in this prog/electronic universe, sonic wise, Mark Shreeve's Assassin, 1983, will be the perfect reference or as his bio in PA describes as Neo-Berlin School music, of which Shreeve became a pioneer, the same as Ian Boddy which also can be referred.

Elegantly constructed, its mysterious solitary melody lines move along "clean-electronic urban environments" without noise or industrial analogies. Opposite to that, shimmering and bright night textures are abundant, as the up-front electric piano and synth, more than once catchy, but intelligent riffs.

Its "modern" electronics as its intelligent songwriting, give enough self-created music credentials and sets this release not as a mere repetition of past formulas but instead offers a newflanged approach to this styling.

Sober, hypnotic, attractive and rich in creative ideas, its only flaw is track 4,"Sieben (Flaschen Bier)", which I suppose was meant to be whimsical or funny, but turns out to be quiet expendable. Besides that, this parade of electronic transitions and environments is flawless.

****4 PA stars.
