2 stars Peter Baumann - 1979 - "Trans Harmonic Nights".

In between experimental and straight progressive electronic ideas splashed with the inevitable drum/boxes and CASIO mini-keyboard like sequences and Mr. Baumann's early compulsive obsession of building melody lines at all times, which is kind of a trademark in him, but becomes an obstacle to the far more daring electronics which actually steal the show, outweighting in creativity the "sweetness" and irredeemably cheesy melody riffs which fill most, if not almost all, of the tracks.

A couple of microscopic highlights emerge here and there intact but the rest is subdued or reduced to a simplistic and excuse my words, foolish, musical expression.

Peter Baumann's comic sense of irreverence kind of saves the day, but then again his melody lines are not that attractive as to toy around with them.

I had great expectations set in this release, due to its date, but some stuff is no good, no matter when or where...DAMN!

**2 "for T.D.'s or DisneyWorld's X-treme fans only" PA stars.
