3 stars Contemporary classical music suffers of many founded and unfounded prejudices. Over indulgent compositions composed for musicians solely, overly sweet transvestites of classical forms and so on...

Lambwool's works are close to contemporary classical forms as they of course blend in with the synthetic spaces the electronics bring on.

I have had the fortune (underline fortune) of listening to some of Lambwool's releases included here in PA, and by choice I will start with his second work "...AND THE ANGEL IS GONE", 2008, as it appears here in PA.

As one will expect with an early release his musical structures, as his music composition, are yet to be polished, refined, constructed, deconstructed and then restructured, as his posterior works clearly show. Nevertheless, for starters, Lambwool's standards are quiet high.

There is drama, there are subtle encounters with "world music", without the Pop that parasites usually around it, there are deep and intriguing electronic environments, as the main melody structures revolve around the before mentioned contemporary classic and mere "classical" music influences. The fact that this release is fractioned into 7 independent tracks, enriches the aural experience, as it also enhances the level of Lambwool's music composition talent.

There are some "buts" here and there. The over dramatic melody lines are not my cup of tea, but if anything, they actually do not last that long and are not over the top pretentious.

Anyway! A highly surprising, exciting and unique Progressive ELECTRONIC musical language which in fact will develop and evolve in future works, but as such better than any overrated P.E. musician here in P.A.

Well, I am thankful to have encountered this musician through P.A. as it is another great example that there is, in fact, life in the so mentioned Berlin/West Coast electronic music schools (or as you foreigners understand as Tangerine Dream).

***3.5 PA stars.
