    Satin Whale ~ 1974 ~ Desert Places
    genre: heavy, prog related
    country: germany
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 43'27"  size: 388 mb
     
    Crack In The Cosmic Egg:
    A late addition to the first wave of Krautrock, Satin Whale were no doubt influenced by many of the bands that had preceded them: Jane, Sahara, Os Mundi, et al., blending powerful rock ballads with dramatic instrumentals that featured classical and jazz elements, and a notable comparison with Camel and Canterbury bands, in the use of keyboards and flute.
    Their debut on Brain DESERT PLACES is a fine example of this genre, featuring lengthy tracks with surging instrumentals, complex arrangements and quite an individual song style. The strong keyboards, flute and saxophone, all add up to an impressive concoction.
    Moving to Nova, subsequent albums followed this tradition in their own unique style, although LOST MANKIND is the only other studio album that comes close to DESERT PLACES, be it all the more highly produced, with backing singers that do take a bit of getting used to. The double live WHALECOME is also notable, as it showcased much of their best material, and presented later songs with much more spontaneity and invention, not least though some original new tracks and the lengthy and stunning rock arrangement of "Hava Nagila".
    Excepting the film soundtrack album DIE FAUST IN DER TASCHE, the later albums, which do contain some good tracks, are generally more mainstream song oriented rock.
    Their final album we either haven't encountered or have forgotten about, but with Barry Palmer, from the mid-1970's incarnation of Triumvirat in the band, I don't hold-out much hope for it.

    Rousseau ~ 1980 ~ Flower in Asphalt
    genre: prog

    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 37'11"  size: 223 mb
    misc.: 2003
     
    ProgArchives:
    Excellent band from Germany who has 5 great albums in his discography. Their music can be described like an hybrid between CAMEL and NOVALIS. Music is very rich, with melodic guitar, flutes and a romantic touch in their lyrics.
    ROUSSEAU were formed in 1977 by Ali Pfeffer, Georg Hutchmacher, Peter Stutz, Ulla Boos and Cristoph Huster. First album "Flower in Asphalt" was released in 1980 (after the change of two members in the original line-up), with a notable success in Germany. Three years later, the second album "Retreat" was issued, but not with the same success than the previous, because in those years in Germany new musical waves stole attention of prog rock. In 1987, ROUSSEAU released their last album from the 80´s, "Square The Circle", with line-up´s changes again and good reviews, but not with a great success.
    After this, members of ROUSSEAU start to write songs for some side projects and this was the "dead" of ROUSSEAU... but in 2002, 16 years after their last studio album, ROUSSEAU joined again and issued another album - a very good album with a sound more classical than the previous and with some very good instrumental passages. This album was called "At The Cinema", and was published by French label "MUSEA", who also re-released their back catalogue. ~
