Product Description

Amazon.ca

Warning: this disc has nothing to do with the Rat Pack or $4.99 buffet lunches. Joerg Burger and Mike Ink (Wolfgang Voigt to his family) are two Germans for whom the sound of Las Vegas is what you hear if you put your ear real close to an air conditioner. Burger and Ink use Vegas as shorthand for Western-flavored titles ("The Jealous Guy from Memphis," "Love Is the Drug [Paris Texas]") and Americana in general ("Elvism"). But this Americana is remote, repetitive, abstract. Here disembodied electronics pulse in the ether, sometimes building up to a steady rhythm--as on "Bring Trance Back (to Las Vegas) [Blue Hotel]"--but usually circling around absent-mindedly and in an oddly soothing way. Twenty years after Tangerine Dream, the German space-music program is back in service. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

4.0 out of 5 stars Ahead of its time, nice work Feb. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
In an attempt to capture their vision of the future of the genre, this Deutsch duo embarked on a very trancey trip that honors the name of the genre for its ability to almost hipnotize you with their pulsed beats and loops. Without becoming repetitive they sit somewhere comfortably between a downbeat trance and and upbeat ambient. Listening to it six years after it first came out, it doesn't sound dated, which says a lot, considering how easily some works in the electronica domain fall out of synch with the times.

I think this is excellent music for having on as background, but I believe it also has other merits. If you don't like repetitive or trance-inducing music, this may not be your cup of tea... but if you like rhythms and patterns, you can immerse yourself in this CD. Certain aspects of the instrumentation mutate/change througout each cut, and the changes are subtle enough that they may not noticed without careful listening. In some of the cuts, a drumbeat will change slightly over a keyboard pattern that doesn't change, then one keyboard motif will gradually fade as another takes over. The music creeps gradually, but it's also stuff to which you can tap your toe.
This might be dangerous music for some people to listen to while driving because if you get involved with it you might forget what you're doing. For me, it makes great soundtrack music for night driving in the city, as well as driving across vast, open spaces such as the desert.
