Pieter Uys "Toypom" (Johannesburg) - See all my reviews
(TOP 50 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME)   
This review is from: Trans-Europe Express (Rm) (Audio CD)
The theme of this enchanting work from 1977 is travel, giving the impression of a continental train ride with constantly changing scenery.

The overall style resembles their popular track Autobahn, with the same hypnotic qualities but with a wider symphonic scope. The vast melodic sweep provides its most memorable moments in songs like the lilting Europe Endlos and the title track, which reminds me of Bowie's Station to Station in its chugging rhythms.

The most explorative instrumental passages occur on Hall Of Mirrors whilst Metal On Metal and Abzug are both reprises of Trans Europa Express with industrial and dub undertones.

Franz Schubert is a beautiful melodious instrumental which recalls the atmospheric work of Peter Baumann and this magnificent album concludes with Endless Endless, a brief reprise of Europe Endless. This is electronic music at its very best, hypnotic and engaging. Almost as great as their masterpiece Radio-Activity.
