CD Reviews

Their best album
Dean Winiarski | Milwaukee, WI United States | 04/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have to differ with those who prefer the older albums over this one. The older albums are great, but when it come to pure GROOVE this album jams above the rest! Let's be frank: this is a completely different band than the older group. And this album is their only masterpiece.The drum and bass groove throughout the album is just STUNNING! And this is matched by the tightly virtuistic piano, organ and sinth playing of Fritz. The singing is beautiful, and the songs are just wonderful. Yes, the thematic material is stretched a little, but Fritz's themes are SO GOOD, I don't mind the restatement!Moreover, this recording is AMAZING considering the technology in '77. What blew my mind is that this CD remaster actually IMPOROVED upon it even more!Sure...get Sparticus, Illusions, but that's a different band. GET THIS TOO!"
I like track no1, 3,6,very much,if I forget "Brain salad..."

"Well I can't deserve the maximum rate, as for the presence of a typical british progrock-like musical breakthrough ,including the choice of the sounds, too much similar to "Brain salad surgery" by ELP and some "Emerson-like" pompous style as well. Naturally They are german, but it doesn't seem...anyway track no 3, track no 4 and the major part of the following compositions as well, are well worth checking out (listen to their splendid piano intro and the following insert of their rhytmical sections as well of track no 3, where the time signatures and also a lot of magical interplay create a splendid symphonic "wall". The recording was quite good and make this album recommended to all the fans of the best classic symphonic prog, based upon a keyboard oriented trio!!"
Great Remaster - [Bad] Copy Protection

"After waiting for years to get Triumvirat on CD, I finally get my chance. Purchased Pompeii, Old Loves Die Hard, and Illusions on a Double Dimple.
All sound great.
All have ... copy protection! Which means I can't put in my 12 hour work days and enjoy them from my computer. Thanks a lot."
