Review Type: 

After leaving Reverend Bizarre, Peter Vicar created a fourth incarnation (Orne and Lord Vicar are the other ones)with E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr combining a much more electronic sound relying less on the sound of electric guitars. The music of Lux Ohr is well embedded in the German electronic- and new age-genre reminding me very much of the work of Klaus Schulze, Edgar Frose, Kitaro and Tangerine Dream. I believe that much of the sounds on this album are derived from guitars, but must certainly be filtered through synthesizers as it does sound very spacey and much less guitar-wise. Songs are actually quite long and quite hypnotic at times making this a great head phone experience album. Overall a very warm and reflective album with a highly relaxed charm and great space-like atmospheres...
