"Tangle Edge are a rare phenomena in contemporary rock music, an instrumental band with superb musical ability, capturing the spirit of the psychedelic era in a highly progressive blend of musics."

"a type of music that's all too rare these days, a fusion of all sorts of ethnic musics: European (Scandinavian, Mediterranean, Balkan), Eastern and Oriental, in a kind of rock music that covers the psychedelic and cosmic sounds through to heavy jazz ...Krautrock... and also lots of guitar"

is from two Italian gigs in 1991 and is closer to the sound of that Sheffield gig. This opens with EULOGY's monumental Walk Of The Frozen Ones, full of its subtle Mahavishnu meets Amon Düül II touches and a subtle ethnic spice. Caesar's Integrated Flaw, originally heard on their debut album IN SEARCH OF THE NEW DAWN is here fleshed out a little more, adding yet more of that Arabian flavour. Tracks in common with the previous disc follow: The Sun Of Tuesday, Sumerian King, Transcription... all more lively and precise here, reminding me more of Man really. Finally this disc ends with the almost heart-stopping tension of Solorgy strung out for a massive 19 minutes. (Audion #52 from 2006)

So, most welcome reissues (and thanks to Pietro for pointing out that these had become rare and unobtainable) now with improved sound and better quality duplication, of the high quality you expect from Auricle!
