Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-12-14
German electronic experimental/ambient duo’s excellent 3rd album from 1974. Herr Rodelius und Herr Mobius’ pieces seem to float in the air with a continuum of spacey electronic wonder. Michael Rother of Kraftwerk and Neu produced this, so any similarities are both coincidental and actual. Fantastic stuff that (along with their friend Brian Eno)seems to have lead the way to “down tempo” and “chill out” music.

(((((1)))) Slow but progressing, electronic/percussion mix. Verrry nice!
(((((2))))) Airy and rhythmic like Suicide a few years before the fact. Lots of “doot-doot” “whow-whow, eveh” sounds. ☺
(((3))) Slow, perculating, bubbly, minimal oddness. Kind of interesting.
(((((4)))) Gorgeous layers of electronics, nice little repeating cycles o’ sound.
((((5)))) Sort of dark electronics with a Martian cockroach hissing. More varied and interesting later on but always WEIRD!
(((((6)))) Another “electronic popcorn” or “coffee machine” beat with a bunch of higher pitched tones over it. Thoroughly enjoyable.
((7))) Guitar twang, random farting around. Probably was a good idea on paper but not when put to music.
(((((8)))) Cascading, twinkly ‘lil periwinkles of chilled goodness!
(((9))) Wind up toy beat via proto-techno tempos. Silly but kinda fun.
((((10))) Driving “motorik” styule with minimal Asian- styled percussion.
