The first impression the music on “A Thousand Times” left on me is that it contains many beautiful TD references of the ‘80s.
Recorded between January to November 2009, “A Thousand Times” nicely follows up on Johannes’ previous release “Instant City”.
Together they create great emotional and melodic atmospheres, expertly displayed on e.g. “Monochrome”, “Kiterunner”, “Stigma” and “Blueshift”, but also very heart-felt and intimate as heard on “Funeral Tears”. In addition, hints of “Le Parc” are clearly heard on the sweeping and joyful track “Abacus”.
To sum things up, on all levels “A Thousand Times” makes cool album containing many good old Tangerine Dream references.
