“Expansion” is the debut cd of Brendan Pollard, one half of the vintage band Rogue Element, which released the much acclaimed album “Premonition” last year.
In their music they use the original Tangerine Dream sound effects frame dating from 1975, which now also has been applied in a further improved manner.
For example, there’s this chilling bunch of male choir mellotron featured on the second track “Toxic Blue”, which is the absolute highlight of the album. While listening to this grand music you sense Brendan is going all the way, mirroring the energetic sequencing of TD’s “Ricochet” in the second part of the track.
By all means, this is a top-notch album for anybody that enjoys the great music of the retro Berliner School.
