Despite taking off in a psychedelic fashion, Perge has been able raise the bar even higher in this next, fully succeeded attempt to celebrate the analogue Berlin School sound of ‘80’s TD.
As a matter of fact, on “Pleonasms” Matthew Stringer and Graham Getty go all the way with great sequencer combos, wavering melodic tapestries and captivating solos drenched in live atmospherics, bursting of life on “Calybration” and “Atemporal Dispersion” especially.
A tender moment is addressed on the beautifully rendered “Soliloquy” with some evocative piano reproduced various excerpts of TD’s music such as “Song of the Whale”. The epilogue “Cool Sands of Vermillion” is also the most upbeat track of the album with some cracking sequencing along soaring and upfront leads.
As Mr Stringer already commented, the whole outcome simply captures the vibe and excitement that existed at TD’s classic ‘80’s gigs. “Pleonasms” simply deserves both thumbs up!
