Philharmonie - The Elephant Bell-Ringers (Les Elephants Carillonneurs) CD

SKU Rune 54
On their 1st Cuneiform release, Philharmone are an immensely talented guitar trio, featuring Frdric L'Epe of Shylock. Tight, well-written, pointillistic compositions, performed by 3 guitar masters. Very rich & very ''progressive'' too, with lots of Fripp-ish fuzz lead lines snaking about. ''Technically remarkable...'' -Guitar Player. ''Conceptually, it suggests what an inspired meeting of Steve Reich and King Crimson might sound like...masterfully weaving together lush melodies, minimalist tendencies and heavy rock overtones.''-Innerviews.

I'm not sure how one album can be so beautiful, complex, intelligent and emotional all at once, but somehow Philharmonie did it on this album. If you only know Philharmonie from later CDs like Rage or Nord, there is a more introspective side to the band that's best heard here and on their mega-rare debut, Beau Soleil. Very highly recommended.
