Album Review

Ex-Tangerine Dream artist Christopher Franke released his second and third solo efforts simultaneously, following the successful Pacific Coast Highway. First, The London Concert, recorded live at London's Royal Apollo Theatre in October 1991. While three tracks are versions of pieces from Pacific Coast Highway, the material is mostly new, starting with "Empire of Light," awith its powerful, hypnotic entrance into Franke's spellbinding world of sonic images, combining dramatic electronic and calming acoustic sounds. "Purple Waves," at 16-plus minutes, stretches to a lofty stature of melodic orchestration. The remaining pieces fuse Franke's skilled dynamics into a forceful blend of classical electronic and contemporary sound.
