Backnee Horn - Backnee Horn III (2012)

The third album from this Israeli krautrock project/band.

Two hours of electronica krautrock is what we get this time. Which in my view is one hour too many. This is a big, big chunk of music in a music style which is not the easiest to digest. Albums like this should be more punchy and shorter. 

Anyway, I have to review what is here. I do understand why this album is mostly ignored by reviewers. Two hours........ Two hours !!!

We get various soundscapes on this album which is very ambient and very much electronica. It is ambient electronica krautrock, no less.

Most of the soundscapes is fairly interesting. It is though the type of music which demands a lot from the listener and this one is too much for me. It is a decent album and a bit of a step back from this band as the music here is a bit on the lifeless and unimaginative end of the scala. A bit more focus next time and don't you ever ever ever ever ever ever make a two hours long album again.
