Einstein in Eden, Germany
Einstein in Eden - s/t. 1981 Polydor.
Interesting album that is truly symphonic rock - as in a symphonic band plays rock music. Side 1 is the more interesting piece that mixes epic classical soundtrack with electronic music. I could see fans of Art Zoyd appreciating this aspect of the group. Side 2 has more of a rock feel, with big fat beats approaching disco, that gets awfully close to Walter Murphy and The Big Apple Band - and genuine hokum ensues. Eventually they get back to their senses and close the album similar to how it started. But the stains are already on the carpet. Hard to get out.
The CD Reissue Wish List is a blog dedicated to progressive and psychedelic rock albums that have yet to be reissued on CD. For a more complete explanation, please see the FAQ.
THIS IS NOT A DOWNLOAD SITE! I'm going to nip that in the bud straight away. That's not what this is about, and there are no hidden links. Also, please do not ask me to rip these albums. I just simply do not have the time. I apologize in advance. This is strictly an informational blog.
Comments on any of the albums presented are indeed welcome!
Key to the Priority codes:
Priority 1: Amongst the greatest albums ever made. Almost criminal that it is not available on CD. (Gnosis 12-15; RYM 4.5 - 5.0)
Priority 2: A classic. One of the greatest albums still not on CD (Gnosis 11; RYM 4.0)
Priority 3: An excellent album. (Gnosis 10; RYM 3.5)
No Priority: The rest, which range from very good to poor and everything in between (Gnosis 9 and below; RYM 3.0 and below). Many of these albums are borderline Priority 3, and should not be presumed to be poor efforts. I had to draw the line somewhere.
