Ammerland
Heinz Froehling & Gerd Fuehrs

I used to be really into this album.
The guitar work in conjunction with the keyboard synthesizer really enthralled me back in the day.
As I’m listening to this today, now, in this era… I’m not too enthused.
It is nice music.
Pleasant even.
But rather milk toasty.
Pablum.
It is easy listening.
New age music. Emotionless music that belays emotion.
This was released before the whole New Age music took hold for a brief period and it is a rather good disk of the genre but it does not really work now except perhaps as incidental music as you are dusting the house on a quiet Saturday afternoon.
Or at a funeral parlour visiting a semi-hip friend.
