Twogether - A Couple Of Times (1973 German Prog Rock Psych Jazzy)


MAIS UM DA SÉRIE GARDEN OF DELIGHTS!! A BANDA É UM DUO DE TECLADOS E BATERIA!! A SONORIDADE É DENSA, ATMOSFÉRICA, GROOVY-SPACEY, IMPROVISAÇÃO DE PIANOS JAZZY E ALGUMAS BALADAS PSYCH!! É UM MOSAICO DE ESTILOS E INFLUÊNCIAS MUSICAIS!! UMA VIAGEM IMAGINATIVA ATRAVÉS DE JAM SESSIONS COM LIVRES IMPROVISAÇÕES!! VENENO ALEMÃO RARO E RECOMENDADO!!

A Couple of Times is an exubberant-powerfully tripped out jazzy-electronic trip. With bands as Kollektiv, Kraan, Out of Focus, Xhol (...) Twogether represent the jazziest side of krautrock. Their sound is rather atypical with reminiscence of notorious epic symphonic keyboardists (I'm thinking notably to early Keith Emerson with The Nice). A couple of Times is a patchwork of musical styles and influences, an imaginative trip through coulourful, soulful and freely improvised jam sessions. This is mostly instrumental. 

The album starts with a collection of groovy-spacey electronic pieces built on endless keys / grand piano improvs and jazzy drum sets, admitting discreet acid pop-ish vocals. The album contains some basic-moody psych pop ballads (I look around, Meet me Every Day ...) featuring warm organic chords. Bolero is an epic spaciousness, including dense buzzing keyboards and majestic-desperate-heroic melodies. Fusion closes the album with the cloudy-abstract electronic poetry called Fusion. Despite that it was recorded during the 70's it sounds more like mellow-psych combos of the 60's. A Couple of Times remains a deliciously psychedelic, jazzy, neo-classical orientated musical trip. A little classic and a must have for all prog-heads of the first era. [Review by philippe]
