Mythos – Dreamlab

12 Dec

Similar to the works of several other fellow artists on the Kosmische Musik label, the album develops a science fiction concept around the story of an extraterrestrial visitor on a journey to Earth. Dreamlab is predominantly made up of peaceful and relaxed music. The metre is often determined by echoes from flutes and guitar riffs backed by expansive mellotron arrangements. The song “Expeditions” was used as the soundtrack for the film Die Superspinne.

Release: DS127f

Source: SQ encoded CD

Process: SQ*Final

    I like this. It’s kind of between Pink Floyd and Ozric Tentacles to my mind, which isn’t surprising given the other poster’s mentions of Krautrock, Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze. Lots of action in the quad mix, plenty going on in the rears.

    The first time I listened to this I wasn’t really in the mood for it, I had stuff to do and wasn’t in the mood for just listening. The second listen I made time and did nothing but listen, and this albume definitely repaid that.

    Yes, SQ-Final was replaced almost imediatly with SQ*Final. The difference is small, but i relaised it was possible to make the decoding 100% accurate rather than the 95% that was possible with SQ-Final.

    Whether you'll hear the difference, i can't really say

    Hmm. On the back cover of the previous version is written: “Decoded using SQ-Final ” I understand that it was a mistake and because quickly disappeared from the tracker.

    No, as designated by th 'f' at the end of the number, this release was decoded using SQ*Final, like all the SQ re-releases

    Is it the same version as before (ds127)?

    Never heard of them, but thanks for posting this OD…I like it! For those of you who like Krautrock, or have adventurous ears, give this release a try. “The career of Mythos has been similar to that of Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, also from West Berlin. They began working as a rock band in the line up of guitar, drums, bass, keyboards and vocals. They released their first record on the cult label OHR, and they later switched from rock to electronic music.”
