NOETICS Noetics (Psychedelic/Space Rock, 1999)

Review by wiz_d_kidd — Noetics is the first eponymous studio release of a five-piece instrumental band that formed in
Germany in 1997. They refer to their genre as Neo-Krautrock, but their musical style has elements of
psychedelic, space, stoner, electronica, and funky jazz. Frequent festival performers, their live
shows have been said to transform the audience into a "collective dance hypnosis" with support from
many guest musicians, fire and light shows, and tight improvisations.

RUSH Kiel Auditorium, St Louis, MI, February 14 1980 (Heavy Prog, 2015)

Review by TenYearsAfter — "FIRST REVIEW OF THIS ALBUM"

Only 15 ratings and no reviews? That begs for justice! This is a live recording from the Red Vox Label, in the serie
Historical FM Broadcastings. It captures a Rush gig in the USA, shortly after the release of their Permanent Waves
album (early 1980). The recording is at the level of a high quality bootleg and the running time is 73 minutes. The 8-
page booklet (I own the CD version) contains an interesting interview in the English rock magazine Sounds (March
1980), Rush telling about their success (Canadian awards and Best Band In The World by UK magazine Sounds) and
the change of their musical direction.
