Ashra - Blackouts (1977)

Fronted by guitarist Manuel Gottsching ,Ashra was his solo project continuation from the previous classic Ashra Tempel. This album  features only himself on all instruments.

This is mostly a very enjoyable mix of spacey/ rhyhtmic guitars and sequencers with mostly short tracks. The lengthier Lotus stretches things out and on occasion resembles Tangerine Dream.

All in all a very effective album and definitely one of the best. Especially recommended to anyone who loves the works of say Tangerine dream.
