Centrozoon - Lovefield [Un-Sung Records - 2007]

Centrozoon is a improvised collaborative project between  guitarist Markus Reuter and keyboardist Bernhard Woestheinrich with Lovefield been their sixth album of soundscapes that hovers in-between electronica, ill at easy ambience and guitar scaping.

It all starts off in very creepy and uneasy waters with the track  Field one which unwinds an wonderful feeling of building tension and hazy macabre dread. The electronics and gitar over and over build up a feeling of  texture, depth and something more tangible / structured before slipping away off once more in out of focus dread. Giving this the feeling of been half awake still rattled by bizarre and bloody nightmares- the pair playing wonderful of against each other to build up such an fearful vibe. Track two entitled Field two  with a simlar feeling of uneasy, but here it has the feeling of a shadowy funfair vibe  about it- were the rides slowly move along on their own. Creepy church organ dread is weaved and sickened more by Reuter's sinster guitar wonderings. 

Sadly the rest of the album seems to slip into rather medico guitar and keyboard nodderling, seemly loosing the feeling of focus and uneasy in the first two tracks. At time it almost dips into sounding downright amateurish, as Reuter rather painful and un-inspired solo's over the seemly random keyboard pre-sets of  Woestheinrich plodding tones. It just feels like they ran out of stream and ideas but had to fill up to album length.

A firm and impressive start with 20 or some minutes of very effective filmatic uneasy thats sadly finshed off with twenty minutes of  aimless filler- they really should have just released the first two tracks as an ep instead.
