Camera cavort in the magic triangle with the edges Spacerock, Krautrock and Psychedelic and look beyond them. It's the same on Remember I Was Carbon Dioxide. The Berlin trio knows about the footsteps they are following. Small tributes to the German pioneers of the 60s and 70s included. The opener "From The Outside" is Spacerock light, also "Parhelion" touches the trance à la The Orb, but then changes into a brash, hypnotic groove with creaking guitars. A stoic rhythm - accompanied by guitar drones - reminds of new! "Haeata" is wonderfully tough, while in "Ozymandias" the groove comes to a complete standstill. Harsh, rough sounds are an important part of "To The Inside" (with brilliant synth escapades) and "Vortices" (which begins gently and harmlessly). The twelve tracks on "Remember I Was Carbon Dioxide" are amazingly variable, vary sounds and moods, yet form a homogeneous flow. If they continue like this, Camera are well on the way to establishing themselves in the top psych league.
