The German rockers with a penchant for spacy, overflowing 70s jams have remained true to themselves and still offer herbaceously improvised rock. However, with larger merger shares than before. On the first real new studio work since "Elephant Moon" (2008), Space pays homage to Debris Zenobia, a glorious ruler of the Roman Orient. The cover is adorned - beside a naked Venus lying on the ground - with the ruins of their ancient throne city Palmyra. The title of the first piece is the same as well. The organ rumbles, the guitar creaks. But often the other famous tracks such as "Cloudwalker", the two-part "Creation" and the title track bring instrumental records by Santana such as "Caravanserei" or "Borboletta" to mind. The rhythmically flexible guitar, a lot of crystal-clear e-piano, organ, of course, but also some swashbuckling synths create exciting, almost music archaeological sound sculptures on a firm rhythm foundation of drums, percussion and bass in the no man's land between Space and Krautrock as well as, what suits them best, said Fusion Jazz.
