Comment: Wings Of An Angel is a hyper-prolific Israeli composer, poet, magician, and philosopher who has issued a swarm of innumerable outings over the years. The recent one consists of one long, 46-minute composition based on spacey, reverberation-driven chords which used to hover across the aether and time. Yeah, it is intriguing to follow all those chords more carefully to verify the changes to be appeared within it at all. It might be the listener is fooled by one and the same combination of chords. Even if it could be the case, however, it would not be the case altogether, because his music seems to have a purgative sway on the listener. Musically it might remind of the aesthetic of the German kling-klang music of which some compilations from the 80s I am honoured to have on tapes. In a word, the result is overwhelming in spite of its minimal approach. Less is more. At least in this case for sure.
