The Dark Side of the Moog 4 is another volume by Pete Namlook, Klaus Schulze, and Bill Laswell. And they have a little more fun with the first dark-siders, Pink Floyd. The tracks on this CD are "Three Pipers at the Gates of Dawn, Parts I-IX." This set, like the entire series, is full of deep sequences, dark overtones, and experimental sounds. Schulze, Namlook, and Laswell are e-music legends and it is always exciting when they collaborate. This disc is no exception. They are able to generate new sounds and variations on a theme. It does not get tired or tedious. This set will appeal to fans of early Tangerine Dream, Rudy Adrian, Ian Boddy, and Steve Jolliffe. Because of the trio, it is essential for e-music fans. Casual fans can pass.
