Nino's No Identity





This is a great little guitar-driven album from Germany which obviously is utterly unknown.  The sides are divided into Red (presumably a) and Blue (b).  Most progressive compositions are on the latter, and there are some real beauties.  His style really reminds me of the best days of David Gilmour in Pink Floyd with his Les Paul sharp like an exacto knife in its pure and sustained sounds that are hallmarks of that maker (though I thought Gilmour played Fenders, I could be wrong).

Note the utterly abhorrent presence of a cover version of  the criminally awful song "Lady Madonna" on side 1.

I have, however, personally played the B2 track called Raining something like thirty-seven times since I first bought this record from the growing bin, and I still could listen to it some more:





The beauty of this song lies in its many modulations, clearly.


To give you an idea of what I mean by David Gilmour-like, listen to his absolutely soaring and mathematically pure solo slide guitar sound on B3 Pfaueninsel (Peacock Island):





Do peacocks love Pink Floyd too? I should hope so: Dark Side of the Moon is usually rated one of the greatest albums in all rock history, and for good reason.
