"This record has something for everyone. Alot of "ambient" in the true sense of the word. Some minimalist a la satie; bass and clarinet as opposed to bass and drum, some groove-trance and a bit of imaginary a great cover of colored engravings."

"So close your eyes and cross the threshold with members from Tuxedomoon, a passage to and through a Mexico both ancient and po-mo, a soundscape where an electric guitar can appear to be a waterfall and the sounds of waterfalls can resemble winds rushing through Aztec pyramids...where a serene clarinet and bass guitar piece can go down like a smooth sip of tequila, but as so often with Tuxedomoon, watch out for the haunting quality which can cause a catch in the throat...move to the undulating jauntiness of saxophones, slinky guitars and rhythm tracks by the light of the luminerias, and pass through the shadows and fog of aural dimensions.
Cross all musical borders with "Joeboy in Mexico," from world music to ambient and beyond, and listen to the sound-trek from the best film you'll "see" this year."

"Ghost Sonata is a peculiar symphony of, inter alia, violin, woodwind, classical strings, cascades of electronics, piano, tape loops and snatches of vocals fed through a vocoder. Eerie in places, jazzy in others, their songs? never fail to amaze for ingenuity. The Sonata is held together by bits of dialogue from what seems to be a film soundtrack. Beside the atmospheric, orchestral Music Number Two, other interesting pieces include The Funeral Of A Friend, An Affair At The Soiree, Licorice Stick Ostinato and Les Odalisques. But The Sonata should really be appreciated as one movement. Try it for something vastly different if you have an intrepid ear."

"Probably the finest masterpiece i ever heard, could well go for a defition of "sonata". Wonderful. I'd say it's a gotta-listen for anyone wanting to hear the 20th century innermost screams, portrayed in an exquisite (neo)classical language."

"New collection of vintage Tuxedomoon material recorded for films and staged performances, some previously unreleased on any format. The film soundtracks are Plan Delta (1986) and Fields of Honour (1983), as well as the legendary Urban Leisure Suite from 1980, and the full BRT orchestrations of three tracks from the Ghost Sonata (1982). "

"Maintains its tension very well. With its spiralling electronica, austere strings, wailing guitars and mournful saxes, you imagine it's going to collapse under the weight of its own portentiousness, but it's forever shape-shifting and stimulating" (Uncut, 9/02); "Impressionistic in ways both broodingly martial and woozily arch, layered onomatopoeic orchestrals and absurdist horns vie with minimalist piano and primitive electronics" (Glasgow Herald, 6/02); "The Ghost Sonata is intense, dramatic, chilling - as ambient as a knife in your back" (Select, 3/91); "Ghost Sonata is a tiny masterpiece of sorts, and captures Tuxedomoon's rarified, quixotic melancholy at its peak" (Q Magazine, 5/91)"

"Tuxedomoon returns stronger than ever. As far as I know this is the first Tuxedomoon album with both Blaine Reininger (who's violin and vocals dominate Half Mute and Desire) and Luc van Lieshout (the Belgian trumpet and harmonica player who joined on Holy Wars, Ship Of Fools, You). Annuncialto and Cagli Five-O have the same kind of vibe as The Waltz (Holy Wars). Dario Di Un Egoista, with Reininger on lead vocal, sounds like Paolo Conti on acid. The Island is a violin/piano piece a la Ghost Sonata. But Here 'Til X-Mas ('I'm just a carefree guy, with a song in my heart', Steven Brown croons and whistles) harks back to Half Mute or Desire, vaguely reminding me of '59 to 1'. The only element missing is Winston Tong, who is alledgedly a heroin junkie. Sad... He does get co-credits for Baron Brown."

"Dear friends,We are new music label Neo Acustica glad to present now our new release -double CD live album from the legendary Tuxedomoon band.On autumn 2000 Steven Brown, Blaine Reininger and Peter Principle left theirabodes respectively in Mexico City, Athens & New York and joined togetherwith an idea to perform the music on stage as Tuxedomoon again.Last years the members of the group were more concentrated on the studiorecording works than on live shows activity; they made only few performancesat music festivals in Italy, Greece and Israel in 1997.The musicians found themselves together in a common creative process whichhas risen to their highly acclaimed European "Half-Mute Tour 2000" whenwithin two months the musicians made great shows in Germany, Austria, Italy,Serbia and Russia. During this tour Tuxedomoon has demonstrated its bestform; better than ever before.In the middle of that tour journey the group came to St. Petersburg for thefirst time. They have never been in Russia before and played there the onlyone show. A sounding document about that unique event now is ready to comeas a limited double CD set entitled Tuxedomoon.
For Tuxedomoon this is their first full-length live official album, unliketheir previous one, the only live official release "Ten Years in One Night"which is, in fact, a compilation of recordings made on concerts in pastyears."

Coming up next : Part 3 ,Part 4 , Part 5 ,Part 6 (solo records)

Many thanks for your tribute to Tuxedomoon and the great photos. I was wondering, it it possible to scan some more photos from the booklet of "TEN YEARS IN ONE NIGHT"? There are great photos of Steven, Blaine etc. (like the photo of Peter that you have uploaded already) and this 2xCD release is very hard to find these days. Thanks.
