The then current lineup of the band (1978) had already evolved and included one Eberhard Bronner on drums, who is in fact on Reise Nach Ixtlan. Both are absolute must owns for the serious Krautrock fusion collector.
This second album, titled "Moira (aka Reise Nach Ixtlan)", is also a mystery, albeit for a different reason. Indeed, it is hard to believe it was recorded in the mid-80's, a time when almost many rock bands were abusing those new electronic drums and tinny sounding digital keyboards. For this album oozes Moog and funky Hammond organ like the good old albums of the 70's. I have heard both Moira albums and Crazy Countdown is excellent but this second album is a significant improvement because it's a more cohesive musical statement. Crazy Countdown features a series of shorter instrumental pieces that are good on their own but don't have a consistent sound and so it's more like a collection of musical sketches rather than an album that holds together as a unit. Not so with Reise Nach Ixtlan ? the first three pieces on this album contain some incredible fusion.
Moira - The Daughters of Bristol. Mirage of moira - Twilight Ophera. C4 on the Seafloor - Moira. Dreams Ov the Duat - Moira. Crazy Countdown - MOIRA. Always Later - MOIRA.
