Expresso II finds Pierre Moerlen's Gong at their peak. Like their previous studio release, Gazeuse, the album is instrumental, the music is very polished, the sound very clean. Vibes and xylophone dominate on this album, somewhat reminiscent of the sound Zappa achieved through Ruth Underwood on One Size Fits All just three years earlier. The first two tracks, Heavy Tune and Golden Dilemma, are the highlights here, partially due to the fact that the rest of the cuts all blend together and sound quite similar. Album Name Expresso II.

Allan Holdsworth, Mick Taylor and Darryl Way are among the guest musicians that supplement the core of the band. This album is also Hansford Rowe's debut on bass, but the last appearance by Mireille Bauer who first appeared on. Compra vinili e CD e completa la tua Gong . Released: Dec 2005. Label: Emi Catalogue. This 1978 album has just about everything you need - provided that's vibraphone madness directed by a crew of long-haired progressive rock types and one ex-Rolling Stone, Mick Taylor. The riffs are heavy, as are the rubbery basslines, ridiculously complex arrangements, and overall synth weirdness. Jon Pruett. About This Album. Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music13
