Keyboard meister Rahn's main gig back in the day was promulgating the syrupy rich sympho formalism of cult prog rockers Novalis, but he certainly managed to cough up a delightfully unexpected hairball with this one and only solo venture of his. Rahn's sound on Solo Trip is obviously indebted to Japan's Yellow Magic Orchestra and shares much with others that have flown this sorta suave yet candied and distinctly library-like banner ala Alex Cima, Christian Von Eschersheim, Angel Rada and Happy The Man keyboardist Kit Watkins' work circa his first solo outing but Rahn's work here also captures something of that very French continuum of spacily thematic synthy library sounds that extends from Alain Gorageur's soundtrack to La Planete Sauvage and on to Bernard Fevre and Claude Peraudin.
