5 stars This is truly one of the greatest electronic albums ever made and definitely the best place to start exploring the wonderful world of Conrad Schnitzler. Electric Garden is a masterpiece of atmospherics, reverberating drips in the canyons of your mind . Overloaded harmonisers and delays build to an orgasmic rush of nitrous oxide clangs that can seriously warp your mind.

I first heard this track on a tape from 1984, by which time it had become popular in Italy and Ibiza, and become an early chillout classic. His home-made synthesizers give his music and originality that you can't buy off the shelf. The five bonus tracks are all worth having as well. Like Gottsching's E2-E4 this is a missing link in the chain between Krautrock and Ambient Electronica. I played this to many DJs including Tsuyoshi - who then put it on a mix CD for Issey Miyake's fashion show!
