5 stars Timewind was my second Klauys Schulze experience. After the tranquil and relaxing Miditerranean Pads the CD proved a more dramatic voyage into the relam of spce synthesizer music.

The first part, Bayreuth Return sounds quite similar to the Old Berlin school in the likes of Tangerine Dream, with the sequencer leading a path you are most likely to follow with your ears. The music is not so varies, yet to the careful listener it is a real joyride with images of desolate places and assemblages of strange creatures springing to your mind when you only close your eyes and let the music carry you away. I have to say the track is brilliant, yet its 30 minutes and not many changes in its structure make it a bit tiring if you're not in the mood.

The second part might seem more static as it has no leading bassline, yet for me this is Klaus Schulze at his best: The music begins very slowly with various dark sounds and noises and then we have a leading synth cue on which Klaus Schulze adds more layers of synths to produce an astonishing stereo effects somewhere halfway through the track. This track really makes me go weak at my ankles every time I lsiten to it. The sounds make me think of a tunnel of sounds into which you are sucked (similar to the experience you get while listening to TD's Rubycon). The stereo effects on this CD (and I only have the early not-remastered version) are simply awesome. The best thing is however that the effect is not only a climax, it continues with new sounds and layers swirling around like a rain of sounds, until the soundtunnel releases you which makes you feel it was a timewarp into which you were thrown.

If you close your eyes - it's the music that decides where to take you.

Magnificent album!
