4 stars As it can be seen on Irrlicht, KS continues his pioneering period of experimenting with organs and early synths. This album must be for many electronic music listeners very harsh and a little difficult to digest. I must say that Schulze succeeded very well on Cyborg in melting the harmony of organs with the effects of VCS 3 Synth. Let's see: CD1: Synphara starts with a very splendid organ background, then developing the effects of VCS 3 synth. Conphara is a real challenge for me, because it's so obscure and undefined. The sound is almost the same, the musical plan hardly develops into something clear. Chromengel is another challenge; perhaps it's a good point for Schulze to introduce a string orchestra;the sound is very moody, culminating in a cosmic journey and passing through a Schulze VCS 3 synth pinnacle at the end of the track. CD 2: The best track of the album is , IMO, Neuronengesang. We've got here probably, a true piece of cosmic music. Around 24 minutes, the floating atmosphere, based on excellent moog background, together with twittering sounds effects is sublime. Schulze introduces elements of percussion and the result is great. Bonus Track. I must say that But Beautiful does not fit with Cyborg, being a concert recorded a few years later. The track represents the quintessence of his golden era (the period of Moondawn and Mirage). There's 50 minutes of true cosmic journey everybody should enjoy staying comfortable on an armchair, or putting on his headphones. Overall, the album is good and excellent for someone who tries to fill in his evening.
