4 stars Notorious figure in psych-acoustic-electronica and in kosmische music, Conrad Schnitzler is certainly less known than his old partners from Tangerine Dream (Edgard Froese and Klaus Schulze during the recording sessions of electronic meditation). His work is underestimated if we compare it with the fruitful career of Klaus Schulze. Nevertheless when Schulze didn't success to renew his own genre, Conrad Schnitzler always published albums with new compostional ideas, new sounds and with a strong respect for Art as a freedom of creation and a way to transcend the human soul. Grun is among my favourite Schnitzler's albums from the 70's / 80's era (next to Rot, Blaud, Gelb and Swharz). It contains two intriguing spaced out minimal epics with catchy electro-hypno rhythms and circular, droning melodical fragments. Der Reise Und Seine Frau is a neurotic soundscape featuring ghostly, oppressively dark atmospheres and a nice orchestration of electronic, almost groovy pulsations. Bis Die Blaue Blume Bluht is a micro-tonal, minimal electronic epic that sounds like a semi-ambient version of Kraftwerk's urbanistic-electro pop. It also admits a comparison with late 70's gentle, melodic electronic essays from Cluster. This is almost a classic. It represents a great facet of Schnitzler's musical personality.
