3 stars There's a direct filiation between Wolgang Riechmann unique album called Wunderbar and Dusseldorf 70's motoric electro pop (from Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf...). Wunderbar is made of short robotic electronic ambiences covered by static voices and really efficient, catchy melodies. The music reveals a fidelity with Kraftwerk's classic Trans Europe Express period with its almost dancing, post modern mechanical electronic songs. Wunderbar opens the album with a retro-futurist dancing theme. Abendlicht is a much more serious, vibrant & cerebral theme including long floating synthesized strings, slow-cardiac hypno pulses. This is a superb catchy sci-fi electronic composition within a rather moody, dark path (simiar to Adelbert Von Deyen in his first and second efforts). Weltweit is an astral, moving electronic composition featuring common like cosmic melodies and endless running arpeggios (in the genre of Tangerine Dream's Virgin era). Silberland is an immensely powerful and spaced out composition that could be written by Edgar Froese. The album closes with the enchanting, surrounded abstract electronic drama called traumzeit. This album is highly recommended for fans of 70's Berlin and Dusseldorf's experimental electronic underground.
