4 stars I'm glad I have discovered Eberhard Schoener. For many I'm sure the name came up from Police fans as he did record a couple of albums in the late '70s with the Police boys (Sting included). In 1974 he released Meditation, which is far from the albums he did with the Police. Here the album concentrates on weird eerie drones. To my ears this sounds like how Tangerine Dream's Zeit would have ended up like if geared for inner space rather than outer space. I also get reminded a bit of Popol Vuh circa Affenstunde. This album was obviously meant for meditation, but this isn't some insipid New Age meditation album, anyone who prefers that type of music will find this rather unsettling. It seems that Eberhard Schoener keeps doing something very different from album to album from the Police trying prog (Flashback, Video-Magic), to gamelan (Bali-Agung) to church music (Trance-Formation) all in a strange electronic setting, and of course this album. If you enjoy Zeit or Affenstunde, give this a try
