Prog Reviewer
3 stars Von Deyen doesn't hide the fact that this album is a Klaus Schulze homage; the cover art clears any lingering doubts. As a pastiche, Sternzeit is admirable, and in particular, side one is clever. Of his first three albums (the only three with which I'm familiar), this is probably Von Deyen's best.

Taken as an attempt to add to the mid-to-late-1970s Schulze catalogue, there's not much to recommend here, given the volume of original Schulze material from the period. This has become even more true since the release of the La Vie Electronique series, of which volumes 3 through 7 cover this same era. From this point of view, Sternzeit seems completely unnecessary.

But taken on its own, Sternzeit is not a bad album, and is enjoyable in parts. I'd recommend it to those unfamiliar with Schulze and interested in Berlin-school electronic music.
