4 stars It is of course useless, but I have always wondered what if Klaus had not left TD? One of the answer is that all of these geniuses together would have recorded superb things together. Anyway, they did it but each ones on their side.

I feel like this album is less spacey than "Irrlich" but more catchier than "Cyborg". The opening epic "Totem" though features some beautiful background keyboards melodies, even if in the forefront the pulsating beat is somehow too much of the same but these sounds were quite innovative at the time of release. Yet, very similar to TD.

But for the ones (like me) who can't get enough of this type of music, I'm sure that all of them would agree that this "Totem" demonstrates enough pleasure to satisfy their appetite.

The final part is quite moving and could have lasted for another couple of minutes to my taste.

The similarities with who you know is even more evident during the rich and beautiful "Mental Door". Same sort of hypnotic approach (some will say repetitive), which is the essence of both branches of this family of musicians. If you like it, you like it?and these sounds filled my heart with joy. There is nothing I can do about it!

To experience such cold beauty is amazing. Be prepared for a very special journey while listening to this album. Four stars.
