3 stars Moondawn is one of Schulze's more popular albums but I find it slightly less then any other album of the 1975-1978 period when every synth that Klaus touched turned into gold.

With Schulze's big moog in action, it is sonically a big improvement over Timewind. Floating has all KS ingredients in place: lush and ambient sounds, entrancing sequences, swirling moog solos and a big finale. Excellent percussion as well. Depending on my mood, it sometimes sounds too repetitive. It's exceptionally good still, but more of this and better was yet to come.

Mindphaser starts off very moody and sinister but halfway in, it turns into something entirely different when the drums kick in. It's not bad but somehow it comes off as a failed experiment to merge Schulze's electronic sounds with the jagged and noisier approach of kraut rock.
