3 stars Dune is an unexpected dip in the ever steady quality level that Klaus established in his career till that time. Especially so when compared to the masterpieces he released in 1977 and his excellent and widely praised 'X' from 1978.

The title track is still quite strong. It returns to the more abstract soundscapes of his beginnings, only this time with brighter and more dynamic sonic textures. But I can't say that the inspiration flows equally strong as it used to. The track fails to build up a tension that is compelling enough to entertain me for 30 minutes. It makes for good background music but hasn't yet fully captured my attention. But I'm quite new to this album and I expect this track will further grow on me.

The second track features vocals of Arthur Brown and is the real let-down. The idea is interesting enough and Arthur Brown is a great singer but the simple rhythmic sequence and the recitative vocals turn it into a very dreary experience.

In the 80's and all other decades since, Schulze has continued to create strong music, but the days when he couldn't hit a wrong note came to an end with this album. Interesting to see I'm the 9th reviewer in a row to give this album 3 stars. A most unusual unanimity!
