2 stars What I said for "Zeit" goes the same for "Atem", only this album is slightly easier to digest, because it is much shorter (originally a single LP) and has what seems to be four distinct "compositions". But do not expect any revolutionary change: this is still electronic space hum without any rythms or melodies. The best parts are: "Fauni Gena" with odd sound effects and eerie ambient atmosphere resembling the walk through the dark forest filled with strange beasts and birds, although a much better similar attempt was done earlier by PINK FLOYD on "Ummagumma"; and "Wahn" with some electroniclly-processed vocal samplings and mellotron noise. Still, quite an impenetrable experience and again for devout electronic fans only.
