4 stars This record announces the end of the Schmoelling-era (1980-1985): Johanness Schmoelling is replaced here by Paul Haslinger. The new musician definitely brings a new sound, very piano and floating New Age oriented. Underwater Sunlight is an excellent album, having a fresh New Age sound, absolutely not linear nor monotonous. The overall sound is absolutely crystal clean and rather echoed. Edgar Froese makes a brilliant return to form by playing excellent hard rock guitar solos and aggressive rythmic ones. The first side contains 4 short tracks, very accessible and addictive; there are some very good programmed drums. The second side contains 2 long tracks, VERY floating, fresh, having many pleasant percussive melodic sequencers.

Rating: 4.5 stars
