4 stars Actually , I have never seen this sleeve for this disc. The one I know is in the line of Timewind and Blackdance (representing some man having dived either in the atmosphere or water)! Not only is this remark valid for the artwork but also for the music.

If Irrlicht is probably more important historically , because it came out first, Klaus schulze is reaching fast his maturity with this album. Somehow the music is very similar to Tangerine Dream (the group he helped found with Edgar Froese, but left after the first album), but you can also plainly recognize that this album is clearly a Schulze Oeuvre. By this time , the use of sequencers were relatively common (as with Eno , Jarre and Oldfield) but this was still clearly adventurous music.

Today , with modern technology , it is easy to write-off such album as saying that they were able to do this because they were the first to own such synthetysers , but back then , only a truly adventurous person (such as the ones mentioned above) could've pulled such great sounds. Not as excellent as Timewind or Blackdance but still much worth a spin.
