5 stars This is one of the best albums by Shulze (perhaps THE best). The compositions have very minimalistic and rythmic song structures, and Schulze succeeds in building some great moods. The track "Ludwig II. von Bayern" alone would be worth the price of the album, with its combination of catchy melodies (played by a classical string ensemble), minimalism and rock drumming. The way Schulze on this album uses layer upon layer with rythmic and melodic elements, really creates songs that keep you interested, even in the parts where, on the surface, nothing seems to be happening. The bonus track, "Objet d'Louis", is of little musical value, though. It is an old live recording of "Ludvig II. von Bayern", played with an out of tune orchestra that has not learned the song properly. But apart from that track, this album is a masterpiece.
