5 stars Klaus Schulze more then surpasses himself on his tenth album(thats why it is called X by the way). Each song is inspired by a great German legend, but that is not the only thing that's great about this album. Schulze is absolutely astonishing with his electronic textures, which are joined by drummer Harold Grasskopf to give the album a more down to earth feeling. Every song takes a life in itself, and there are numerous bright moments, especially on the two higlights of the album, the opener Friedrich Nietzsche and the opener of the second album Ludwig II. von Bayern. The cello brings to the latter a new level, and surrounds Schulze's mood perfectly. But really Friedrich Nietzsche is the standout of the album, with a growing complexity that can't let you cold. The moog is specially well used on that one, the great tones adds to the textures into a perfectly constructed track. After you finish listening to this album, the images will stick into your head for a long time. Schulze's true masterpiece, X is flawless and now defines the career of this true pioneer of the electronic world.
