4 stars The best M Gottsching's album (from the post A.R.T era). After a first exploration in ambient / repetitive guitar patterns with "inventions for electric guitar" the name Ashra Tempel turned to Ashra for the Virgin label. Musically the central interest is now clearly based on radical cosmic / synth meditative sounds. On this album the sonomontage of synthesised atmospheric sounds and the traces of emotional expressions are very near to Klaus Schulze's analog synth period (Moondown / Timewind...). Free rock improvisations have gone to let the place to powerful controlled meditative guitar / synth sections. A tremendous electronic, experimental synth album which represents the best signature of German's late Krautrock days. A standard of cosmic / relaxed prog music!!!
