3 stars A conceptual moody / highly atmospheric music in relation to the S.F novel "Dune" written by Frank Herbert. This album belongs to the last years of Schulze's instrumentalism in analog synth and others vintage keyboards. Consequently the keyboard instruments are similar to the electronic choir or the "fantomatic" orchestral sounds we can hear on the classic "X". The long epic self titled composition represents impressionistic, cold and deeply celestial electronic harmonies associated to cello parts. It creates a very efficient ambient atmosphere but the inspiration and variety are not in honour all the track long. Not as imaginative and as scary that the hypnotic sounds ever created by the man behind his machines. The second track combines an electronic / spacey pulse to cello delicate sounds and Arthur Brown's voice on recitations and vocals. Unfortunately, Arthur's Brown fantastic voice remains too discreet, perceptible in the distance. The last minutes of "Shadows of ignorance" are very tortured, accompanied by Arthur Brown's plaintive, very melancholic voice.
