4 stars Timewind is the album that got Klaus Schulze a lot of recognition, and is his most accessible work that I've listened to. One difference on this album versus the previous albums is that Timewind seems to have a quicker pace, especially the first track.

"Bayreuth Return" features some hypnotic synthesizer lines coupled with high-pitched galactic sounds, and it all really comes together over a no-percussion beat that is easy to move your head to. This track seems like his most Tangerine Dream-esque track, and is probably the best Schulze recording for closing your eyes and taking a cosmic journey through your mind's eye.

With sounds of sirens in the distance, "Wahnfried 1883" leads into a spacey, otherworldly wind combined with a sombre synthesizer lullaby that progresses slowly as the wind gets louder, stronger, violent. There's no percussion on this track, but there is a mid-paced beat that never really becomes established and has the same head-bobbing effect and tempo.

When listening to this album versus prior albums, it's really not hard to see why most people prefer this album as one of his finest. I can't say that I don't agree. This, combined with Mirage and X, make up the most essential beginner's guide to Klaus Schulze.
