4 stars Grun seems much more polished that Schnitzler's previous color-related albums, and maybe more accessible too. Grun starts where Gelb left off - experimental electronic music only slightly influenced by the '80s in finer production quality. The tracks on this album are a bit more accessible in that they each follow a clearly established percussive beat steadily throughout, but still remain experimental at their core, thus being much more interesting than nearly all of the electronic artists active during the '80s.

"Der Riese Und Seine Frau" utilized the techno-tribal percussive elements from earlier albums, but is coupled with glistening, shiny cascades of beautifully polished sounding synth melodies. Very spacey and celebratory.

"Bis Die Blaue Blume Blüht" is the more experimental of the two tracks. The percussive elements are kept to a minimum, using mostly subdued bassy thumps instead of full on percussive assault. Abstract space sounds and zapping frequencies in a kind of Jamaican dub rhythm are the main focus of this track. It's very relaxed, but also optimistic and fun.

Compared to nearly anything else from the '80s, Conrad Schnitzler reigns supreme. His work is much more consistent than many similar artists, and he seems to show much more integrity in his work. Grun is a great album, but not quite as wonderful as Blau or Rot.
