2 stars An other melodic ambient guitar work by Michael Rother in solo (NEU!). Very repetitive this album is in the vein of his previous efforts, always with its peaceful, emotional sense of musical expression. Nothing really new expected the material which is "colder" / and more electronic than before. The guitar melodies are more discreet than before and are progressively replaced by synth manipulations. A few tracks have real similarities to "Katzenmusik" minimalist / ambient style, but generally it is less captivating (too many na´ve melodies), softer and less achieved in term of composition. The three bonus tracks (remix) released for the new version (Random records) are as usual very mediocre and un useful. This album is a good listen if you appreciate the original sound of Rother's three first. This is maybe the last memorable work he made in solo until the new musical orientation taken recently (not only in solo but also with great collaborations with others artists as Moebius). For those who are not familiar with Michael Rother solo work I only advise his first "Flammende Herzen" which sums up almost all his discography.
