4 stars "Moondawn" is officially considered as one of the best Schulze albums (with X and Mirage ). Since "Timewind" it's clear that the man has specialised in cosmic, synth music recommended for meditation and introspect experiences. Larger Scale work, Moondawn starts with "floating" which indicates an intrusive spacey, atmospheric theme for synth. The tune is introduced by a religious recitation, then we discover a captivating, floating spacey synth lines rapidly punctuated by acoustic, repetitive drum pulses (by Harald Grosskopf). The last part contains detached piano arrangements. "Mindphaser" is a moody, ethereal piece which starts with concrete noises of thunder, accompanied by a celestial synth "modulated" voice in the background. The track progressively rises from the obscurity to ends into a schizophrenic cosmic set with indistinctive synth / organ sounds and a monotonous drum's accompaniment. "Moondawn" is Klaus Schulze trademark, beautifully structured and improvised "sidereal" synth universe. A great introduction before the mesmerising "Mirage" recorded one year later.
