4 stars [My review from a syth music site. I'm not sure what progressive rock fans will make of this. Genesis & Yes it ain't! There's no guitars whatsoever. No 'tunes' as such. There is: massed banks of all kinds ofsynth sounds, masses of mellotrons, drums & orchestral instruments in places. If you think synth music consists of Kraftwerk or Jean-Michel Jarre, think again... ]

This is an absolute MUST HAVE for Schulze fans. Possibly his greatest ever album, fully restored as per the Brain vinyl! There is also an interesting bonus track - a live orchestral / synth collaboration which contains elements of "Ludwig II". The big surprise here is that the short (5 mins) but wonderful track "Georg Trakl" has been expanded to a 26' epic. Superb stuff (it becomes a bit like "Heart" from the 1980 live album, but just buy it - you will not be disappointed. This 2CD set is sincerely recommended for anybody who would like to get into the strange but delightful world of Herr S. Be warned, however, that you must invest effort in some repeated listening to fully connect with this demanding / rewarding music. Finally may I take this opportunity to most warmly congratulate the people responsible for the current series of Schulze re-issues. Perfect sound, superb bonus material & beautiful packaging & booklets. 10/10
