5 stars Klaus Schulze in highest form. "Mirage" defines a visionary music around mental pictures. This is experimental synth music featuring a vast gallery of different analog synth, non- modular Moog, Farfisa, Mellotron. The result is sumptuous and can be hardly described with words; a cerebral and emotional exploration throw time and space. "Velvet voyage" is a cosmic synth travel, starting with strange, weird electronic sounds to finally let the place to deep ethereal synth contrasts accompanied by a doom bass line.."Crystal lake" offers one of the most brilliant progressive electronic pieces I've heard: a celestial, repetitive dreamy melody comes to the light, covering a large part of the composition, totally hypnotizing. A wide range of abstract electronic sounds are progressively put into the mix to create a sophisticated "imaginary" music. Fascinating and unique! Klaus Schulze best analog synth album.

"Music is a dream without the isolation of sleep. In fact whilst listening to music, your ego is living. But your universal ego, your principle watchs of your self ego is taking a new level of participation, the dream is reality because your are living the dream and your dreams control your reality. The supreme reality is creativity (all kinds of art) which takes you back to your mental origins. The musical theory is perfection, sometimes never obtained. The concept is a mental reaction, the process of movement and change, the basis of mankind. Music is the background to a mental picture, but the exact interpretation must be made by the listener, hence the music is only half composed and the listener himself should attack the composition to gain a mental repercussion. The listener has to add the meaning. The principles of music are to make the listener powerful and happy to endure our dying planet like by using their own creativity and being aware of emotion."
