3 stars Sporting a cover by the famous art house Floyd designers 'Hipgnosis', this one holds a massive Freudian problem with me... Putting to one side the subliminal disturbances in my mind due to this strangely repulsive sleeve, it's actually a colourful, mostly upbeat electronic album, similar to 'Force Majeure' era Tangerine Dream. Although with less deviation from it's central aim.

All Göttsching's guitars sound heavily treated, which is a good thing. At points, he sounds like that bloke Vini Reilly from 'Durutti Column'. Without guitars this album would be a real bore.

Harald Grösskopf's drums occasionally border on disco beat and are pretty straight throughout. 'Correlations' has, however, that certain something or other that easily stands up to repeated listens.

For God's sake though, don't play it in front of any new girlfriend! She will not be enamoured. It doesn't sound cool at all in 2011. Luckily for me, I've always had a soft spot for this outer branch of Berlin Electronics synthetic sound.

A nice cheery, vocal free album that's good to listen to while cycling or running, but does sound VERY 1979 and cheesy in this day and age.

I've never reviewed such a dead cert three star album before. Perfectly acceptable to my ears, although others may disagree vehemently.

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
