5 stars This is one of Klaus Schulze's best albums, and his first one performed in Berlin School style. For those who don't know what Berlin School is, here's a short definition (thanks to Wikipedia ^_^): "The Berlin School of electronic music, or just Berlin School, was a development of electronic music in the 1970s characterized by soaring electric guitar or synthesizer melodies in high-register accompanied by complex, shifting sequencer bass ostinatos. The lead soloist's warm, human improvisations were counterpoint to the cold, robotic precision of the bassline. Sound effects such as wind, and washes of Mellotron choir, flute, or strings were often added for color. Most works were instrumental, vocals were used sparingly." The addition of drums adds a great new element to Klaus's electronic excellency. The first track Floating grabs your attention right away when you hear (and what I just found out) the lords prayer in Arabic. The rest of the track continues with soaring synthesizers and twinkling effects soon to be accompanied by improvised drumming. Mindphaser is my absolute favorite track. It starts off with the calming sound of the oceans water splashing up against the shore, with choir effects and the addition of thunder. This continues for half of the song and is then interrupted by blasting organs and racing drums. The track then carries out into the sound of early electronica. The bonus track, Floating Sequence, is another great addition to this album. By far one of my top 5 Klaus Schulze albums. 5/5.
