3 stars In this Sci-fi "cosmic" synth affair, Xolotl is accompanied by the keyboardist and front man of the French Clearlight. Written at the beginning of the eighties, this album stresses the return or the continuation of Klaus Schulze's music (during his analog synth period in "Mirage", "Moondawn"...). Consequently, "Prophecy" is a hybrid of diverse "kosmische" electronics mixed into rather calm, flowing, mysterious realms. Nothing very inventive and creative if we remember what have been done previously in the genre. Moreover the sound is very "artificial", "soft" and "commercial"; fare from the avant-garde / visceral edges of Berlin first "weird" musical excursions. If you like the most "new agey" & "ambient" parts of experimental electronic music (late Cluster, Harold Budd, Robert Rich...) you will be seduced by the "ethereal" textures provided by the modern electronic inventions of "Prophecy".
