2 stars During the eighties, the German synth legend Klaus Schulze pursued his solo adventure, working at the same time for his Wahnfried project...but for what? This "Megatone" brings nothing new (or almost nothing) to his usual "kosmische musik". A new element appears once again after the classic "Time Actor"; the presence of a singer (Michael Garvens). The voice appears in the modern and "mechanical" electronic piece called «Angry Young Boys". Schulze synth explorations are also sustained by guitar parts & sequencers, drum- machines. This vast & epic cosmic "trip" mixes pure atmospheric realms (the synth strings) with perpetual, repetitive drum rhythms. I'm perplex, Schulze really tries to get involved on "new agey" territories. "Megatone" is a deep ambient album but not as abstract or as meditative as before. The electronic pulsations and the pop arrangements put Schulze's music into a more "mainstream" level. Not a big surprise. Only for Schulze maniacs.
