5 stars The first and best effort by Eroc (Grobschnitt) in solo. A magnificent and ambitious affair that directly leads Eroc to the pinnacle of German progressive synth eccentricities. Nothing is "cosmic" or "trip out" as in Klaus Schulze, Conrad Schnitzler and others but it remains surprisingly weird and accessible at the same time. The argument is organic, cerebral and humorous with lot of manipulations in studio (voice and other sounds). "kleine eva" is a synth dominated song with flowing and beautifully sweet melodies. "des tauberers traum" is a darker track, including "loopings" and repetitive organic fragments. "toni moff mollo" is one of these particular and satirical sketches we can find in later albums. "die musik vom ölberg" is an enthusiastic, funny synth composition with a more commercial and dated flavour. "norderland" is one of my favourite Eroc's compositions; a moment of rare introspection and desolation with plaintive electric guitar lines & glissando, drums and sound effects. Great!!
