3 stars This album is the precursor of Moondawn, my favorite Klaus Schulze music. It contains two 'side-long' tracks (both around half an hour), to start with Bayreuth Return. First soaring strings and lots of beeps and bleeps, then slowly a powerful sequencer and slow but exciting synthesizer flights joins. This evokes a very hypnotizing atmosphere, so typical for electronic as it emerged in the mid-Seventies, speerheaded by Tangerine Dream from their pivotal LP Phaedra. Halfway the sounds turns more into bombastic with a wonderful blend of deep sequencer runs and lush synthesizer work. The final part delivers pleasant shifting moods, between dreamy with soaring strings and more bombastic with powerful sequencers and compelling synthesizer flights. The second composition Wahnfried has a bit melancholical climate featuring a lush strings sound but halfway this track fails to keep my atttention, I miss something. If I compare this album with Moondawn I think Timewind has a less elaborate sound, on Moondawn the blend of vintage keyboards like the Farfisa organ, Moog synthesizer and string-ensemble was more exciting. Nonetheless, a good electronic album, one of the better solo efforts by Klaus Schulze.
