2 stars This album is based upon the work of a well known French novelist: Alphonse Daudet. His best known work which served as source of inspiration to this release is called: "Lettres De Mon Moulin".

"Le Moulin De Daudet" is certainly the most minimalist Schultze work so far. Classical from start to end, it offers very little of these great synth lines that the man offered previously. As I have said for other instrumental albums, it is quite difficult to understand a "concept" based only upon the music.

It is again the case here. Even if I'm not familiar with all these pieces of literature (the only one we have studied at school and the best known: "La Chèvre De Monsieur Seguin" is not featured) it is impossible to relate the music with the short novels (or letters).

In the same way that the Dante's trilogy has a place apart in the TD discography, I would say that this "Moulin De Daudet" almost featured the same odd nature. If you are into classical, it might hold some interesting parts, but this is not my case (which I have already expressed several times on this site).

Fans of electronic music, this item is not for you. As such I can't rate it with more than two stars.
