Review by ZowieZiggy
1 stars 1994 was a prolific year for Klaus, but I can't say that it was a great musical year in terms of quality output. Fully classical albums with "Le Moulin De Daudet" and "Goes Classic" and now this one!

"Totentag" is hard to categorize. Minimalist, avant-garde, experimental, weird, grotesque. You name it. There are some "Grobschnitt" extravaganza in here. But without their genius unfortunately ("Prelude"). "Vocals" are quite ridiculous and avoidable by all means. What happens Klaus???

At this point, one might think: well, this is only a prelude, things will get better. Unfortunately, it is not the case. "Liebeszene" is another classical and annoying number, at least for the introductory three minutes. It turns out to be a more "standard" Schultze piece of music after this. But, gosh! How many people would have just skipped the track before reaching this good part? The problem is that it won't last for long (some five minutes) before the "vocals" come back.

Another major problem with this work is that it is a TWO CD set! Clocking at over hundred minutes of music. Quite difficult to swallow, believe me! At times "Im Bordell" sounds as an electronic opera (but the opera feel is much more dominant, unfortunately).

The whole of this album sounds like a bad joke to my ears. It reminds me of the dark days of "Aphrica". Yes, it is that bad. The second CD offers no escape to the global feeling.

One star of course.
