Review by ZowieZiggy
1 stars There was already a prior attempt to bring in some vocals in his music ("Dune" with Arthur Brown").

Although this experience wasn't thrilling as far as I'm concerned, it was still a good album but mainly thanks to the great title track (which was pure instrumental).

What can I say about this album?

That it is ridicule? It would be an offend to the great man for whom I have the deepest respect.

That it is useless? Probably that this word provides a better picture of the content here.

The only good news about this album, is that it only lasts for less than thirty-nine minutes. But, believe me these are quite hard! To concentrate about such work to post a review is not a rewarding effort. Still, I have to say that when Ernst Fuchs shuts up during "Africa", things are improving. But unfortunately, he doesn't shut up for long.

How is it possible for such an artist to get that low? I can't tell (but many other bands/artists did so as well). Were there no one to tell him: "don't release such a crappy album"? There should have been someone. Damned!!!

As long as Fuchs doesn't appear, this album could have been passable (meaning two stars), but the guy is well present throughout the deal. And it is a total disaster. The best option is to NEVER listen to this album. For your own good sake. The remarkable "Ricochet" review speaks for its own. I can't really add anything else.

The bottoms have been reached here for sure. One star? Just because the zero star is not available to tell the truth. A complete disaster. A total nightmare. I can't say more.

Widely regarded as a hic-cup in Klaus Schulze's long, prolific and acclaimed career, it appeared, very briefly, on vinyl in 1984 before being withdrawn due to a dispute with vocalist Ernst Fuchs, on the grounds that Schulze's record company had "forgotten to do ...
