4 stars Among Schnitzler's finest materials. It keeps the original mix of long spaced out synth chords with hypno like electronic rhythms (albums like "Zug"...). Side one reaches the listener into an effervescent instrumentation, including looped drums and dreamy like keys. After 5 minutes of hypnotic torment, the composition carries on a long astral interlude, combining molecular noises to detached synth notes. Side two is surfing on the same imaginative collection of sounds, outer space sequences, haunting motifs and harmonic noises. This album makes the strength of Schnitzler's music thanks to a great harmony between sonic analog processing and running drums. Perfect in an installation environnement or to satisfy static journey throw mental pictures. Highly recommended for everyone into experimental electronics.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Gelb by the electronic kosmische master, Conrad Schnitzler, is 12 parts of various atmospheres all strung together to form a very eclectic album. Gelb is purely progressive experimental electronic music, but it all has a very krautrock kind of attitude to it.

A few of these tracks include acoustic samples from birds and ocean waves, but they are sparse in the music, and because of these samples some of the tracks have a very earthy feel. Some tracks have a metallic resonating and piercing alarm sounds that make the music sound like a soundtrack to an active factory full of working machinery, while some have a deep- space atmosphere with droning electronics and hypnotic pulses. All of these imaginary settings and different sounds make this one of the more eclectic sounding prog electronic albums I've heard, which is great, because I personally love some variation. In addition to great atmosphere, the melodies and beats that are created on the synthesizer on this album are kind of catchy, but remain untainted by poppiness like some of Schnitzler's contemporaries at around this time, which makes this album a bit accessible and situationally important.

Highly recommended.

4 stars Dirty drum boxes, imaginative synth riffs and noises, plus a subtle pre- "punk" attitude, add up for great electronics! Another Conrad Schnitzler work, with a low-profile "artwork" cover. Probably as ground breaking as his "Ballet Statique" (1978), which is also a personal favorite. "Gelb" meani ... (read more)

4 stars Old Conrad was really adventurous with some of his front covers wasn't he? Happily the sounds within are far more appealing. Proto industrial electronics are at play in this excellent instrumental recording from 1974 which finally saw the light of day in '81. This is one of his more listener ... (read more)
