4 stars As it was indicated in the title , this one commemorates a long time friendship between the two great and innovative musicians Schulze & Gottsching. In the past they participated together to a few classics of space rock classic, I think notably to the magistral 'ART' (by Ash ra Tempel) and 'Join inn' (By ART). 'Friendship' is slightly different in style compared to this golden age...but emotions remain intact. In this album, the alchimy between the two musicians works to perfection. We find again the typical Schulze spacey keyboards parts, sometimes sustained by electronic percussions. In 'Friendship' title track, Gottsching delivers a sumptuous & deeply emotional guitar solo...all seems to gather like magic...ethereal and very beautiful!

4 stars How many bands did join together after a very, very long break and performed?

Very, very little I have to say. I am of course biased with this AST album as I have been with some great KS oeuvres.

Because the man released not only musical jewels in my opinion. This was truly Art.

This work is of course a little behind the masterpieces of the seventies, but it is sill soooooo pleasant and moving. I have to admit though that the "dance" feel which can be smelled for a long part of the initial song ("Reunion" - total of over thirty minutes) is not always sounding great to my ears. Still, there are some great guitar part from Manuel of course, but as a whole I can't really be thrilled with this "Reunion" track. Quite good but nothing exceptional.

"Pikant" has little flavour to my taste. But of course, I am married to a Mexican person for almost twenty five years. So, I would have expected some more "spices" here. But the song is a long continuation of fine music after all (nice acoustic guitar play for sure). But I am really missing some gorgeous moments as we have met a long, very long time ago.

What comes next is pure grandeur, beauty and wonder. Some might say (accordingly) that the great Floyd is behind (SOYCD) but how could one resist to such an ethereal beauty, such a great song. The title track ("Friendship") is fantastic to my standards.

This is just a formidable moment of prog music. A fantastic combination of Kraut, Psyche, and Prog Electronic. At the end of day: a superb moment of music. HUGE (yes, in capital). The moving beauty of the guitar sounds being played are just PHENOMENAL. What else can I say about this sublime track? Nothing, I guess.

I just can recommend this wonderful piece of music to you. It will be a wonderful time of your musical life for sure. This track is of course worth of a five star award in my opinion. Almost half an hour of "friendly" and magnificent moments. What a fabulous closing pearl!

Close your eyes. Be ready. And listen. And enjoy.

A global four stars thanks to "Friendship" of course.

Review by Neu!mann
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars The prospect of a Krautrock superstar reunion must have had fans salivating in anticipation, but don't be misled by the Ash Ra Tempel moniker. The music on this year 2000 collaboration between two of the group's founding fathers bears no relation whatsoever to the unearthly kosmische explorations of bygone days.

Original bassist Hartmut Enke wasn't involved (hardly surprising, after his LSD burnout in the mid-1970s). And a more genuine Ash Ra Tempel reunion would have Klaus Schulze clattering away behind his dusty old drum kit, instead of pre-programming all the shiny, synthetic drum patterns heard here.

In retrospect the album was never meant to rescale the heights of German experimental music. The early '70s were tumultuous years, requiring an equally tumultuous soundtrack, but the end of the last millennium saw the exploratory spirit of the surviving original Krautrockers more or less tamed by age and complacency. Nothing wrong with that; we all grow old eventually, and for some of us it can be a very comfortable process. Consider this more as music of celebration, not opposition, marking thirty years of spiritual kinship over three long instrumental workouts, rich in digital atmospherics and propelled by the smoothest rhythms this side of a Bryan Ferry album.

Schulze's contributions don't extend far beyond the background layers of plastic New Age wallpaper. But the music takes wing whenever Manuel Göttsching begins one of his typically nimble solos. Göttsching was always one of the most natural guitarists of his generation, and despite a more refined style of playing in later years he never lost any of his skill or passion. The title track in particular offers a stunning display of power and sensitivity...at least before the artificial drumming kicks in and transforms it into an after- hours Iberian dance party.

(Besides the self-titled "Friendship", the other two tracks are named "Reunion" and "Pikant", the latter possibly a misspelling of 'piquant', but after hearing it I hardly think so.)

In the end the album might provide decent background music for making love, washing dishes, or working off all that middle-aged flab on a health farm treadmill. But it doesn't exactly encourage active listening, unlike the Ash Ra Tempel of old. Whoever said it first was right: apparently you can't go home again.

3 stars I know this is just me, but i cant stand the "electronic sound" in music, to my ears it sounds too "new age music" (which, for my taste, its not good at all, with some exceptions of course, but this is not one of them). I like a lot there 70´s sound (even the less prog plaques), but i can bare ... (read more)

4 stars This album sounds more like a Klaus Schulze solo album than an Ash Ra Tempel album.....It is heavy on synthesizers....There are no vocals at all.....and there is no psychedelic feel....there is nice sprawling abientish style that include a lot of percussion in the mix......good music to zone out ...
