Review by admireArt
4 stars Highly experimental, never intended for public release, beyond a single edition cassette tape . The material was apparently recorded between 1981-1985, as far as the unintelligible notes suggest. What is a fact is that Mr. Schickert never saw the need for further publications beyond the "personal" recorded self-catalogue. This rescue was done later by Steven and Alan Freeman, brothers involved in the blooming Krautrock scene, who contacted the musician to make it something more than lost-tapes. To shorten things up, a re-release on tape, with added tracks 10 & 11, recorded in 1985 and taken from "A Cage Went In Search Of A Bird" (which by the way, are the two songs that lower this album from 5 stars to 4.5). This tape saw the light that same year. Then the final renovation & mastering by Alan Freeman at Tachyon Studio (May 2002) in the form of a CD.

Another masterwork, from any perspective. It was then re-worked by Schickert during its final takes in the re-mastering console, but the original songs are left intact. This of course, sometimes, show in the not that perfect pitch digital quality we are now so sensitive of, but besides that, this, I repeat, is masterful.

The music is experimental in spirit, the songwriting being so varied during its time of creation, enhance the scope and dimension of Schickert's abilities, both as a performer (no guests) and as a very daring but disciplined composer.

Played along pre-recorded material, his guitar playing "droning" riffs, are predominant, as his trumpet playing, but the real deal is the connection between his "very normal" pre-recorded material and how he creates the whole structure, fom this ordinary sounds and noises. It has the bravery of his first release "Samtvogel" & the expierenced hand of "Überfällig", PLUS the added talent of late "Schickert".

Rejoice "Krautrockers" & "Electronics", things are getting better with TIME! ****4.5 PA stars.

Review by Mellotron Storm
5 stars This might be the most Krautrock sounding of Gunter's solo releases. His third and final studio album and check out admireArt's review for details surrounding this release. Gunter was part of the legendary Krautrock band GAM and this will be the third time I've given five stars between GAM and Gunter Schickert's solo albums. I just love his sound and the way he uses field recordings, echo guitar, trumpet, tapes and so on. A brilliant mind in my opinion when it comes to music and getting his start with Klaus Schulze didn't hurt I'm sure.

"Hollentanz" opens with what sounds like birds chirping crazily as a heavy drum and guitar sound joins in. Krautrock styled vocals a minute in and this is catchy but very underground sounding as the vocals echo and sound double tracked. So good though. Classic Krautrock right here as other vocals join in and other sounds dizzying the senses. Trumpet after 4 1/2 minutes.

"Rabe In De Nacht" opens with guitar and percussion along with experimental bits. Some vocal expressions too. Man this sounds good cranked up. Vocals are pretty much spoken after 3 minutes as the guitar grinds it out. Just a killer track. "Es Ist Schon Kurz Vor 12" has this raw sounding and fast paced guitar. A second sound of guitar I think arrives just before a minute. Distant words 3 minutes in as the guitar continues to power through the soundscape. More guitar like sounds 4 1/2 minutes in. It ends with fireworks and crowd noise and this will continue pretty much to the final track believe it or not.

"Guitarre Wlaurniam" continues with the fireworks and crowd noise as fast paced guitar sounds arrive but they suddenly slow right down, atmosphere too. Another guitar starts to solo over top at 3 1/2 minutes. Nice. Fireworks and crowd noise to the fore to end it blending in to "Suleika" where intricate guitar joins in, intertwining with another it seems. Very mathy as a beat joins in. So good! Catchy as atmosphere adds some depth. Spoken words around 5 1/2 minutes and the fireworks are back with crowd noise(haha) as it blends into the next tune.

"Schwarz Voll Weiss" is that tune as heavy drums join in along with atmosphere, vocals and more. More fireworks and crowd noise as it blends into "7/5" where some amazing guitar joins in then trumpet as it builds while the fireworks keep blasting off and the guitar keeps churning. The guitar steps aside as trumpet, fireworks and crowd noise continue as it blends into "Kinder In Der Wildnis"
