Review by admireArt
3 stars Even though this is a re-release of a limited series of published works which a privileged few only knew, it is new for the rest of us "unprivileged" most.

There is a rare quality this material possesses, like a refined experimentation, which somehow was meant to be private thus free of useless stardom and glitter.

By experimentation I mean a quiet relaxed music composition approach which simplifies Mr. Schulze´s styling to its core elements enhancing his well known language to its purest form as it allows an equally balanced participation of 6 guest musicians and vocalists who offer an impeccable and perfectly measured addition, mostly on the first track, of non-electronic flavors including Arabian flute, violin, oboe, English horn, cello and guitars plus of course the vocals which appear all way through.

A three track release spanning an hour 15 minutes , including a 41 minutes composition which somehow runs far too long for what it actually delivers and maybe could have been cut short for better results but as such it offers few surprises for such a running time . Besides this more or less "minor" flaw everything else is quiet well threaded.

As far as the rating goes the problem starts.

It will be hard to give this album constant listenings considering its main track starts to get monotonous around its half time, yet it will be undeserving to miss this track´s first half which is quiet enticing. Therefore to rate it fairly I can not disregard this waste of 20 minutes which music wise are an eternity as I can not disregard that the rest of the album is very enjoyable.

3.5 PA´s stars.
