Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars The first live album from Klaus is quite challenging.

It is some king of mixed bag from the late seventies and offers several facets from the great man. It is true to say that there are golden moments in here.

The fantastic version of "Sense" (about fifty minutes) is just wonderful. Such a pleasure for any prog electronic lover (but not only I assume). The soundscapes are phenomenal, the melodies are HUGE, and the emotions are intense. Soooooo intense!

This piece of music is really to be related with the best of his studio work so far (and if you have read some reviews of mine about the great man, you might know that I am quite positive about his musical contribution). The great percussion work is also quite a positive add on to this glorious moment of prog.

This is of course the absolute highlight. The masterpiece of this live album and another masterpiece from his whole discography (but he already proposed lots of them).

This album could have been an extraordinary pleasure from start to finish. But unfortunately, there is "Dymagic" featured.

Lots of fans were quite sceptic about the collaboration between Klaus and Arthur Brown while they met for "Dune" (I'm one of that kind). I couldn't be thrilled with "Shadows of Ignorance" but what I have listened during "Dymagic" is all but magic.

It is of the same level than the weakest and infamous Schulze album so far: "Aphrica". This half an hour of schizophrenia, non-event item and indigestible partition can only lower my global rating. This part should have been skipped. I wonder why this was ever released, unless for contractual reasons. Anyway: it was a BIG mistake as far as I'm concerned.

As such, even if the great "Heart" starts as the wonderful "Invisible Limits" from whom you might know and "Bellistique" is quite alright, the upper limit of my rating is four stars. Seven out of ten really, because of the inhuman "Dymagic" that lasts for about thirty minutes!

2 stars I didn't hear this album until very recently and after I had worked my way through the historic and other editions. Compared to the excellent concerts in those boxsets, this compilation of material from various live performances between 1976 and 1979 disappointed me.

I enjoy 'Bellistique' very much and also the first half of 'Heart'. However, the 50 minutes of the 1976 piece 'Sense', that should have been the main attraction here, don't work at all for me. Way too repetitive. It sure surprises me as this is the favourite track for other reviewers. As I said, it might just be caused by the abundance of 1975-1977 concerts from the boxsets that I had heard just before this one.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars The first (of many) live recordings from synthesizer guru KLAUS SCHULZE should have been the capstone to a pioneering decade, celebrating nearly ten influential years of groundbreaking electronic meditation. But the haphazard selection of performances and often sloppy organization makes the two-CD set resemble instead an obligatory catalogue filler more than a crowning achievement of any sort.

The four long tracks succeed in providing a valuable snapshot of exactly where the artist was at the end of the 1970s. But, similar to the likewise double-disc live package "Encore", released a few years earlier by his compatriots in TANGERINE DREAM, there's a suggestion that the once cutting-edge Berlin School of electronic music was falling into bad habits, with all those synthetic ragas and endless pre-programmed sequencer arpeggios fast becoming another kosmische cliché.

Disc One begins strongly in the 21-minute "Bellistique", reversing the usual template by opening at full swing and only later devolving into an extended ambient soundscape. (I read somewhere it was actually the finale to an evening's performance, and maybe should have likewise been positioned here at the end of the disc.)

But the rot begins to set in during the nearly one-hour long "Sense", at least after a compelling introduction: twelve minutes of classic KS, arguably the highlight of either disc (and apparently missing from the original, abbreviated LP version). The foreground improvisations are typically fluid throughout the slowly unfolding 51-minutes of the track, and old friend Harald Großkopf's drumming gives the music a sharp dynamic edge. But the too simplistic four-note sequencer pattern is plodding, at best, and continues with little variation for longer than forty (!) minutes. The occasional chord change is included to give it at least a semblance of variety, but the final effect is more numbing than hypnotic, and the applause at the end sounds a little perfunctory. Maybe the crowd was simply exhausted by that point.

Then there's a noticeable dip in the sound quality on Disc Two, at around the 12-minute mark of "Heart", the first of two half-hour long jams filling the second set. The ethereal introductory soundscapes will sound familiar to veteran fans, recalling the evocative "Heinrich von Kleist", from Schulze's 1978 studio epic "X". But I'm convinced the latter two-thirds of the track are from another, later gig entirely, and together with "Dymagic" sounds like a bootleg audience recording (a very decent one, I should add, the quality of which does nothing to impair the experience).

Arthur Brown (yes, the God of Hellfire himself) is the guest star of this last excerpt, fresh from his controversial appearance on Schulze's then current 1979 studio album "Dune". KS was always looking for novel ways to galvanize his electronic soundscapes, using borrowed orchestral tapes, real drumming, and unexpected vocal accompaniment (recently collaborating with ex-DEAD CAN DANCE singer Lisa Gerrard). Brown's performance here isn't nearly as irritating as it was on "Dune" (which, admittedly, I haven't heard for several decades: only the magnificent title track of that album survives in my music library). At times he almost seems to have a Klaus Blaquiz / MAGMA vibe going, adding a unique spin to what otherwise would have been a fairly routine space jam.

And this last track, too, shows evidence of tampering: notice the brutal edit just beyond the 26-minute mark, clearly an attempt to bring artificial resolution to a performance that couldn't be shoehorned in its entirety onto one side of vinyl. (A quick digression apropos both tracks featured on Disc Two: you can always tell when Schulze is growing bored with his own noodling, by the arbitrary shift upward in tempo.)

Klaus Schulze would release numerous concert recordings over the next thirty years (and counting). But it's a shame his more influential, analog years aren't better represented (outside the occasional expensive boxed CD set) beyond this often compelling but occasionally slapdash release.

5 stars Ok, I think I don't share the other reviews, for me LIVE is one amazing photograph of SCHULZE in the seventies. The first track, Bellistique starts with synthesizers and drum patterns, that come up stronger and stronger until the piece changes into something quieter and darker. Very good star ... (read more)
