PROG REVIEWER
3 stars A good album with one of their best tracks ("Oh, Odessa"), and several other good tracks marred by a curious (no pun intended) choice of post-recording mixing. Here's the problem: the only track that's stereophonic is the aforementioned "Oh, Odessa"; all the other tracks are, for all intents and purposes, monophonic. For this type of music, that is simply unacceptable. Cluster has come up with some of their strangest, most evocative music yet, but they don't take advantage of the "stereo field" at all. I guess this falls under the "flawed masterpiece" category.

3 stars This album neglects the classic abstract-psych experimentations of the two first albums to catch the essence of silent, synthesised pop sounds and sonic meditation. The result is rather strange, enigmatic and static. It's less organic and much more mechanical and minimalist. "Oh Odessa" is closed to Kratwerk's robotic electro pop sophistication...featuring computer like melodies, very repetitive with a certain dose of derision. Senseless for fans of Cluster's original sound. "Seltsam Gegend" is really bizarre composition, infiltrating acid psych electronic "patterns" with a distinctive poppy vibe, dissonant combinations...hard to digest! "Helle Melange" is without any doubts the best track here, sumptuous «melancholic», «grave» looped and repeated melodies, atmospheric dreamscape closed to the best of "Sowiesoso" (1976). Not their best, but illuminate, acessible with ephemeral melodies.
