SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Holger Czukay, legend and co-founder of Can, is known for years by his experiments with electronic music, rhythms,atmospheres and world music. This album is quite accessible example of intelligent electronics with vocals.

All album's atmosphere is very airy,spacey and ambient. Holger plays all instruments himself, and it's obviously different electronic devices. Usually I hate drum machines, but there is a rare example when electronic drumming is so complex and interesting, that it doesn't destroy music, even opposite - in big part this music is based on spacey,complex electronic rhythms. Possibly, the reason is Holger uses rhythms as jazz musician, playing with sounds.

The only other artist presented on this album is singer U-She. Her vocals are influenced by Mother Gong, Bjork and Nico between others. Dreamy,psychedelic,spacey,freaky - all in one.

All album sounds similar to Bjork most electronic works, but with more experimental using of electronic rhythms and minimalistic sound. Really interesting work for fans of accessible experimental electronics,IDM, intellectual trip-hop,etc.

3 stars If all nightlife music were like this!

Holger Czukay's, 2003, album "The New Millennium (with U-She)", had the luck of appearing in PA, due to Czukay's pioneering in the early Krautrock scene (co-founder of CAN). But most of these songs fit the electronic dance floor scene rather than the average prog/electronics's or Krautrock's audiophile expectations, less the other 90% of the Prog's bunch!

But I myself am glad because it is so un-prog, yet experimental and intelligent all the way through. And mainly because this kind of techno-trance/dance, electronic music found its way on such a "sacred Prog land" !

Anyway, the songwriting besides being in its majority danceable, does not subdue itself to be or become "mainstream". The experimental and humorous Krautrock tones, save each song of becoming a self-parody of the dance floor scene or the 80's one. Opposite to that, it becomes the kind of "perfect world" nightlife music for "lost" proggers.

The real deal is having taken the best of the 80's sexy dance sounds (U-She's vocals take care of this), bringing them to the 21st century's refinement, transmuting them into something less cliched and fresher, and adding really cool contemporary experimental dance/trance-electronics and stylings, and still be intelligent in its songwriting and never condescending to its own roots.

Going by the book ***3 PA stars, but I am gonna keep this one!

4 stars For me this is the best one out of the three collaborations of Holger Czukay and U-She. It is the least meditative, though, with some fast techno beats and some dazzling cascades of notes that you wouldn't normally expect from a grey-haired veteran like Czukay... actually you wouldn't expect them fr ...
