5 stars A masterful synthesis of cosmic electronic music in language and sound.

Zanov's 1983, "In Course of Time", is free as far as direct musical influences go! His freedom of language is its best attribute beyod the fact of using that era's keyboards. So are his unpretentious aspirations of spectacularity. Opposite to that his music is daringly personal, low keyed in instrumentation but extremely rich in music composition and straight forward creativity.

There is this ever present sensation of not being stuck in time, nor fads. Therefore it can show splashes of early baroque music as very 'Berlin' school ones. Surprises come all along the way, his environments are heartfelt and simple, he relies solely on his song writing and minimal yet deep sounds that confirm the "less is more" motto.

Time wise (1983), Zanov's "In Course of Time" personal quest was unpaired and unpolluted by almost everybody's 80s standards and direction. He himself in "Moebius", 1977, started to indulge in those same standards and yet he skillfully turned around and skipped this direction for a more intimate and far from stardom release (16 ratings? Come on you progressive electronic people!) .

This masterpiece shows without doubt, that at the end of the day, original music composition comes first, electronic keyboards, gadgets, fads and fans come and go!

*****5 "Masterpiece" PA stars!
