5 stars Wow! What an astonishing release from Klaus Schulze! With "Moonlake", the German pioneer manages to re-discover the sources of inspiration of his beginnings (long sequenced electronic soundscapes) by adding a modern feel more than thirty years after... and to deliver a new album composed of four beautiful tracks.

The first one, "Playmate In Paradise", is definitely my favorite of the album. It is catchy, hypnotic and catches my attention and my imagination during 30 minutes. The lasting part sounds very 70's-ish. "Artemis in Jubileo" begins with ethnic sonorities to finish in a vaporous atmosphere. Then, a smooth cristalline melody takes place with "Same Thoughts Lion". The record ends with "Mephisto", a beautiful music piece perfectly sequenced in which you can perceive echoes from "Bayreuth's Return" with trance loops... Magic!

"Moonlake" largely stands in comparison with Schulze's most ambitious albums of the 70's and is highly recommended to electronic and ambient music fans. Brilliant, and possibly a new classic!

Modrigue | 5/5 |
