4 stars On "Timewind" Klause starts to impliment multi layered synths, and as a result his music becomes more ambient and spacey. I was reminded of CLUSTER's first two albums actually which came out in the early seventies, although they achieved their sound in a different way than Klause did. Again we have two side long tracks, what's surprising though is the length of this album at 59 minutes considering it was on vinyl.

"Bayreuth Return" opens with spacey winds that continue to blow throughout. A pulsating beat comes in around 2 minutes as other sounds are added. I like the synth sounds 12 1/2 minutes in. It's very windy 21 minutes, more synths at 24 minutes. The sound becomes more intense 26 1/2 minutes in until it ends on a loud and disturbing note.

"Wahnfried 1883" unlike the first track has no beat or rhythm and reminds me of CLUSTER for that reason. Sounds echo as a wind storm blows in. Synths seem to rise out of the storm and build 3 minutes in, then take over. There is something sad about the soundscape here, as spacey winds continue but are more in the background. The sound gets intense late with higher winds as the song ends and our trip is over.

I still think I like "Picture Music" more than this one, but this is essential for the Electronic music fan.
