4 stars What else can be said about mighty Klaus at this stage??? He released some great albums so far. And one sublime work ("Timewind").

If ever you are willing to discover some BRILLIANT music, there is no alternative. Grab "Rubycon" or "Timewind"" if ever some electronic music is what you feel. These albums range to the liking of the best of prog available.

Of course, the music is dramatically different from the wonderful "Yes" or "Genesis" which are my extreme cup of tea. You can add "The Graaf", "Tull" and "Floyd". My other utmost loved bands being "Led Zep" and "Purple". All of these ones for over than thirty eight years from now.

I just LOVE music.

And the music performed by Klaus here is just fantastic again.

It was of course difficult to reach the masterpiece whom he achievied with "Timewind", but this album IS another great moment of electronic music by all means. There are not many extra-terrestrial moments here, but some ecstasy is being reached anyway.

"Floating" is of great beauty. It delivers some gorgeous but tranquil keyboards structure. As if there were several masters in here. But there is only one chief of course. He is controlling the whole music available. Just listen to the superb "Floating" to be re-assured.

There is no compromise. Only great music developed by a HUGE man. Who should have been playiing with another monster of prog music. But that's what remains from both of their GREAT oeuvre.

When you listen to "Mindphaser", there is only one feeling that prevails: some sort of a magnificent and sublime jewel. This is hard to define: no intricate lyrics la "Genesis" who will remain my favourite prog band for ever. No extravaganza la Tull. Nothing as brilliant as "Led Zep".

Only superb music. No words. No shouts. Only great keys and huge melodic lines.

This album is great . Almost a jewel. A greatpiece of music to be honest. Four stars is the minimum rating.
