3 stars En=Trance. Schulze has never shied away from goofy wordplays. But so far he had stayed clear from uninvolved and soulless electronic music.

Formally it all looks ok, extended pieces, no pointless beats, rhythmic sequencing, layered sounds. But the music goes by entirely unnoticed, it feels uninspired and frankly I don't like the sounds here at all. They are clean, out of the box digital keyboards that lack personality and atmosphere. For an artist that depends so much on sound as Schulze, this is a big shortcoming.

So how exactly did I leap from this assessment to 3 stars? For once the answer is maths. First of all, there's nothing really wrong with any of the tracks, and FM Delight is absolutely gorgeous and worthy for a 5 star album. That gives (2+2+5+2)/4 = 2.75!

En=Trance is a work that I wouldn't recommend to the casual Schulze fan, but on average it can sure be rated as good.
