4 stars Great to notice that Prog Archives allowed the electronic music scene on their site! My favorite band is TANGERINE DREAM (the "Phaedra"-"Encore"-era) but the early work by Klaus Schulze is second's best! Especially the album "Moondawn" belongs to my most played electronic music records. I own the Manakin Records version that contains the two original songs "Floating" and "Mindphaser" and the bonustrack "Supplement". The first track "Floating" (27:15) features beautiful string-sounds, hypnotizing sequencers and fine soli on piano and synthesizers. The second composition "Mindphaser" (25:34) is one of the best electronic music pieces ever written: wonderful sounds of nature (waves, wind), celestial female voices, compelling string - and synthesizer layers and then a sensational shifting mood delivering sumptuous Farfisa organ and fat, ultra-deep Moog runs, an excellent combination! And let's not forget the exciting drumming in the first two songs (especially the second) by drumming by Harold Grosskopf, he adds a very vivid element to the often quite static sound of electronic music. The third track "Supplement" is not my cup of tea, too much sounds and too fragmentic. Conclusion: two great composition delivering more than 50 minutes of mindblowing electronic music. A MUST!!
