4 stars Blau is some of the best and most hypnotic electronic music around. It's not accessible at all, but I feel that anyone would find this album to be completely engaging.

"Die Rebellen haben sich in den Bergen versteckt" begins with the synthesized sounds of honking horns of cars in a congested city, but later on incorporates thought-consuming and hypnotizing space-like tribal percussive elements that progress throughout the track and become more dominant.

"Jupiter" is similar to what you'd expect satellites caught in the gravitational pull and the great storm of Jupiter to replay back on Earth's receiving computers. It's a very "confusing" sounding track with sequenced resonances and very thin-sounding percussive elements, and eventually the ghostly voices of a ravaged planet.

It's hard for me to explain this album, really. It's both spacey and mechanical, but utilizing a feel for possible alien mechanics rather than human-made mechanics, and the spacey elements seem closer to home that being deep-space. This is a definite must for fans of space music and progressive electronic music.
