3 stars Grosses Wasser is a combination of Cluster's characteristic "ambient", "environmental" atmospheres (previously put in light with the beautiful "Sowiesoso") and modern "funky" electronic sounds. Made of efficient synth works and drum machines this album presents a total dissociation with their two first experimental, avant garde efforts. This one has similarities with Roedelius solo works ("lustwandel"...), especially due to the use of meditative, discreet piano lines. "Grosses Wasser" starts this serene adventure with a basic sequencer / synth repetitive composition 'Avanti" that can reminds some of Michael Hoenig / Ashra later works. Very different in style "Prothese" is a humorous, catchy composition which has a subtle "disco" flavour with an insistent electronic pulse in the background. The very short track "Manchmal" represents the summit of the album, a nice, peaceful song played for the piano. Not essential, this album shows an interesting variety of composition.
