2 stars The prior release from Klaus was very good ("En=Trance") and lot of hopes could be thrown into his next studio effort. But, unfortunately this "Mediterranean" affair doesn't hold the same splendid parts.

Few passionate moments, few glorious keyboards layers, few inspired passages. The added synthetic "drums" aren't of any great value as far as I'm concerned. The great man could have invited a "true" drummer to perform (I'm thinking of Mike Shrieve of course, but I'm biased).

The long "Decent Changes" is just an extended and monotonous rendition of the same basic musical structure. Being played over and over for more than half an hour. Can't get thrilled with this for sure! Almost indecent with little changes?

The development of the title track is slightly better but let's considered it as only a good musical piece with no excess. Still, my preferred song from this album which won't be taken into account if I had to make some dramatic desert island choice.

This is a very long album (almost seventy minutes) for little performance. And you might know that I quite like the man (just look at my ratings). Two stars is the way I feel about this "Mediterranean" stuff. Not essential for a ? cent.

The long and closing "Percussion Planante" won't change my judgement.
