3 stars Pre-historic bloops, bleeps and squeaks all round for this 1973 album. It's funny to compare Schnitzler with Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze from the same period considering all 3 were together for Tangerine Dream's 'Electronic Meditation' in 1970. Schnitzler's is undoubtedly the most difficult music, Shulze's the most tuneful and Tangerine Dream's the most accomplished and complete. 'Rot' is pretty hard to take in one sitting. It's a weird album which on first listen sounds very repetitive until you realise that basically no two immediate sounds repeat themselves as he's constantly twiddling knobs, pulling levers and pumping pedals while pushing buttons! This sounds far more "Kluster' than 'Cluster' ever did, reminding me of Tod Dockstader in parts.

For the record and as a mathmatical equation - (as it's too difficult too explain in longhand):


Which is greater than:


because that leaves leaves a vulgar fraction

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
