4 stars This was an album I had searched for for some time before discovering that "Wayside Music" had it. Thankyou Steve ! DEUTER is a one man band from Germany featuring one Georg Deuter. He is definitely a pioneer in the Electronics genre as this first album "D" came out before Klause Schulze released anything, while TANGERINE DREAM released their second record "Alpha Centauri" this same year, and KRAFTWERK released "2" also this same year of 1971.

"Babylon" opens with dark sounds then we hear a baby cry briefly as the haunting soundscape continues. It changes after 3 1/2 minutes as we get a rhythm. Another change before 6 minutes as the melody stops and it turns spacey again. Acoustic guitar before 10 minutes then the tempo picks up. "Der Turm / Fluchtpunkt" opens with percussion and other sounds. It's more intense 2 minutes in. A good rhythm arrives before 3 1/2 minutes.

"Krishna Eating Fish And Chips" is a little annoying for my taste with all the sitar. I like the spacey intro though. "Atlantis" opens with percussion and spacey sounds. This is an interesting track. Water sounds late. "Gammastrahlen-Lamm" is very spacey as sounds pulse and wash.

This would be a great addition to your Electronic collection.
