I first heard this album in 1994 or so, and it's one of about a half-dozen Klaus Schulze records I've been exposed to. Qualitatively, it ranks somewhere in the middle. However, it's a bit different from his other work, being a little colder and harsher with its rhythmic bits. At the time, I felt that were it to be reissued on the Rephlex label with no artwork or details on the packaging, it'd be hailed as some new secret dark ambient / hard techno DJ-tool project of that label's luminaries. Filed under just "electronic"/"experimental", though, with Klaus Schulze's name and dated psychedelic artwork on it, it was bound to languish in the bins, unknown to all but the most adventurous of young DJs. Nowadays, 15 years on, I never listen to it, but I still remember it fondly as being part of an intense period of zoning out to cold, deep drones and aggressive, industrial-ish machine music.
