Gold material. This album is just perfect piece of cake. Great music. Very emotional, very intelligent, very, very, very...!!! Superb for me.

Peter Baumann returns after three decades (that's thirty three years for those that can't count, a long time basically) and neatly sidesteps the doubters and confounds the critics by not changing the formula much. Dark, sombre and sober moods prevail. Monophonic melodies briefly dominate. Crisp, stately rhythms underpin. Everything is done economically and with an understated sense of grace, like a gothic version of Kraftwerk. I couldn't really care less if the game has moved on since Romance '76, just really glad he's done an album of this quality.

I listened to this CD and I thought it was only average. PB is excellent but he sounds like he has not been at it for a while-I wish him luck though.
