If Project Pitchfork's experimental descent into an original but very odd "gothic / yoga / cold wave" mixture culminated with "Inferno", then Kaskade is sort of a 'musical transit station' (to use an expression of which I'm confident Spilles would approve). They had simply reached the end of the road and were now trying to find their bearings for the Project's future direction. I'll assume they recognized that they were at this point a mature band with a stronger need for consistency, depth and to stay true to and develop their core themes than to nervously barge on a desperate quest to justify their existence by constantly breaking new ground just for the sake of it. In that context, Kaskade would mark a return towards a more danceable and electronic past, although they're not quite there yet (they sort of come full circle on "Dream, Tiresias!"). Anyway, this could help to explain why Kaskade may well appear to lack in identity and sort of have its feelers out to realign with the spirit of the time, to stay relevant.., perhaps flattering to deceive? I think "Schall und Rauch"is a good and technically well composed track (the way it changes tempo from the slow, almost hesitant verse to it's more upbeat and surprisingly catchy chorus), but the rest of the tracks on this album feel a bit dated, superseded by their later improvement.
