All you "Burea B" label krautrock hipsters need to show this man some wayyyyy overdue respect if only for his completely and just as innovative techniques on early electronic ambience mixed with real acoustic instrumentation on his late 70s early 80s albums. After that I'm with you in that the cliche became the norm for his "new age" fluff but give this one (Astral Trip) or "Full Moon Story" , or "Live In Person" a listen and you'll hear exactly what I'm getting at. If i gave any of those to you on a blank tape and didn't tell you who it was...??!!!
