A lot of Schulze fanatics seem to believe that this was a successful attempt by Klaus to make a "techno" or "trance" influenced record; on his website's "beginner's guide to Klaus Schulze", this album is described as "a groovy modern style bestseller", and it's frequently mentioned as the CD that could get the generation brought up with the electronic dance music of the 90's into his stuff. This, unfortunately, reflects the 70's e-music generation's poor grasp of techno and electronic dance music; they assume it's all about Tangerine Dream sequencing with a backbeat, i.e. you only have to add a kick drum and a hi-hat to the old sound and, voila, you've made first-rate techno. And that's exactly what KS does on this record; the melodies and sequencing are mindblowing as always, but to "update" his sound, he frustratingly ruins large parts of the album by adding the most possibly basic "boom-tss" beat pattern that goes on for half an hour a stretch, which seriously does your head in after a while. Considering Klaus' background as a drummer, this lack of rhythmological imagination is puzzling, and the whole thing sounds like an ill-advised attempt to adjust to new trends. Luckily, there are a couple of superb tracks where the beat is laid to rest (particularly the opener "Welcome To The Moog Brothers"), and some of the remixes on CD2, particularly the ones by Pete Namlook, distill the better ideas in the original material and shave them down to sensible length. (Shame that the second-rate outfit Humate was allowed to join the party, though). The album is also available as a single disc without the remixes; either way, you can give this one a miss if you're not a big fan of Schulze. For real Klaus magic, check his best 70's albums such as "X", "Mirage", "Moondawn" and "Body Love" or the better volumes in the "Dark Side of the Moog" series (vol. 5, 6 or 9 in particular), which are essential.
