This sound is certainly great!
Robert Schroeder puts weight on good and convincing sounds.
It has become a real electronic album, with fresh sounds embedded in beautiful dreamy harmonies and some very nice accents added.
New ideas and new harmonies are combined with the typical Schroeder style in a very interesting way. A few tom sounds and the apply of the vocoder enrich this album, making it to an oeuvre that can be compared with some of the better Klaus Schulze titles. Recommended!
