I have just got through with writing some brief comments about Volume 1 in this series, and I don't want to repeat myself here.

This CD set is essential listening to Schulze fans who just can't get enough of his early work. Since the music in the series is chronologically organized you should know that this release covers the years 1972-74. So we're talking Cyborg, Picture Music, and Blackdance era's. Nothing here would have been out of place on those records, so if they're your cup of java, then there's no reason not to get this. Packaging is decent, sound quality good, and the music incredibly inventive.

What more can I say?

Format: Audio CD
I totally agree with the other reviewer, there is no reason why a fan of earlish Klaus Schulze shouldn't get this triple CD. My only concern is: why get this and not the other volumes in the La vie electronique series? It is a paradox that the only problem posed is that you have an awful lot of music to listen to and digest (nearly 4 hours!), so if you intend to buy all 10 volumes you end up with nearly 40 hours of music, that more or less means you should only listen to Schulze for a month at least! For this reason I decided to buy (at least for now) only one volume and instinct told me to buy volume 2. Bless my instinct! I gave the CD five stars because I judge it as a CD that should contain lesser material (as it often happens with bonus tracks in rock music) and in this respect it is truly exceptional, no track is less than good and I daresay that the 4 tracks that Schulze created in collaboration with a musician unknown to me would have constituted a very very good record, creative and innovative and with the use here and there of acoustic guitar and/or human voice that marks a welcome difference from the usual synth waves. What comes out clearly is the picture of a musician totally devoted to his muse and one can imagine him playing at nights for hours on end as reported by faithful collaborator Mueller. Colossal in every sense!

If you've totally explored Volume One, then you are definately ready for Volume Two 4 Mar. 2012
By Rykre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Continuing where La Vie Electronique: Volume One left off, you will hear more lost tapes of the Irrlicht, Cyborg, and Picture Music era of Klaus Schulze. With disc one of the three, it opens with five shorter complete projects. When I say shorter, I mean shorter as what is out of the familiar ordinary from Klaus Schulze's vision of exploring his mind dissolving sound passages. You know already, that Klaus has recordings (both studio and live) that have exceeded an hour, although it still feels abrupt when his current soundscape eventually comes to an end. But, that's okay. The next track just introduces us to his next audio adventure. The mystique of your inner world continues...

Klaus Schulze doesn't write songs. Can we ever call this music? It doesn't really have to have a beat or a rhythm. It can be something, nothing more than a gentle pulse. A whisper of a sound, but has volumes of intensity, for what you'll allow of yourself to embrace, as that of what you hear. What you feel.

Your ears serve as receptors to the sound, it transmits a reverberation to the brain and instantly swells the heart with stimulation. The heart then responds favorably and returns a signal of approval back to the brain so that your whole body can become incorporated into the vast numbness of the absolution of pleasure and sound.

Close your eyes, and allow yourself to fall back and visualize the synthetic flow of the red river flowing through the aquaducts of your inner body.

Take note of the red hydraulic fluid of mortality, which flows through your veins. But, alter the mind's eye and imagine that it is instead, blue. In the subconscious mind, artificial prefabrication of distant worlds is an art and can become easily achievable, once you teach yourself how, and of course, you have to believe that it can be done.

Failure to reach this euphoria, only means that you are still afraid to let go.

Gravity, to many, is a sense of security and with cautious hesitation, is a means of fail-safe sanctuary. It is a self-maintained limitation supported by fear of the unknown and it imprisons the unadventurous new candidate to grasp what is real, but is stationary and takes you nowhere.. You can leave this world, without ever leaving your room. Inner-space is infinite space. Why fear endless free-falling if there is no existing foundation for a sudden impact?

Invest in this CD collection. Take absence from yourself, if but only for a while.

Embrace the absolution of pure nothingness. Release your grasp with your surrounding comfort zones.

Survive this, and then prepare yourself for Volume Three. But only, if you dare.

La Vie Electronique II - Klaus Schultz 5 Dec. 2011
By A. L. Haig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you like the older classic analogue organs, the variety of modular synths, space echo's and tape machines then I highly recommend this album. Of course all of the La Vie collection is well worth the investment.
Each set has 3 cd's which gives plenty of scope for inspiration, being a musician myself. I personally find it pleasing while, reading, editing and organising photographs or just plain relaxation.
Alot of todays electronic music just doesn't have that 'unique' factor, but Klaus Schultz certainly has.
Well worth checking out.

La Vie Electronique Vol 2 1 Oct. 2011
By P. Nicholson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
LVE Vol 2 contains wonderful early material using organ and very early synthesizers to great effect. The regular releases from this period were PICTURE MUSIC and BLACK DANCE - those familiar with those albums have a good idea of what is on the 3 dics. This is a favorite of mine in the LVE series and I definitely recommend it.
