5.0 out of 5 stars Buried Treasure 2 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
More than 30 years after its recording (seeing only the light of day in 1997) this album sounds as fresh and imaginative, if not more so, than if it had been produced today. For Eno working with the vanguard of these early German electronic pioneers, consisting of members of Cluster and Neu, must have proved to be an epiphany; indeed he described Harmonia as "the worlds most important rock group" - High prize from the man who would become the mastermind behind Bowie's 'Berlin' period and who would give birth to ambient music.
But listening to this album it is easy to understand why he was so unabashed. The music is tirelessly inventive, taking you through an endless array of atmospheres and moods that seemingly the probe the unknown and unspoken. Ranging from the plaintive 'by the riverside' right through to the atonal malevolence of 'weird dream', this release literally fizzes and cracks with imagination and possibilty. I cannot recommend this release highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes in autumn 6 July 2010
By Jo day
Format:Audio CD
This was the first electronicrecord I bought and I still keep it. Cause it is so mystic and beatifull. Especially Sometimes in autumn has some haunting soundscapes. I don't like Klaus Schulze yet, it's too repetitive, newage-like and somehow too long without no tension. But the songs here evolve softly and efficient. Together with Tor Lundvall's Ghost years and Pastel's Last great wilderness my favorite ambient: Sometimes in autumn. Very organic, inner-space autumnmemories. Like you'd find dark strawberries that didn't rot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Was it worth the wait? 30 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The trouble with `lost` albums like this is that they rarely deliver on the expectation. I was hoping for some sort of groundbreaking marriage between Eno and Harmonia.Instead you can see why it was unreleased for so long. I personally think this is decent in the first three tracks then drifts off into the ether for the next 4 or 5,before coming back to life on the last 5. I`d prefer more tunes, like at the beginning and the end of the album, the middle tracks especially are too dull and lifeless for my liking. Definitely an album where I would miss out tracks 4-7 when ripping to a MP3 player.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dated and Dull 4 July 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This probably sounded quite progressive in 1976, but it hasn't aged well and all sounds rather cliched and longwinded. Think "Cluster and Eno" (understandably) meets "Apollo" with a bit of "Index of Metals" thrown in, but not as good as any of these. Interesting to Eno collectors, but I'm afraid it didn't hit the spot for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Classic of yet to be emergent Genres 15 Feb 2014
By Nic - Published on
This is a 'chill out' & peaceful experimental electronic post rock/ambient/new age/chamber classical jam hybrid of sounds showcase. It's pretty stunning.

These sessions went un-released for a long time, which reflects in part the un-contrived nature of the music, straddling over music Genres which hadn't really emerged as Genres as yet when this was recorded, along with having the music & spirit of those Genres at their appex effortlessly - This is the sound of experimentation, musicianship, and jamming out mutual inspiration in a creative type of retreat without any other over riding agenda, hence the lost nature that these recordings would soon take on.

You couldn't have purposefully invented the type of music on this album before hearing it, it is of it's own making, that is the kind of creative & experimental 'live' vibe that underlines the music.

4.0 out of 5 stars That Warm, Fuzzy Feeling! 12 May 2013
By Andrew Szava-kovats - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of those records that just warms your heart, with its methodical, ethereal approach to serene, analog synthetic sounds and mellow grooves. It represents a time and place in electronic music history that will never happen again: When recording artists were able to take the time to allow themes to unfold organically, without the cut-paste approach of today.
The sounds have that great analog glow of warmth and noise, with a pleasant mix of guitar, bass, synths and drum machines.
The rhythms stay within slow to medium tempos, without a lot of breaks or changes, creating a smooth flow from piece to piece.
There are better recordings by this group ( both as "Cluster" and "Cluster & Eno" ); but it's still worthy of them. So if you like this, you'll Love the other records.
Sit back, have a toke and dream about your lost youth...

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 26 Oct 2012
By calexmac - Published on

Sounds as fresh as it must have done in the mid 70s. Generous, flowing, but not quite carefree. This is evergreen music. Extraordinary given it was improvised. Says something about the people and the place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unheralded Classic 24 Mar 2011
By Benjamin I. Smith - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I'm writing only because this album is fantastic and deserves to be better known. As the other reviewer mentioned, fans of Krautrock and Eno will love this - sublime, protean and varied. It fascinates as well as relaxes the listener. High quality reissue with great sound. Buy it while it's in print!
