5.0 out of 5 stars living soul behind the machies, 16 Oct. 2009

This review is from: Transfer Station Blue (Audio CD)
Michael Shrieve's Transfer Station Blue came to life in 1986. It is a magnificent electronic music album, which although played mostly on machines and not instruments gives you a strong feeling of the presence of a living soul behind it all, controlling the music at all times. 4 songs compile this album and all 4 are great. The first song Communique - Approaching Silence could be the strongest piece with a lot of rhythm in it. Following it Nucleotide is very ambient and spacey, still great. The title track Transfer Station Blue starts very quietly and progresses into a higher tempo and melodic structure. Last one, View From The Window resembles second piece again, more ambient and reflective. Michael Shrieve had released another interesting, much jazzier album Stiletto in 1989 you might want to give it a try. If you like the atmosphere of this album a lot you should to some of Klaus Schulze's work (Body Love, Timewind, X), and some of Tangerine Dream's (the band Klaus has left behind) music (Cyclone, Force Majeure, Ricochet, Underwater Sunlight, Encore).

5.0 out of 5 stars Tonwelle by another name, 29 Mar. 2013

The first track on the album is the same as Druck, on the 1981 album Tonwelle by "Richard Wahnfried", a pseudonym for Klaus Schulze published on IC Records, KS's own label. The identity of the guitarist is a mystery, another pseudonym is used "Karl Wahnfried" but some say it is Carlos Santana. The version on this album is slightly different, mainly to my ears the drums are different and some of the keyboard licks. It is quite wonderful, and having owned Tonwelle on vinyl since 1982 I can't beleive I only came across this album today. Oh I bought the last one, sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars on the floor, 14 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Transfer Station Blue (Audio CD)
On the floor! That is how you will best enjoy this album.
Lights on or off, sober or not!
The music is magical, ambient speedy but tough.
Make sure you have a good hi-fi to spread this music all over...Do not confuse it with Jean Michel Jare's living room music....

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth synth relaxation mixture!, 8 Mar. 2007
By 
Jakob Rydahl Rasmussen "Rygge" (Hellerup, Denmark) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Transfer Station Blue (Audio CD)
When I first heard this album, I was surprised. I didn't thought that anybody would make this kind of music. Being a huge Jarre-fan and Klaus Schulze-fan myself, I thought that this was the ultimate synthesizer album. The combination of Schulze's smooth Fairlight-sounds and the "Amazon-jungle" beat from Shrieve, provides a very emotional state of mind. It takes you to the limit between total relaxin' and the emtional adventure of a lifetime. Enjoy.
