What's not to like?,
This review is from: La Vie Electronique II (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!
