5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deutsche Elektronische Musik (Audio CD)
This may well be the best CD I have bought for many years, even though the music on it is thirty to forty years old now.

Not only are the 2 discs stuffed to capacity with interesting stuff, but the packaging is of a quality unheard of these days, apart from in those expensive 30th anniversay box set re-issues. The dics themselves are in a little plastic box the likes of which I haven't seen before and there is a 38-page glossy booklet that is actually worth reading. In fact the booklet actually blew my mind when I discovered that one of the more obscure bands on here actually featured the man with the golden flute himself, James Galway on their first album.

The name is a little misleading as it suggests the music is all electronic, but hardly any of it is 100% electronic and some of it features no electronic instruments at all. In fact this set features more jazz flute than an extended version of Anchorman but that is not a bad thing - one of the highlights for me was the intense flutework on the track by Iblis.

Not all of the music falls into the archetypical, repetitive image of krautrock/motorik music. Some of it is a lot more like American psychedelic music, some is like British prog of the same time, but, of course, motorik is there too including the mighty Hallogallo.

The perfect soundtrack to a long drive.
