3 stars MANUEL GÖTTSCHING's discography by his own is quiet obscure and small, taking into account his starting ignition with Ash Ra Tempel and the Krautrock styling since its beginnings. He is an inventive guitarist who has added some "musts" to the genre, yet as a composer, sometimes he loses himself, in self-indulgent music. "Die Mulde" is somewhat of an example of this (the first 2 tracks), but also his abilities to both, perform and compose very creative songs, with his very distinguishable guitar approach (the rest of the tracks). Therefore been that, the first two tracks seem out-dated in its electronic language, due to the fact that the use of sequencers nowadays require much more "work" than in the past, considering their use and easy access by almost anyone in every field of music. So, these days, you really can not stick to the "simple" use of these devices, you really have to "sweat" a liitle, to come up with something that will not be lost in the masses eventually. In some way these tracks demerit the rest of the creative work of the album, which without those tracks, would have turned out into a more innovative and original project as a whole. The good thing, as I mentioned, is that the rest of the album offers the creativity in compositions and performance, he is well known to deliver, both with the electric and acoustic guitar (the last track). As a result of this, what is worth listening deserves 4 PA stars, what's not 2, so sticking to the parameter, ***3 PA stars.
