3 stars Playful and meditative electronic music.

From Germany (again), a prog electronic duo named "Software", which besides its obvious name reference, the "soft" also serves to represent their musical tendency, in this their "ELECTRONIC UNIVERSE-Part 1", 1985, album.

More "baroque classical" inspired songwriting, than let's say experimental, moving closer to "friendly" , softspoken and intriguing musical figures, but also delivering long passages of very "electronic abstract ambients" , which contrast the mid-tempo and slow-tempo structures.

The most obvious comparisson will be with Klaus Schulze's non-pulse music, but the reference will be kept at a proper distance always, by their playful but intelligent compositions and approach.

An electronic trip that is surely enjoyable, although kind of short of becoming "essential".

3.5 PA stars.
