4 stars A celebrated fantasia electronica. Pretty happy to meet such an obscurity, a premature delivery.

Their view and opinion on electronic music (obviously inspired by Berlin School) is extensive and depth-psychological. Sound itself recorded upon the two sides of lp can be really felt as simplicity but the sound structure should not be simply repetitive, convoluted masses of sound mixture but also philosophical "beep after beep" movement and stillness. From the beginnig "Yarabbim" we can make a connection with such a dreamy, hearty, dim, and a tad bitter multi-coloured psychedelia.Exactly suitable for the opening of their spiritual world. "TD-Mem" is the favourite track for me, featuring subtle 1/f vibration, plus larger tonic ironic catastrophic paragraphic kinesis. This combination as above mentioned is stimulatively impressive. Cool, clear, incisive phrases fly over my brain again and again. On the other hand, some tribal beats and ear-achy pressures around warped synthesizer sound basis can be heard via the first track upon B-Side "Gamabol", that reminds me of another creation by Zendik. "Where" is in the same vein like melodic Mittelwinternacht '71. Not flat like this electronic vanguard but very colourful and developing. The last "Sequencer-Roll" might be created as a rock and roll-like joke by the two creators of genius, I suggest. Laugh and dance upon the last stage, quite interesting.

In conclusion, let me say as follows. This creation should be dedicated to all Progressive Electronic freaks. An excellent (and obscure in future) shot by Bureau B. Bravo.
