4 stars Good news for Progressive Electronic followers and maybe the rest of the Prog world!

U.S.O. aka Klaus Schulze (synths) + Olli Finken on drums + Razoof Lear (not real name) on guitar. As it is explained in the CD's booklet, this is previously, 2000 super exclusive released material, now in a more accesible format.

Well! Kudos to Mr. Schulze for unearthing this not so far in time material.

Now to where it matters the music.

This release opens up with an exciting and mysterious, obscure Gothic like, electronic track "The Keyhole" (4 stars). The whispering chorals add up to its building tension and serves as the intro to...

Track 2 "Privat". A highly sophisticated and SUPER-cool, flowing futuristic lounge electronic piece. Attractive as it shows Mr. Schulze's language best direction as it is filtered and moderated through his U.S.O.'s colleagues. 4 stars.

"Privée" has a different direction. Mr Schulze's well established translation of the Berlin School's pulse rhythms and sequences. The one of which he is a true master since the 70's. 4 stars.

Following this un-characteristically rich and diversified (an extremely good) compillation comes the longest track "Private". An obscure,highly attractive, intelligent, laid back, creative and focused composition. The kind of track that should be teached as the perfect intersection and EVOLUTION between the Berlin School and its U.S.A. West Coast branch............... If you can fly, this is the perfect track. 5 stars.

This release could not go without a -Bonus- track. "Privatissimo" is this one's one. Taking off , where "Privat" (track 2) left, it extends in the same direction , leaving a perfect pitch after-taste. 4 stars.

****4.5 PA stars.
