5 stars By the time this album was released, I already had lost hope, that Klaus Schulze, will turn again something at least interesting. So I got this "In Blue", like 10 years later from its release in 1995, in its new deluxe re-release in 2005. What a relief, I could not believe that Mr. Schulze could pull it off again, his creativity I mean, what great luck, to have aquired this work.

Long timed compositions, sub-divided in movements, that actually detour from the structure and become independent, and yet part of the whole. Klaus Schulze experimentation with the 80's actually paid off, if not on those albums, it actually did on this one, avoiding consciously, that language but not its tools. His electronic/drumming is richer, maybe he remembered, that he is also a drummer, without making it the main character, but in addition to the melodic lines, that are again intelligent, daring, yet kept in size, like in his "peak" days of inspiration.

Even though this "In Blue" is a 2CDs project, it seldoms repeat itself, and if it does, it is to "mark" the concept of the whole composition, so it never gets tIring to the listener, nor to the composer.

Dynamic, ambiental, interesting, both as far as composition goes and as a Progressive/Electronic "sonic" experience.

The good days are back! ****4.5 PA stars.
