Review by ZowieZiggy
3 stars I start this review to welcome a man that I started to love in 1971. I mean Mike Shrieve, the drummer of the legendary "Santana". It is always a pleasure for me to listen to him.

With "Trancefer", Klaus did partially revert to his first love (which is also mine, talking about his great music): the sounds of the seventies: when music meets the cosmos and transports you to the end of this galaxy. Excellency is the word.

It all starts with the short epic (only? eighteen minutes!) which is again an ode to tranquil electronic music with fine and nicely balanced keyboards lines almost all the way through. No such weak beats la "Dig It": only a succession of spacey and more dynamic / dramatic musical development.

The percussion influence of Mike is definite from the seventh minute onwards. At some points, this song reminds me of the intro of "Slippermen" from whom you might have heard of. Unreal, mysterious, profound. After a quite drumming middle part, the song softens a bit (but not too much) to get back to a more conventional partition.

The second (short) epic available on this album is another fine Schultze piece of music. The faithful Wolfgang Tiepold is adding again another dimension with his excellent cello play. Combined with Michael, this is quite a treat, although not quite an usual Schultze fantasmagoria.

I am rather pleased to see how Mike could influence this work. But he such a great drummer (with song writing abilities let's not forget) that this is not a surprise.

Seven out of ten for this good album..

Review by Bonnek
3 stars On Trancefer, Klaus Schulze has come to grips with his new digital equipment and realizes equally mesmerizing atmospheres as he had created on X, only this time it's done entirely digital. The most surprising element would be the length of the album. While a normal Schulze album rarely clocks off under 60 minutes, this one is with its 37.30 minutes almost as short as a your average Tangerine Dream platter.

A Few Minutes After Trancefer is a dominantly non-melodic and very percussive track. It is very rhythmical and creates a great ambience. Silent Running is probably the best of both, again it's very spacey and brooding.

This album is a solid effort and recommended to all fans of Klaus Schulze. It's more experimental then most of his 70's work but if you take your time to let yourself be absorbed by it, you might marvel at this lush minimalism as much as I do. It is certainly not the first time that Schulze captivates me with what amounts to just sound and rhythm, but it remains a unique experience. 3.5 stars
