Boomkat Product Review:
'Gold' collects outstanding archival material recorded by the legendary Conrad Schnitzler between 1976 and 1978 and previously released on CD in 2003 by Marginal Talent. As the label say, "the compositions are guaranteed to dumbfound even the most enlightened Schnitzler listeners", such is its strange mixture of spectral harmonics and alien electronic pop abstraction. It predates his odd pop period proper in the early '80s but exhibits that sound in genesis with highly structured sequences of rhythm and harmony modulating beside the sort of signature atonal experiments which marked his slightly earlier work and provide a constant thread throughout his oeuvre. Those rhythmic patterns are almost dancefloor-worthy for more intrepid DJs and dancers, and there's real moments of sheer symphonic majesty for the home listener and early electronic enthusiasts to fall right into. Yet again, this release reasserts Schnitzler as a genuine pioneer of electronic music who was way ahead of his time. Recommended.
