This german easy Trance of the 90's (in the Jam & Spoon style) is quite good if you liked that music. The multichannel version is really immersive with a real surround mix (different sounds come from all around)

Hello, I didn't know what to expect when I popped this into my OPPO. I kinda categorize this smack BETWEEN Electronic (a little Trip-Hoppy) and New Age. Excellent recording which played back very loud (but clean!) Sonics and MCH mix is top-shelf. Would've given a higher performance rating, but for the wishy-washy lyrics. Withstanding the few German lyrical interludes, everything is sung in English. Still, after all is said and done, sonically a MUST HAVE. Stands pretty much right up there to Groove Armada and Kinobe, IMO. Get it now, while it's still somewhat affordable. Thanks

Today I received a copy of this SACD in the mail. I have some of Schiller's RBCD's (Voyage, Desire, Sehnsucht and Atemlos), so I sort of knew what to expect, musically. Indeed this disc offers no surprises as far as the quality of the compositions go.
I enjoy listening to dance/trance/electronic music (Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, JM Jarre) every now and then. Having said this, I found the quality of most of the compositions on this disc mediocre at best.
Not unlike any of his other work on CD by the way. And yet... it's not unpleasant to listen to, especially late in the evening.

Apart from 'Delicately Yours' the sound quality of the stereo mix is excellent. Very nice lows and crystal clear highs. The aforementioned song sounds quite quite muddy though on my system.

I do not own an MC system so I cannot say anything meaningful about the MC layer.
