As a former member of both Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Temple, multi instrumentalist Klaus Schulze is cited as one of the founders of contemporary electronic music and soundscape artists. His solo records go well beyond the "krautrock" vein and can be considered some of the finest of synthesized and experimental music coming from Europe in the 70?s, 80?s and well beyond. The four tracks that make up 1987 Dreams fit well into Klaus? late 80?s work and, as well, disappear into a world of their own. The title track has been said to be the most disturbing of his works while Five To Four works upon Oriental colours and textures. A Classical Move and the 24+ minute Klaustrophony relate closer to the uneven rhythms and experimental stretches and drives coupled with dark synth sounds more common of Klaus Schulze?s works. The previously unreleased 24 minute Constellation Andromeda has been added as a bonus track to the new edition.
Not my personal pick...

"This is a recording from Klaus Schulze's 1980s 'MIDI' period, which also includes the better 'Miditerranean Pads' and 'Angst', either of which would be a better choice than this album. The music here seems rather unfocussed for Schulze, normally a very on-point composer, and the vocal on the final track is a downright mistake, right up there with the vocals on Tangerine Dream's "Cyclone" in terms of tactical errors. Your money would do better if spent elsewhere on Klaus's work."
Poor but has moments...

"This album was one of Klaus's 80's, creatively stuck, material. Over all it's OK a return to some older ideas and rehash of different things most obvious is the final track which goes back to Mirage days only more updated and modern. Other tracks are almost abstract or minimalist stuff.. I'd heard this album was a step forward for him but really not much of one. Poor."
