1996 release. "So, what does Mr. Rother's newest release sound like? Track One, Side One, 'Silver Sands,' pretty much gives a taste of the whole. The piece is squeaky clean with none of the annoying analog euphony, recording venue air, captured space or performance hall reverberation. Everything is created, manipulated, layered and sculpted. This is not to say it does not 'sound good' - it does. It has deep bass, complex personality and a huge soundstage. It just does not sound 'real' - and it shouldn't. 'Kristall' is a perfect cut for a radio show like Hearts of Space. It is the sonic equivalent of computerized virtual reality. Rother builds a musical canvas of repetitive loop, and then splashes spacey synthesizer exclamations in the most carefully chosen places. With meticulous control, Rother plays every instrument and extracts precisely the colors he wants from within the machine's dark soul of chips, capacitors and resistors It is important to mention that this vinyl release offers four hand-picked bonus tracks not available on CD." Housed in a full-color gatefold sleeve.
