I read Russian edition, the translation was pretty good I can’t change edition, although I created corresponding edition of this book Anyone out there have saampler hard copy? He’s purely sharing his own opinions and invites the reader to check them out, too. But it’s all justified because of how influential it is to an entire sub-genre of music. It’s a mix a fan appreciation writing, and a great knowledge of musical forms in general that really catures the spirit of these original pioneers of the German Kosmiche scenes.
Well crafted and clearly written guide to all that’s best about a diverse group of seminal artists whose influence on modern music is only just being given the appreciation and credit it deserves.
