Just when his listeners think they have him pegged, Klaus Schulze surprises them. On En=Trance, he follows his usual pattern for a while, then goes in a totally new direction. This album has Berlin school sequences and overt rhythms, but the sequences are extended and the rhythms do not dominate. Schulze uses deep atmospheres, symphonic synths, and experimental sci-fi sounds to create these trance-inducing soundscapes. The drawn-out sequences have atmospheric textures and the symphonic synths are smooth and direct. This is one of Schulze's stronger efforts.
