It is only fitting that a German keyboardist, particularly this one, should make a Moog record. Sound 2000 follows the success of Hot Butter's "Popcorn," and indeed "Corn-Flakes" is a conscious and worthy sequel. The other major track is "Krimoogulus," an original on a crime theme. While these moments make it essential for the Moog fan, much of the album seems overly concerned with sound and technique. Wunderlich's skill at multi-dubbing and Moog replication of the standard instruments (except percussion) is phenomenal, to be sure, but he could have taken arrangements in the upbeat "Popcorn" style a lot further. As an introduction to the Moog for his usual customers, however, it more than serves its purpose.
