  • Summary: The third album for the German electronica artist.

  1. Positive: 11 out of 21
  2. Negative: 0 out of 21
  1. Ulrich Schnauss returns with more lush, ambient music fitting for any chill-out session or long summer drive with the windows down.
  2. Goodbye is striking and rewarding in its own way; it just might take a little more time to sink into the murky new agey abyss.
  3. This, his third album and major-label debut, stretches this sea of sound even further, ebbing and flowing from ethereal opener "Never Be The Same," to the folky strum of "For Good."
  4. Goodbye contains both the best and the worst of Schnauss’ output until now.
  5. It’s an evanescent experience, for whilst you’re awestruck by the sonics beneath the electronic sheen, you can’t remember anything much about them after they’ve evaporated at the end.
  6. Goodbye has a tendency to blur together in many places during the course of ten tracks and just under an hour in running length. If you like his past work, you might want to check this one out, but others will probably want to take a pass.
  7. In an apparent attempt to open up his appeal to broader audiences, Schnauss leaves his compositions seeming oddly detoothed.

    Inspirational music. Never gets old. Teleports me to another world. Well blended and unforgettable. One of my top albums of all time. I have laughed at some of the negative reviews out there... Joshua Klein's, in particular. I guess good dreamy music isn't for everybody. Collapse
