Album Review

With Schiller's discography being massive, this well-informed best-of makes for an easy and excellent introduction. The two distinct sides of Schiller — essentially German producer Christopher von Deylen and his chosen helpers — are represented by the big hits "Dream of You" (vocal trance, as dreamy and soft as the song title implies) and "Summernight" (instrumental, soundtrack-like trance with keen awareness of techno). Everything else fills in the details as the self-titled anthem "Schiller" lays some spacy, Kraftwerk-like vocals on top while "You" with Colbie Caillat explores the same sensual and sullen landscape found on later Depeche Mode albums. "Ruhe" represents the more exotic, Deep Forest-type music in the project's back catalog, but all these comparisons don't touch on the patience (tracks are allowed to develop for as long as they require) and reserved nature (everything sways and nothing startles) that are identifiably Schiller.

Customer Reviews

The most underrated trance artist of all time!!

Schiller is not like most trance DJs or any DJ for that matter. He dosen't use repetetive beats or have songs that all sound the same. He dosen't mimic other DJs or what's played on the radio. He focuses on making the most beautiful music anyone could ever do. He uses new age, alternetive, and trance roots all in one beutiful package. He uses the most artistry and musicality than any artist that I've ever heard. Schiller, don't change. Keep doing what your doing and maybe someday a vast majority of people will recognize you!

Love Schiller

This is a great album to pick up, especially if you really haven't purchased any Schiller yet. I already owned the majority of the songs, so I only downloaded 'Beautiful Day', 'Ruhe' and 'Always You'. Of course, as ever, I love them; however, 'Always You' is so special. It evokes that heart stopping emotional experience you get with so much of Schiller's music. The words are haunting. Beautiful. This is a great collection to have.

Schiller is amazing! I been a schiller fan for years

Stunning Schiller! You will love with schiller-the minute you listen to the schiller music.

Named after the German poet Friedrich Schiller, production duo Schiller originally consisted of Mirko von Schlieffen and Christopher von Deylen. The two layered trance beats and spoken poetry, which resulted in a couple of trance chart-toppers in Europe in the late '90s and early 2000. Aside from the Schiller project, both von Schlieffen and von Deylen worked on outside projects. Zeitgeist marked the pair's debut in 1999 (the album was not released in the United States until 2001). The duo began...
