Album Review

According to Wunderlich's own translation, it is a "hit parade of synthesizered old evergreens," meaning Moog renditions of [German] cheesy chestnuts. A companion album to Sound 2000, this one benefits greatly from having a theme, however dubious it may sound. In fact, it may be the only Moog album of the day to tackle this material in quite this way. At least two tracks feature electronic whistling, itself a singular achievement. The album never quite reaches the full-on impact of Wunderlich's best, but neither is it a sleeper. "Glow Worm (Moskito-Killer)" may be tasteless but it supplies the kind of inspired hilarity one expects from both Wunderlich and Moog albums. Good humor and creativity make this a charmer all the way through. And at the very end, Wunderlich's own liner notes admonish us, "Should you not like the record please buy all the copies available and destroy them!!!"
