Like the silver album the golden album is a song collection from Schnitzler's archive. The "golden" collection has been recorded between 1976 and 1978, originally released (on CD only) by the German label Marginal Talent in 2003. The compositions are guaranteed to dumbfound even the most enlightened Schnitzler listeners. Stuctured like a symphony in various movements, utterly abstract atonal passages are followed by solid sequences of rhythm and harmony, as energetic as Cluster, yet equally evocative of 1980s electronic pop music. Once again, his execution bordering on perfection, Schnitzler has pulled off the ultimate balancing trick between pop and so-called serious music.
