Timewind is an album of change for Klaus Schulze. Before this 1975 release, Schulze's brand of kosmische music was a bit darker, with courser textures. It was more dedicated to the original psychedelic mission of consciousness expansion via a radical shaking-up of the senses. Here, the German composer begins to redefine space music as something coolly inviting. It's still heady and experimental (particularly the final five minutes of "Bayreuth Return"), but in a more self-reflective kind of way.
