For some unknown reason this album has been forgotten/not rated. I had only heard "Strangely Isolated" and went to see him at his only UK gig at The Borderline in 2013, which is not really geared up for Electronica or so I thought, I was wrong. I thought it would be an evening of mostly quiet electronic noodlings.
The gig started and the usual record label and trendies were there,and talking loud and they weren't in the slightest bit interested in his music. Then about half hour in to his set Ulrich cranked up the gig with an explosion of sonic beats and ear bleeding sounds,all played live. It was mind blowing, and showed his talent to the fore. I had never heard such a stunning live performance like this before .He played the entire "A Long Way To Fall" album with club/rave volume that was rather quiet disturbing (loved it ) at times and a lot of people where totally spellbound by him. I just had to buy the album straight after the gig.
I think this album has been overlooked for some reason or other, I love it because it is busy,there are many layers of complex time signatures which I love, and some gorgeous melodies on top an they production is fantastic.
Check out side three of the album:Forgotten Birthday/Weight of Darkening Skies(best track on the album) and Borrowed time. It is not an ambient album or dance album, it's a prime slab of original electronic music (no pre-set samples here) In my view it's easily one of best electronic albums of the decade .
