For reasons not entirely understood 'A Long Way To Fall' isn't generally held in as high a regard as other LPs in Ulrich's back catalog. The album forgoes aspects of the Shoegazer aesthetic so enthusiastically espoused by the past two LPs for a more electronically inflected, bassline-driven direction. You'll find some of Ulrich's absolute best work here, including 'A Forgotten Birthday' which sees the German musician weaving one of his most majestic melodies to date around an insistent 6/8 pulse. ALWTF is a beautiful addition to the Schnauss catalog

A Long Way to Fall" - Ulrich SchnaussVia SoundCloud. Ulrich Schnauss has never been a risky producer. He has released volumes of material as a solo artist and with Engineers, much of it tied to the ambient pop drift of early 1990s shoegaze.

Ulrich has also had a hand in numerous collaborations and is (was?) also a member of UK post-prog band Engineers. A Long Way To Fall is his fourth solo album proper, and takes his sonic template to a slightly different place from before, a place where the skies are darker. Not that it is all doom and gloom, far from it, for opening song Her And The Sea instantly transmits that trademark Schnauss mix of melancholia and optimism, with washes of minor chord synth ebbing and flowing above the upbeat sequencers, all very nice indeed.

Ulrich Schnauss has never been afraid to embrace the new age side of his sound. Even on the albums like 2007's Goodbye, where he went almost full-on shoegaze with plenty of guitars, there was always a softness to the synth textures, and a gentle touch to the melodies, which were soothing, to say the least. On his 2013 album, A Long Way to Fall, Schnauss has fully embraced the new age aesthetic of creating background music perfect to have on while relaxing or getting a foot massage. Though there are some guitars on the album, they are muted to the point of invisibility, and the beats that.

A Long Way To Fall marks German-born electronic artist Ulrich Schnauss' first solo album in six years and fourth studio album.
