Ulrich Schnauss Goodbye
- Words: Eric Smillie
- Label: Domino
Goodbye's sweetly melancholy vocal melodies, lush layers of electronics, and effects-heavy guitar recall Cocteau Twins and the UK's dream pop and shoegaze movements of the '80s and '90s. Indeed, the German's equally hazy previous albums landed him remixes for former members of genre bands Slowdive and Ride, not to mention Depeche Mode. On his third record, tracks like "Stars" and "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow" immerse the listener even deeper in a shimmering psychedelia that sometimes washes into Enya territory, most notably on "A Song About Hope." Schnauss notes that Goodbye caps a chapter in his sound-good news, as it's hard to see him moving forward without a change in direction.
