Schiller's Voyage arrives in the U.S. after finding much success in Europe, where it streeted last fall as Weltreise. Unlike Schiller's dancefloor-primed debut, Zeitgeist, Voyage is more dreamy, more meditative—albeit with a dance/electronic bent—making it perfect for post-club chill-out settings. On such sublime tracks as "Distance" (featuring Kim Sanders), "A Beautiful Day" (featuring Isgaard), and lead single "Dream of You" (featuring Heppner), Schiller masterminds Christopher von Deylen and Mirko von Schlieffen effortlessly create a musical montage that recalls early recordings by the likes of Enigma, Deep Forest, and Jean-Michel Jarre, as well as more recent fare by Zero 7 and Faithless. With Voyage, Schiller has taken a savvy look backward in order to properly forge ahead with a new palette and vision.—MP
