Code III was the vehicle for Manfred Schunke to explore the possibilities of 'Kunstkopf' recording. To do so, he joined forces with two Americans residing in Berlin, Ed and Mary Key. Lyrically, 'Planet Of Man' is committed the big theme of Earth's creation. According to 'The Crack In The Cosmic Egg' book "The music on 'PLANET OF MAN' is a sonic depiction of the history of the Earth, from the void of empty space, via the formation of the planets, the evolution of life, through to man's domination of the planet, and ultimately back to the void. The opening and closing excursions, involving atmospheric electronics, injections of a dreamy folk song, and disembodied resonant female voice, hint a little at Brainticket's 'CELESTIAL OCEAN', although the mood is much spookier. Confusingly 'Dawn Of An Era' (the lyrics are sung in the previous track) involves what sounds like demented Neanderthals involved in some weird drum ritual. 'Countdown' adds up to a blend of atmospheric electronics with abstract use of voice collage and effects (and Indian music), onto a remarkably clever accelerating space-rock burn-out featuring Klaus Schulze at the drum stool! Returning to weird space music at the end, it all adds up to a remarkable and unique album."
