Prog Reviewer
4 stars "Ultima Thule" by TANGERINE DREAM can be regarded as a cross-over between their two previous albums: the psychedelic rock experimental "Electronic Meditation" and the cosmic synthetizer driven "Alpha Centauri". Both tracks feature top space rock melodies which make me think of ancient civilizations collapsing.

The first part starts with Froese's angry guitar until the mellotron introduces the melody, then followed by a punchy psychedelic hard rock riff sometimes remiscent of PINK FLOYD's "A Saucerful of Secrets" and announcing the newt album, "Atem". The second part is more relaxing, but still rocks... It's a pity the tracks are too short, their sound is unique, this EP could have been easily prolongated to a LP. This is the only reason I give it 4 stars and not 5. Highly recommended to all psychedelic / space rock lovers.

NOTE: This EP is now included as bonus tracks on the 2011 Esoteric Release of "Alpha Centauri".

Modrigue | 4/5 |
