4 stars Fans predisposed to the sprawling psychedelic explorations of ADII's first three albums will often cite this one as their best. I find no reason to argue! Although I enjoy all phases of ADII's career equally (and my personal favorite album is ever changing), when you really need to blast off into space, you cannot beat Tanz der Lemminge. This album is literally an EXPLOSION of music, all over the map, all completely mind warping: you have guitar jams that seem to emanate from the eternal ("Toxicological Whispering"); extended, otherworldy sonic explorations ("Chamsin Soundtrack..."); structured suites full of strong dynamic shifts and haunting timbres ("Syntelman's March of the Roaring Seventies"); completely off the wall riff-based numbers with wacky vocals and brain-bending sound effects (all throughout "Restless Skylight-Transistor-Child...")... I actually cannot describe all this music! It takes a long time before you even begin REMEMBERING anything of what you heard on this album, if you listen to it all in one sitting. Fans of German psychedelic music, or totally spaced out music in general, you absolutely must own this album. One of the greatest achievements by this most daring and original band!
